The saying “it takes a village to raise a child” is especially appropriate today because it was Grandparents Day. This day should really should be called “VIP” Day because our school was full of very important people in the lives of our students. Feelings of joy, excitement, and pride showed on the face of every student as their toured their “VIP” around.

Grandparents play a vital role in the life of a child and they all provide our school with a lot of support. We are lucky to have so many grandparents that help our school in a variety of ways. Some make financial donations to get our school going strong, some come and read with students, some are there when we have a sick student who needs to be picked up, some drop off their grandchildren every morning, and some are just there when a child needs them. No matter the capacity, it is always appreciated. That is why we have Grandparents Day each year — it is our small way to say thank you!

If you are a grandparent who would like to attend next year but did not receive an invitation in the mail, please send me an email () with your name and the name of your grandchild so that I may add you to our list.
