Grandparents share school experience with kin

The administration invites all grandparents to vist their grandchildren and enjoy a free lunch, for the 15th annual Grandparents Day on Sept. 8.

To uphold tradition the home economics class is baking: peanut butter, oatmeal craison, brown sugar walnut, chocolate chip and snicker doodle cookie for the grandparents.

?The home ec class is baking cookies for the grandparents,? Nichole Bos, ?07, said. ?I think it?s a good idea for the students make cookies for the grandparents because they get to taste all the yummy cookies we made for them and see what we are doing in class.?

The class started cookie preparation since last week and made 100 dozen cookies.

“Tim Wilkins (superintendent) wanted the students to get involved with the lunch for Grandparents Day,” Sharon Scharf, home ec. teacher, said. “The grandparents get to see what the students have been doing in the home ec class and try the cookies they made.”

Some students enjoy Grandparents Day for bragging rights.

?I want my grandparents to come to Grandparents Day,? Andrew Biehler, ?08, said. ?I could brag on how good their cooking is and it?s also fun to see every one?s grandparents.?

Students often use Grandparents Day to spend extra time wtih grandparents.

?I think Grandparents Day is a good idea,? Breanne Gandolfo ’07, said. ?I get to spend time with my grammy and pappy.?

Some enjoy the food aspect of Grandparents Day, which is held in Peoples Church gym.

?I love Grandparents Day,? Carson Hopper, ?08, said, ?because my grandparents take me out to lunch and it?s free.?

Some of the grandparents have been attending Grandparents Day even since their loved ones where in kindergarten.

?I want my grandparents to come to Grandparents Day,? Tyler Grham ?09, said. ?My grandparents have attended Grandparents Day since I was in kindergarten.?

Some students do not get the chance to experience grandparents Day with their grandparents.

?My grandparents passed away,? Stephanie Major, ?08, said, ?but I still find ways to enjoy Grandparents Day with my friends.?

Teachers often find the experience of Grandparents Day gives them a sense of family.

“I think Grandparents Day is a great for our campus to do because school is not always about school it’s about family,” Scott Falk, Bible teacher, said. “When grandparents come it helps the teachers and students get the sense of family is with them and that your family supports our school.”

Grandparents are expected to arrive by 9 A.M. and will listen to a brief presentation in Ground Zero and then attend two-three classes with their grandchild before sharing a lunch together.
