Grandparents & Poetry Celebration
Grandparents and poems were celebrated at Nine Mile Falls Elementary School during its Fifth Annual Grandparents Poetry Day on Friday, September 29. The event started in the gym with Principal Keith Browning welcoming everyone. He encouraged the crowd to not only visit their grandchild's classroom to hear the poems, but to stay and listen to others as the kids had worked very hard on the poems.Classrooms were jam-packed and students beamed with pride as they read their poems to adults. "It's so good for the grandparents to come visit thier grandkids classroom and to see their school work," shared foruth grade teacher Ms. Dawn Toelken. "They both get so excited." What a special way to celebrate grandparents and to encourage young writers!
