Grandparents in the Classroom!

Grandparent's Day in the classroom was held last week in Grahamwood Elementary’s first grade Optional classrooms. In Rachel Helton’s class, grandparents and even some parents visited and shared stories of their elementary school days and participated in learning activities. In Barbara Paris’ class, students and grandparents ate donuts and spent time learning about their grandchildren’s day in school. Another activity included a family-themed word search game that grandparents and students solved together. Over a dozen family members participated in each class. “I had the pleasure of joining the grandparents,” states Grahamwood’s Optional Coordinator Dr. D. Jackson Maxwell. “The teachers goal was to get the extended family involved in our students’ education. It was obvious that this worked and a most excellent time was had by all!”
