Happy New Year from San Carlos Elms. Today we celebrated with our annual it's Midnight Somewhere party. We enjoyed cider, cake, music, and each other's company, but the most fun we had was reminiscing about the past year, through pictures we had taken. We made a yearbook and had a film rolling of everything we had done throughout the year and the friends we made. It really was a fun party. Can't wait to do it again!

Thank you Brittan Acres for spreading so much Holiday Joy today at San Carlos Elms. The Residents enjoyed every minute of it. They especially enjoyed the different languages the students sang. We all appreciated all the students who performed on the piano and the girls who did the bells during Jingle Bells.
Thank you Heidi, thank you to your students, and thank you to all the parents that came to enjoy the morning with us. See you again real soon!

This morning has been busy for us here at San Carlos Elms. We had Carolers from Central School 7th & 8th Grade Leadership Class at 9:40 and 10:40 this morning. We also had a group of kindergarteners here from St. Charles School Caroling for our Residents in Our Memory Program, they also brought cards for the residents.
It was a fun morning of singing the classics "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" so much enjoyment for all the kids and Residents.
Thank you to all the singers, the teachers, and of course the parents who came along for support.
May you all have a Happy Holiday with your Family!
