Special memories on Veteran’s Day with RSI Grandparents!

Outside the Box – Christy Johnson
Much love was shared at RSI on Veteran’s Day! Grandparents were given the opportunity to spend time at school with students! They shared some of their everyday classroom experiences. Some students performed skits and others stood in front of the class, reciting things they have learned this year in school. Students also did arts and crafts together with their grandparents! There was a special musical performance, delicious food, and a time to honor our military veterans.  The children had a wonderful time looking through books and shopping with their grandparents at the Scholastic Book Fair! A big thank you to Mark Koch for capturing so many of these beautiful moments on camera! Read More
