The K-2 classes held their annual Grandparents Tea on Friday September 16th. There was a great turnout of grandparents, parents and other guests. The students did a fabulous job of presenting poems and songs for their grandparents. As well the grandparents enjoyed a snack and then spent some time visiting with their grandchild in their classes and meeting their teachers.
It was a great day and we want to thank eveyone for attending!
