Holy Cross School held its annual Grandparents’ Day celebration on Oct. 26, with students in kindergarten through grade 8 hosting their loved ones for a variety of activities.

The day began with a school-wide Mass. Students then returned to their classrooms to get ready for special activities, while grandparents enjoyed refreshments.

Younger students dazzled their grandparents by singing songs dedicated to them, and shared various activities with them, including story time, poems, interviews, and crafts.

Eighth grade students introduced their grandparents to virtual reality in the science lab. Also, many students went to the school’s book fair with their grandparents, who were happy to purchase books for their grandchildren.

“What a wonderful experience I had visiting Holy Cross School and meeting so many nice children and parents,” said grandmother Dido Krikorian.
