Bridgeways Sponsors Pen-Pal Program for CES Students

The staff of BridgeWays Coosa County is excited to have the opportunity to partner with the Central Elementary School (CES) after-school bi-monthly. The students participating in the after school program recently had an opportunity to participate in a pen-pal program with BridgeWay's Camp Fletcher after-school program, located in Western Jefferson County. The youth of the two programs have been matched up with a "pal" and are handwriting each other notes every few weeks. Pictured are some of our CES students receiving their first mailed response from their pen-pal. Many adults were excited to see the lost art of writing letters rekindled in our students.
