How The Gardner School Honors Grandparents

Family Living | March 23, 2018

Grandparents play a very special role in the life of a child. It’s been said that a grandparent is a little bit parent, a little bit teacher, and a little bit best friend. We’ve witnessed that to be true at The Gardner School, and it’s a special honor to have grandparents visit our schools. Our students always look forward to the month of March, as many of our schools host special activities to honor The Gardner School’s grandparents.

From spring-themed luncheons to hearty meals to tea and treats, here’s a peek at some of the fun our students and their grandparents had this month at many of our schools. Hats off to you, grandparents! Thank you for investing in the academic lives of your grandchildren.
