Today is Grandparent's Day at Smithville Elementary. The official Grandparent's day is this Sunday, but today is our day to celebrate our special members of the family.
Grandparents Day was officially recognized in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter. This day has a threefold purpose:
1. To honor grandparents
2. To give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children's children.
3. To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.
It is our honor to celebrate these special people in our lives on this day.
