To read more about Grandparents' Day and view last year's skit, click HERE.
While my students set up their props on stage, I greeted the audience and introduced the skit. I reminded the crowd, "If you have come to our Grandparents' Day Program in the past, you know that 5th grade usually performs some type of skit. What you may not realize is that each skit is unique and different and reflects my current group of students' grandparents. I gather my students together each year and ask them to share with me what they love most about their grandparents, what makes you all special, etc. They answer my questions and tell stories about you, and based on that information, I write a script. So today, as my students portray grandparents and grandchildren in this lighthearted skit, be aware that you may recognize yourself on stage!"
Considering all we went through, the students did a fabulous job, and I am so proud of their flexibility, perseverance, and hard work. I hope the grandparents were blessed!
