Grandparents Day at TRES

Thunder Ridge Elementary celebrated Grandparents on Friday Sept. 15th. Grandparents were invited to the children’s classrooms at 10:30am. The grandparents were able to see a portion of a school day and the neat, fun things the kids do at school. They also ate lunch with their grandchildren. Once the students were done with lunch they took their grandparents outside for recess and play. The children loved having these special visitors.
