    Our school has done Grandparents Day for about 5 years now and each year we get a little bit better and more organized.:) It's fun by the PTA and is all voluteer. We start with a brunch in the gym for all grandparents. Usually a slide show is going that shows photos of the students with their grandparents (they send in the photos and someone makes a CD) After brunch, the children do a little mini-concert (a couple of songs per department) Then the grandparents are dismissed to visit the classrooms.

    One very important thing to remember is that the grandparents will often have more than one classroom to visit. We usually have an optional craft in each room.....a photograph frame to decorate is a popular one---and the grandparents and children can choose to do it or not. Sometimes the children just want to show the room and their work that is being displayed (make sure you have something from every child displayed somewhere in the room)

    Good luck and don't worry. The first time will be a learning experience and the grandparents just love being around their grandchildren anyway
