On May 2, more than 160 grandparents enjoyed a day of appreciation at Julian Curtiss School in celebration of National Grandparents Day.

The festivities for the school’s longstanding tradition began with a complimentary continental breakfast and a welcome speech from the school’s principal, Trish McGuire.

Guests enjoyed a performance from the school’s Choraleers, an honor choir comprised of fourth and fifth graders and a slide show featuring the faces of the many grandparents of the student body.

Following breakfast, the grandparents visited their grandchildren’s classrooms.

As not every grandparent was able to attend, the visiting grandparents became special guests for each classroom, interacting with all of the students through various activities.

In some classrooms, grandparents got acquainted with and played games with the students, while in others grandparents shared their life stories and experiences.

At the end of their visit, the visiting grandparents received a small potted plant as a thank you gift, in remembrance of the special occasion.
