Lima Senior high schoolers and Unity Elementary third grade students spent some time together Wednesday afternoon with a new program called Spartan 360.

The program is a joint effort between Lima Senior's Early Childhood Education and Patient Care programs, Unity Elementary, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.  The high school students that visit the elementary school are paired up with a "little" and eat lunch, play games, and work on learning activities together.  Spartan 360 was designed to allow some hands on learning for the Lima Senior students.

"Our students wanted a little bit of actual, real involvement in the community, and we wanted involvement in the community as well, so for Early Childhood it works out they are actually getting to stay with younger students, and for Patient Care students it's giving them a chance to work with students and learn how to educate because that's what nurses do in the field," said Ashley Rozell, Patient Care teacher for Lima Senior.

The program will be every Wednesday throughout the school year, with a different theme every month.
