Grandparents & Grand Friends’ Day
April 16, 2015
What is the legacy that grandparents leave for their grandchildren? The best legacy may be the love and time spent together, creating memories and sharing stories. At Walden School, Director Matt Allio welcomed over 200 grandparents and “grand friends” to campus on April 2, saying, “Your presence today, and throughout the lives of the students, amplifies the importance of our educational process.”
Students hosted their grandparents in classrooms and reprised their recent Spring Sing concert in the Toby Hayward Community Room to the delight of their special guests.
Grandparent Marguerite Lathan says, “We cannot wait to see our grandchildren’s classes, meet their teachers, meet their new and old friends, see their class works and performances!” Maja Dubois came all the way from Greenwich, CT to see her twin nieces. Grandparent Olivia Brown, who is also a Trustee at Walden, adds, “This is our favorite day of the year!”
Ron and Karen Dean look forward to this annual event. “It’s fun to visit with other grandparents and grand friends from all over the U.S. and other countries. The volunteers do an amazing job!”
