Seniors in Iowa have become viral on social media thanks to their cute advice for juniors.

The Garden View Assisted Living center in Carroll is praised for the heart-warming series of images shared on Facebook, inspired by a trend where parents photograph their children with personalized blackboards.

In the snaps, residents in the 80s and 90s share their learned advice for children starting and returning to school. A woman, only three years shy of 100 years old, summarized her life experience when she told the students: & Do your best and have fun! & # 39;

On Facebook, the pension facility said that they loved & # 39; all the beautiful photos & # 39; s in school & # 39; who had flooded the internet – so they decided to make one themselves.

In 15 images, the & # 39; lifelong learners shared & # 39; of the facility their personal wisdom.

Despite the fact that Gladys, 86, Arnie, 81, Marie, 97 and Loretta, 94 and three-quarters, already graduated in the 1940s and 1950s (or & # 39; many moons ago & # 39; as Marie put it), their advice still sounds good today.

Even Paul, who is elusive his age as & # 39; young at heart & # 39; described, had tried and tested tips for sharing.

Staffers LJ, 57, and Cindy, 52, also announced their respective advice: & # 39; no bullying & # 39; and & # 39; work hard for what you want & # 39 ;.

Bernadine, 90, left the school in 1944 after the eighth grade, but she obtained her GED more than 30 years later in 1975.

& # 39; Do your best every day & # 39 ;, was the advice she gave.

Arlene, 93, who also left school after the eighth grade in 1939, urged students to watch & # 39; if your teachers talk & # 39 ;.

Other advice was to read a lot, ask questions, study hard, have respect and & # 39; get the best out of everything you can & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Every day we are blessed to experience these wonderful relationships, and we are well founded that you can all see in one message how happy our tenants are and how much our employees like being part of their community. & # 39;

As praise for the photos, many teachers said they would show their students the advice.

& # 39; This is fantastic! We have so much to learn from generations coming before us! Thank you for doing this! And (by the way) … None of you see the age on your plates, & said a Facebook user.

& # 39; Thank you so much !!!! I will share these pearls of wisdom with my 9th graders in Arizona, & another user said.

& # 39; I want some of the Fountain of Youth water that you drink! Everyone looks great! It's probably your great attitude! I am surprised at how many only 8th grade ended. That was interesting. Thanks for the great advice, & # 39; praised another.

The trend to share back to school boards continues to grow on Instagram, hundreds have been posted this month alone.
