Students were sent home with an invitation to give to their grandparents for this special day. Home & School will provide a lunch for the students and grandparents and there will be a program given by the students for their grandparents. If a student doesn't have a local grandparent to invite, they are encouraged to invite a neighbor or other family friend to step in as a grandparent.
