Grandparent and Special Friend Day a Success
Superintendent Wayne Weber
Recently, I had the good fortune to attend Grandparent/Special Friend Day at the Rosendale Intermediate School. The program recognized and showed appreciation for our Kindergarten through fifth grade students’ grandparents and special friends. For the past couple years, we’ve held the program at the Intermediate School Gym due to the volume of attendees! We couldn’t fit the K-3 families and friends in the Primary School Gym. This necessitated us bringing our K-3 students to the Intermediate School for the program. What a great problem to have!
For those of you who attended the event this year or in years past, I’m sure you’ll agree that it the only way to describe it is AWESOME! My son, Luke, is in fourth grade, so I attended the event with my mom and my mother-in-law. Spending a portion of an afternoon at this event, I couldn’t help being filled with pride, as a superintendent, as a parent, and as a community member. The excitement with which our students performed for their audience was clearly visible. That excitement and enthusiasm grew as the students showed their grandparents and special friends around the school and classrooms--sharing what they were learning and projects they had been working on.
Much effort goes into making an event like this successful. Special thanks goes out to Mrs. Vande Berg for organizing the performance and Mrs. Wigchers and her student council students for helping with parking and organizing the refreshments. Then there are the K-5 teachers, assistants and office staff who do all the behind-the-scenes work to make sure students are where they need to be when they need to be there. However, the biggest THANK YOU goes to our families and friends for showing up to support our students. We all have busy schedules and other commitments, but our enthusiasm in supporting events like this is what fills our students with pride in their accomplishments. They feed off our interest in what they are learning and doing, and it is important that we give them opportunities to share that learning, not only on days like this.
Strong community support for our school and, in turn, school support for our community is one of the many things I love about this district. I look forward to seeing more evidence of this support when I attend the Veteran’s Day Program at Brandon School on November 11 at 9:30. The program gives our students the opportunity to show appreciation for heroes living here in our community. Spartan Pride is alive and well!
