Grandparents help celebrate Lutheran Schools Week
Friday, March 11, 2011
Cole Oxley enjoyed a day with grandparents — not only both of his grandparents, but also the ancestors of many of his peers at Calvary Lutheran High School.
The parochial school observed chapel Wednesday morning as it has weekly for six years.
But this was the first time to invite guests to sit in with them as recognition of Lutheran Schools Week.
Although students and faculty still are settling in to their new, permanent facility, which they moved into late last year, they enjoyed filling the naturally lit commons area for the reflection time.
Oxley coordinated Grandparents Day, which also allowed the visitors to sit in the classrooms with their students.
“A lot of grandparents have not seen the new building yet,” Oxley said.
Without the new building, there wouldn’t have been room for a couple dozen visitors in the classrooms.
“This is the first time we’ve been in the building since it was finished; it’s very beautiful,” said Oxley’s grandmother Doris Propst.
