Students Welcome Grandparents to CHS on Grandparents Day

Sunny skies and beautiful weather set the stage for Grandparents Day held on Sunday, March 15 from 2 í 4 p.m.  Approximately 850 grandparents and their grandsons were in attendance.

Unique to the gathering was the opportunity for current students to sit with their grandparents for the program in the gym.  Highlighting the program was a prayer service led by CHS Student Ministers, as well as stirring performances by the CHS and SJA Schola Cantorum and the CHS Jazz Ensemble.  The closing of the program featured the Armed Forces Medley recognizing veterans in attendance and all singing íÍGod Bless America.íñ

A reception, hosted by the CHS Mothersí´ Club, was held after the program in the Centennial Courtyard and the CHS Union.  The CHS Photography Club was present in the Courtyard to take memento photographs of the guests and their grandsons. Students led their grandparents on tours of the campus.  

Students submitted writings about their grandparents that were featured in the day’s program. Click here to see a comprehensive listing of all student writings.
