Grandparents' Day

Submitted by beth.knudsen on

Barnett Elementary School’s 3rd grade Grandparents’ Day Program was October 4th. The students were excited to eat turkey and mashed potatoes with their grandparents for lunch. They then got to show them around the school, play at recess, and visit the Book Fair. Parents, grandparents, and students returned to the lunchroom for the program. The students recited poems, shared stories about their grandparents, and sang songs such as “Edelweiss” and “Grandma’s Feather Bed.” A new addition to the Grandparents’ Day tradition was Mr. Applegate playing the guitar for a few songs; this was a favorite for students during both our practices and the performance. After the performance, the 3rd graders and their grandparents treated themselves to delicious cookies provided by the Barnett PTA. We love our grandparents and are glad we could share this special day with them!
