PECS students celebrate their grandparents

BRIGHTON — Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School students had a “love”-ly lunch Sept. 6 when grandparents, hugs and kisses filled the school cafeteria for Grandparents Day.

The menu consisted of fried chicken and all the fixings, but the look of love on young and older faces was the best part of the meal.

National Grandparents Day has been celebrated since 1978 to honor grandparents, give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children and to help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.
