Grandparents Honored at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School
On Wednesday, September 14, 2016 close to 300 grandparents and special friends celebrated Grandparents’ Day, an annual favorite, at SCBCS. After celebrating Mass, the guests enjoyed short performances by PreK, Kindergarten, and First graders. Breakfast treats were enjoyed in the social hall followed by classroom visits. It was a wonderful opportunity for students to show off their school to some of the most important adults in their lives.
The Home & School Association and parent volunteers coordinated this special event from decorations to food and clean-up. The occasion also marked the 5th annual Adoptative Grandparent Program where over 15 parishioners were partnered up with students whose grandparents are either deceased or live too far away to travel. A highlight were the “goodie” bag give-a-ways to the oldest grandparent (84 years old), youngest grandparent (31 years old), most grandchildren in the school (4) and other fun questions.
Grandparents are the fiber of our roots, we want to thank them for their legacy of love, wisdom, and sacrifice. Thank you to all grandparents who travelled near and far to join us on this very special day.
