This was our 5th year to celebrate Grandparents/Grandfriends Day, and we enjoyed our biggest crowd yet with over 450 students and grandparents. At St. Ambrose the teachers and parents understand the importance of these wonderful people in our lives and know how much they have to offer our young children. We have seen our students feel a sense of pride and accomplishment as they tour their grandparent/grandfriend around their school and sit with them at breakfast and Mass. The Junior High Choir sings before Mass begins, and there are photo opportunities with their grandparents/grandfriends. This event has become a favorite among teachers, staff and students. We look forward to hosting this special event again this coming school year on September 9, 2016. Please watch for more information to come.
