High school students at Sacred Hearts Academy brought their grandparents to school earlier this month, for the annual celebration of Grandparents Day.

Grandparents Day was a way for the Academy to recognize the positive influence they have on their grandchildren. In addition, students showed gratitude to their grandparents for all that they have done for them.

Junior Haley Peterson says, “This is the 12th Grandparents Day my grandparents attended, and it never gets old. I appreciate the school hosting this day because I get to spend time with my grandparents at school.”

Students in 7th to 9th grade had a slightly different schedule than those in 10th to 12th grade. However, both groups had a “Thank You to Our Grandparents” paraliturgy in the gym.

All students and grandparents were then dismissed to their homerooms for a potluck and activities planned by each homeroom.

While most homerooms had an assortment of different foods, some treated their grandparents to an omelette and waffle bar.

Junior homeroom teacher Kinga Wojtas says, “I think we had a lot of fun. I enjoyed both the Pictionary and Just Dance games. The grandparents actively participated…and overall, I think we had a successful day.”

To top the day off, grandparents received a gift from the school as they left campus.
