Ely Elementary celebrated Grandparents Recognition Day on Tuesday, October 4 and Wednesday, October 5.

The first day saw the grandparents of students with last names A-L, and the second day was set for the grandparents of students with last names M-Z.

Grandparents observed classroom activities, ate lunch with their grandchildren and went outside for recess.

[The day] has been interesting, so far," Sylvia Heidlebaugh, grandmother to sixth grader Mykell Heidlebaugh, said. "I lost my meal ticket, so I had to tell the class that. They thought that was funny."

Heidlebaugh said that the 6th grade grandparents watched the class work on math problems. The class also performed a play for their grandparents.

Marilyn Sattler, grandmother to sixth grader Logan Harner, also had a good time on her last Grandparents Day.

It's going good. [My favorite part] is sitting in the classroom with him, seeing what he's working on. It's my last year, so I'm glad I get to be here," she said.
