Grandparents Day a Grand Success

Posted on: September 20th, 2016 by Admin

Cornerstone Christian Academy celebrates Grandparents Day annually with a special school day where grandparents are welcomed into their grandchildrens’ classroom, along with being treated to a delicious breakfast, and an assembly of student performances.

Cornerstone estimates that over three hundred grandparents attended this year’s celebration on Friday, September 16, 2016. Grandmothers were each given a rose when they entered, and prizes were given to the grandparents who traveled the furthest and had the most grandchildren enrolled at Cornerstone. Special assembly performances included high school senior Jake Giuliano on the piano; Kindergarten and 1st grade classes sang “God Bless the USA” and received a standing ovation from the audience. Parent photographers were set-up throughout the school to take pictures of grandparents with their grandchildren.

Grandparents who visited Cornerstone’s high school classrooms were able to share a bit of history with the students. In primary classes, grandparents and students worked on projects together, and also did science experiments. Many grandparents commented that they felt honored and blessed by the school and their grandchildren.

Cornerstone Christian Academy thanks all of the grandparents and special friends who made this year’s grandparents day a grand success!
