School-age students enrolled in LVCC at Stones Crossing (Easton) are shown here playing a "cooperative game" called Circle-to-Circle. The objective is to pass the hola hoop around the circle without breaking hands. Cooperative games are physical and mental activities intended to teach teamwork, leadership and problem-solving skills. LVCC school-age staff underwent training last year to learn and incorporate cooperative games into their curriculum. A grant from Hospital Central Services Education Fund helped LVCC purchase equipment.
