The Langston Charter Middle School girls’ seventh-grade Spanish classes took a field trip recently to an assisted living facility to sing Christmas carols in Spanish.
The girls had so much fun at Southern Oaks Personal Care Home and really brightened the lives of the residents, reported Elaine Avla, the school's briefs coordinator.
The residents loved having the girls there and asked them to please come back next year.
