SARATOGA SPRINGS — On Wednesday, Feb. 14, children at the Saratoga Independent School invited their grandparents and “grandfriends” to visit with them and see their classrooms, school work and projects, a homemade snack, and other fun activities throughout the school. They were also given a tour of the new Middle School, scheduled to open in Sept. 2018.
“Children feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when they know that people in their family and community are interested in them and their school. Our second annual Grandparents and Grandfriends Day gives our students an opportunity to share a special part of their lives with their loved ones,” said Pamela Howard, Director of Development.
“Grandparents and good family friends, or ‘Grandfriends,’ are very important people in our children’s lives and in the life of Saratoga Independent School. Valentine’s Day, we celebrated the many gifts: laughter; understanding; listening; family stories and memories to last a lifetime; and, most of all, unconditional love that grandparents bring to our lives,” said Lisa Brown, Head of School.
