Grandparents’ Day was just last week Friday and by the looks of it, it went quite well. This day is to celebrate all of our grandparents and all they have done for us through the years; it is to show them that we love them immensely.
We started this very hot day by welcoming all of the lovely grandparents into Westlake’s building. Juniors and Seniors such as Hope Perry and Eli Sensenig, acted as guides for grandparents so that they could find their grandchild’s classes. After each grandparent got settled in, the teacher started class and included the grandparents in either quizzes or discussion, etc. It’s quite creative!
After some time in the classrooms, grandparents were called to the gym where we provided morning snacks and coffee for them to munch on. We received many comments on the great food.
After a short introductory speech from Dr. Healan in the gymnasium, Westlake students filed in and the program for the Grandparents’ Day commenced. This program includes different grades either singing, praying, or giving speeches on what grandparents are and mean to them.
During the program, the High School choir sang and there were many comments from different grandparents about how moving and beautiful the performance was. This is quite a compliment and definitely makes us proud of our new choir teacher, Mrs. Culbertson.
Though the day was hot and everyone was very sweaty in the gym, no one heard any complaints from grandparents on our program. We would like to thank all the lovely grandparents who traveled to come to this program so that we could show you how much we appreciate you. Westlake hopes that you truly enjoyed the program and will never forget how much you mean to each and every student here.
