June 6, 2019 - Dollar Dog Day - Ice Cream Social

Grandparents Day - 

GAPS would like to thank all Grimshaw staff, parent volunteers, student council & LASP, for making Grimshaw’s 16th annual Grandparents’ Day a success. It was greatly attended with over 380 guests, who were welcomed by a chorus performance from the fourth graders, led by Mrs Snyder. The fourth graders worked with her for many weeks practicing the songs.

The guests then spent time with the children in their classrooms, doing a variety of activities led by the teachers and teaching assistants. They also enjoyed a wonderful Art Show exhibition in the gymnasium, coordinated by Mrs Reppi, and were able to have portraits taken with the help of the reading room teachers.

We thank the cafeteria staff for a delicious lunch and refreshments served throughout the day. Many thanks also to the transportation department, facilitating the transportation of the guests to and from school and the LaFayette Fire Barn. With the teamwork of the custodial staff, administrators/secretaries and parent volunteers, everything went smoothly from preparation to clean up. Lastly, thank you to all who helped with the Gertrude Hawk fundraiser. Money raised from that funded this wonderful event. 

Many thanks again to everyone for making the day so enjoyable and special for the grandparents and children.
