The Schoolfield Elementary cafeteria was packed with GRANDPARENTS! Schoolfield held their annual Grandparent's Day celebrations on September 5th and 6th. Grandparents were welcomed to come and have light refreshments with their grandchild and participate in a fun skills based activity.

The guest speaker was Ms. Constance Covington, the Director of the Constance “Grandma” Covington Youth Center at Cardinal Village. She spoke on the topic of How Grandparents Can Become Involved in Grandchildren’s Education. Danville City Mayor, Alonzo Jones , also spoke to the grandparents about how they can positively impact their grandchildren’s academics and be their role models.
