On a beautiful, sunny afternoon in early May, lower school students were given an opportunity to show off their relatives at the annual Grandparents’ Day. Approximately 180 students had grandparents or grandfriends present and all were treated to a special afternoon.
Chris Nikoloff, head of school, gave the opening remarks and was followed by special grandparents’ Day performances – students in Gr. 1 and Gr. 4 sang songs and Dance Fusion performed. After the performances the students and their families toured the campus, with many a beaming grandparent holding a small hand in theirs. Refreshments were served and visitors met with teachers, viewed art exhibits and reveled in seeing a slice of their grandchildren’s day. Once again this event was extremely successful and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
