Third grade students at Little Cypress Elementary School celebrated Grandparent Day by inviting theirs to lunch. Classes participated in different activities preparing for the celebration, including making family trees dating back three generations.

Valeri Roberts’ class made a story quilt about their grandparents and how they “tie” families together; students made cards and sang a song to their grandparents in their classroom.

Julie Landry’s class wrote essays telling why their grandparent is their hero. Some of the notable quotes include:

 “My Nana and Papa are my heroes because they are super nice, their cooking is amazing and their parenting skills are enough to drive a mean troll nice.”— Rustyn Ackerman

 “My Mimi is the best because she gets me anything I want. I couldn’t ask for a better Mimi.”—Alli Gross

“My Granddad is the best because he has inspired me to fish in all kinds of conditions including rain, snow, ice and wind.”—Jacob Longlois
