Grandparents Day celebration

Children at E. C. Montessori & Grade School on Lady’s Island celebrated Grandparents Day on Friday, September 9th.  Primary children, ages 3 to 6, enjoyed showing grandparents their favorite Montessori work, giving them lessons, and singing songs in honor of their grandparents.  Elementary students, grades first through sixth, gave their grandparents a tour of the classroom, showed them their favorite work, and presented them with birdhouses made from gourds. Mr. Bobby Malphrus of Ridgeland graciously donated the gourds, which the children then decorated.
Afterwards, grandparents were served refreshments provided by the Community Relations Committee of E. C. Montessori & Grade School.
