Cascade Elementary School held its annual Grandparents Day Celebration on Sept. 7, welcoming a record 48 grandparents for a school lunch date with their grandchildren.

Kimberly R. David, Cascade Elementary School International Baccalaureate specialist and communications ambassador, says the purpose of the annual event is to honor grandparents, give grandparents an opportunity to show their love for their grandchildren, and to help children become aware of the strength, information, and guidance that seniors can offer.

“Grandparents play a significant role in the lives of their grandchildren. They provide support, advice and love,” David said.

Previous years’ attendance averaged around 20 participating grandparents.

National Grandparents Day was Sept. 9.
