Glen View celebrates Grandparents Day

Glen View Elementary School celebrated its grandparents this week with a parade with loved ones, students and faculty.

“At Glen View the parents and grandparents of our students are greatly appreciated and we enjoy having them involved in the education of their students,” said Jordan Blachier, assistant principal at Glen View.

Kindergarten grandparents participated in the parade at 9 a.m., then first grade parents at 10 a.m. and second grade parents at 11 a.m.

“Due to COVID restrictions, our grandparents were not able to come into the school. Instead, they participated in a parade,” Blachier said. “We were so excited and proud of the turnout. We had several hundred vehicles participate throughout the three parades. Many of the grandparents decorated their cars. Some played music and some honked their horns. It was great to see how many grandparents came out. They were excited to see their students and our students were even more excited to see them. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated in our Grandparents Day Parade and for making it a huge success.”
