Shortly before Halloween, Aberdeen Elementary School hosted a Harvest festival for students from Lincoln Developmental Center. Students from both schools met each other and introduced themselves with their autobiographies. They then rotated within four groups: adapted bowling, Mad Libs, reading and crafts. Aberdeen fifth-grade teacher Emma Witkovsky and LDC teacher Jessie Rodgers worked together to prepare activities for the students.
