To Wingate, with love

Shawsheen students craft handmade valentines


The Andover Townsman

---- — Shawsheen Elementary School got into the Valentine‚Äôs Day spirit a little early last week with the creation of heart-shaped messages for some local nursing home residents.

Students in kindergarten through second grade made and decorated red and pink valentines as part of an all-school program.

Some of the children invited their grandparents in to lend a hand with their paper-heart cards, too.

The students will now spread their love to the residents of Wingate Nursing Home in Andover, where the completed valentines are being delivered.
