ACS kids are ‘bingo buddies’Published 5:51pm Tuesday, April 22, 2014
That was the word loudly proclaimed by both youngsters and the young at heart Monday afternoon at the Atmore Nursing Center, as first graders and second graders from Atmore Christian School visited the residents to play bingo and socialize.
The visit from the ACS students kicked off a lengthy list of service activities that the kids will be participating in throughout the week. On Wednesday, junior high and high school students will work on some landscaping projects at the Mennonite Christian Fellowship and a nearby house. On Thursday, kindergartners will pick up trash in the park with “Tillie the Turtle,” and third graders through sixth graders will be cleaning up trash on Church Street, Medical Park Drive, and possibly Patterson Street.
The week of activities is designed to help the ACS students put their words into action and improve the community in which they live.
First graders who played bingo Monday were Ann Elise Classen, Beau Daw, Mary Joyner Dean, Eli Galloway, Victoria Hawkes, Daniel Overton, Gabe Ross, Cierra Wynn and Elisha Vest. Second graders who joined in the fun were Emmett Battles, Patrick Byrd, Brandon Ferguson, Molly Gandy, Luis Garcia, Amber Johnson, Tava Johnson, Olivia Mims and Ryan Odom.
