On May 9, 2014, Monck Public School in Bracebridge hosted their annual Grandparents Day event for their kindergarten to grade 6 students. Grandparents Day is a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase their school, share their classroom learning, and sometimes even teach their grandparents how to use computers and SMART Boards. Grandparents enjoyed listening to performances from the Grade 8 Band, Junior Choir, Jazz Band, flute soloist, kindergarten and primary students, and a student led “Happy Dance” to Pharrell William’s popular song “Happy.”

After the performances, grandparents were invited to visit classrooms, browse the Book Fair, and enjoy a social of coffee and cookies. Monck Public School would like to extend a very special thank-you to all the grandparents who attended Grandparents Day.
