Grandparents Week


Switzerland County Elementary School has such a positive turnout for its annual Grandparents Day – that it had to become an entire week. Principal Elizabeth Jones said that the school averaged about 100 grandparents per day during the week, as they came and enjoyed lunch with their grandchildren. Shown here enjoying lunch are, from left: Second grader Bradley Koons and kindergartner Gabrielle Koons with their grandmother, Mary Byrd; and third grader Austin Singleton with his grandmother, Sandy Simon.
