Xavier Hosts Grandparents, 'Grandfriends' Day


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) 350 senior citizens turned out at Xavier Charter School for Grandparents Day. It was a chance for the students there to interact with older people, and tap the seniors' wisdom.

After a school assembly and some refreshments, the grandparents spent time in the classrooms answering questions about their own school years.

Becky Baird, lead teacher for the grammar school at Xavier, says, "We want them to connect with our kids, but we also want them to know that they are so valuable to their grandchildren, and in particularly their grandchildren at our school."

Baird says she hopes many of these seniors will become more involved in Xavier's activities and processes.
