TYLER, TX (KLTV) - This week people of all ages are spreading a little love. That includes the Pre-K students at the Brook Hill School. They visited three senior living communities in Tyler to share some Valentine's Day cheer.
"We got a chance to pass out homemade Valentine cards and fuzzy socks," teacher Stacy Bell said. "[We} went around and gave the residents love and hugs and just enjoyed ourselves; we also sang Jesus loves me."
Bell started this tradition six years ago. She said every year her students along with Mrs. Haugh's and Mrs. Chesley's Pre-K classes take part in this community service project to show the importance of love.
"I think it teaches them that we all need to stop [and] take the time so everyone will know they are all important and everyone is special," she said.
Bell said all of the residents they come across love visiting with the kids.
"Oh, it was just wonderful; it makes my heart beat faster and that may not be a good thing but I can turn it in to one," senior living resident Cay Goolsby said.
These students and their teacher believe that sometimes all we need is a good hug and a little kindness. Pre-K teachers at the Brook Hill School said their students love visiting the residents at the senior living communities because they remind them of their own grandparents.
