Grandparents Light the Way

seanmaz-lindamclaughlinGP13We have many traditions here at MSS. One of them is Grandparents Day, which is this Friday, September 26th. On this day each year, we open our doors to those special people who play a pivotal role in our students’ lives. Despite it being “Grandparents” Day, we intend for the day to include special relatives or friends who may not be grandparents, but who perhaps have taken a similar role in your family. Children can never have too many people to love them.

We couldn’t exist without our grandparents. Directly or indirectly, they influence who we are as people. Pope Francis says of grandparents:

“Like the Holy Family of Nazareth, every family is part of the history of a people; it cannot exist without the generations who have gone before it. Therefore, today we have grandparents and children. The children learn from their grandparents, from the previous generation.”

This annual event is our way of showing appreciation to grandparents and other influential people who have helped our students become the beautiful children of God that they are. It’s a token of our gratitude for their love and support.

We look forward to meeting these special people!

Our celebration of Grandparents Day will begin at 10 a.m. and end with an early dismissal at 12:30 p.m. for all grades, including Pre-K. If a grandparent will be taking a child home, please send a note in for your child’s teacher!
