Grandparent’s Day at Mattaponi Elementary

Many thanks to the grandparents who visited our school on Friday, April 11th.  Our grandparents shared stories with our students, participated in class projects, and had the opportunity to see their grandchild(ren) at work in their classrooms.  A great big hug to all our wonderful volunteers and to our parents who donated treats for this extraordinary tribute to Grandparents!!!
