"You're never too old, too wacky or wild to pick up a book and read to a child"

March 2, 2017—Harmony Hill grandparents and special visitors were treated to a breakfast buffet today at the school's first grandparents day, coinciding with Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America day.

After breakfast, grandparents and special visitors accompanied their students to the classroom to engage in fun learning activities. From reading aloud and word search puzzles to making slime and tabletop games.

“We have so many adults supporting our students outside of school and wanted to acknowledge the important role they play in the education and health of our children here at Harmony Hill,” said Principal Mark Perry. “This is a way for us not only to thank them for all they do, but also celebrate the importance of these relationships and the role reading plays in strengthening bonds between family.”
