Grandfriends' Day, 2012

Grandfriends' Day is an annual event for first graders.  It is traditionally held on the Friday before the Memorial Day holiday.  Students drew portraits of their grandparents and wrote similies which were on display in the library for the gathering.  In addition, students viewed a slide show with music and photos of their grandparents.  They performed 3 songs from their recent spring concert and enjoyed snacks with their guests.  For the the first time this year, two first graders, whose grandparents could not attend, skyped their grandparents and carried around an ipad so that the grandparents could join in the festivities from afar.
