Grandparents Day held at Galena Elementary
Grandparents from the Marshall County area had the opportunity to eat breakfast, take pictures and visit their grandchildren’s classrooms recently at Galena Elementary Annual Grandparents Day.
Many of the grandparents attended Galena as students.
The grandmas and grandpas in attendance toured the campus and witnessed high-tech tools in the classrooms such as laptops, enoboards and I Mac computers.
Classes had activities for the grandparents as they rotated from class to class. Activities included interviewing your grandparent, completing a family tree with your grandparent and coloring with your grandparent.
It was a huge success! The kids loved it and so did the grandparents.
