Students and Grandparents to enjoy class, lunch together

This coming Friday, students and their grandparents will attend classes together to celebrate the annual Grandparent’s Day celebration, Sept. 13.

National Grandparents Day, which became a holiday in 1978, is celebrated every Sunday after Labor Day. Campus Grandparents Day is Sept 13 this year. Grandparents will visit periods three and four, including lunch, which is held before fifth period. Lunch will be held in the Peoples Church (PC) Gym, the PC Multi-Purpose Room and the Jackie Johnson Room.

FC holds a Grandparent’s day celebration annually, giving student’s grandparents a chance to meet their friends, see what classes they have and what they are learning. Principal Todd Bennett explained one of the reasons the school has this celebration.

“It’s biblical to respect your grandparents, your elders and this gives us a way to show respect and to honor them,” Bennett said. “And invite them to be apart of our lives and see what happens in our daily lives at school. It’s a really nice day and the kids and grandparents are usually very proud of each other.”

Senior Brieann Winchell explained why she and her grandmother enjoy Grandparents day.

“I get to hang out with my awesome Grandma,” Winchell said. “My grandma likes to see my friends and what I do at school. She’s always at Grandparents day and loves to see what we do here.”

Students as well as teacher’s enjoy and see the value of the celebration. Science and Chinese language teacher Dan Harris enjoys FC’s annual celebration of Grandparent’s day.

“I think it’s a really good idea from the grandparent’s perspectives,” Harris said. “They get to see their grandchildren succeeding and growing in their faith. I also think it’s very very important for kids to recognize the value of those who have lived a long time. Each of our grandparent’s experiences are unique. So having a chance to share an experience with them I think is extremely valuable.”

The following is the special schedule for Friday, Sept. 13.
