On Thursday, May 30, OLM School and Parish welcomed close to 300 grandparents from near and far for the school’s fifth annual “Grandparents Day” celebration. The day began with 9:00 Mass to mark the Feast of the Ascension of our Lord which was celebrated by the Most Reverend Robert C. Evans, Auxilary Bishop of Providence. Following the mass, the students and their guests visited the school for a variety of activities including a reception in the cafeteria, school tours, and special presentations in the classrooms. Led by the individual classroom teachers, students sang prepared songs, played games and took photos with their grandparents and special guests. Students in Mrs. Nygren’s fifth grade classroom were treated to a game of “Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?” based on the popular game show of the same name. As many of the grandparents realized, the students came out ahead in their knowledge in many subject areas! Mrs. Verret’s seventh grade class unplugged from their tech devices and played old school board games such as Monopoly, Scrabble, and Yahtzee with their family. This was such a bonding moment for both generations as they were having fun at any age. Grandparents attending Mrs. Maguire’s third grade class were interviewed by their grandchildren on what was happening in the world when they were in third grade. Whatever the grade, all OLM grandparents agreed it was a wonderful celebration with their grandchildren and a great opportunity to visit their wonderful school.
