Wellington Elementary P.A.C.E. students and seniors display their ABC books.

P.A.C.E. program During the past school year, Northshore schools have been regular visitors at the Woodinville Adult Day Center, an activity that has benefited both the seniors and the youngsters.
   Bob Whitlemore's 4th, 5th, and 6th grade P.A.C.E. students have visited the center every week to work with the seniors to create a unique ABC book which will be distributed to the children of the Family Village in Redmond. Carmela Koeplin, a parent/volunteer, was the organizer of the project.
   Children from the Cottage Lake Preschool have shared songs and craft projects with the seniors throughout the year.
   For a second year, students from Hollywood Hills Elementary have taken part in a pen pal exchange. Second graders from Griff Williams' class had many questions for the seniors, and the center participants enjoyed a special visit to the school.
