Grandparents Tea Caps First Week of School

Peacocks are knows for strutting their stuff. First graders in Mrs. Symons’ class used the birds to help show off what they have learned over the first three days of school to some important guests.

The students hosted their grandparents for a Grandparents Tea. The first graders cut and colored paper peacocks and showed their loved ones their math journals.

“We want to get grandparents in to celebrate families and extended families. We want to get people in school who wouldn’t normally get in to spend time with the kids,” said first-grade teacher Kim Symons.

First grader Blake Pellerin had fun pecking at his grandmother with his paper peacock.

“I love it. I took time off from work especially for this,” said Nanette Pellerin, Blake’s grandmother.

The official Grandparents Day is Sunday, September 10th.
