- Students at Northwoods Community Elementary School show appreciation for the grandparents in their lives.
Each grade presented why they appreciated their grandparents through artwork, stories, and even a song.
Fourth grade teacher Mrs. Young helped put today's events together. "We just want the grandparents to feel that they are special and that they are a big part of our lives in this community."
Elizabeth Boehm, 5th grader, describes her project. "We made a picture of wildflowers using crayons and water colors."
The students then got their grandparents on their feet and boogied down to a folk tune.
Jaxson Klitzka, 5th grader, understands what grandparents day is all about. "Very kind, and nice, and caring, and I say they are very energetic because they work for your love and respect."
Many people celebrate national Grandparents Day the Sunday after Labor Day. This year's was September 11th.
