GLANDORF — The rain fell and the wind blew it sideways on Friday, but
inside the halls of Glandorf Elementary School warmth was felt all
around. April 4 was designated by the school as Grandparents’ Day to
honor all of the grandparents of the school’s students.
began at 8:30 a.m. As grandparents entered the school, they were each
greeted by students who offered each guest a gift bag before directing
them to a V.I.P. reception (coffee and donuts) in the cafeteria. At 9
a.m., a special program was performed in the gym. Each grade level
performed a selection of musical numbers, some complete with
choreography and others with instruments as diverse as recorders to
pencil sharpeners and trash cans.
Following this program,
grandparents were invited to join their grandchildren for lunch followed
by classroom visits until 1 p.m.
