Knights Welcome Visitors for Grandparents Day
St. Joseph’s welcomed more than 230 guests for Grandparents Day during November. The annual celebration has become one of the largest events held on campus each year and is a wonderful highlight in the community life of the school.
This year, the morning began with an invitation for grandparents to arrive early if they wished for a special mass with chaplain Fr. Jonathan Duncan. Immediately following, grandparents were welcomed to the beautifully transformed gymnasium for beverages and a welcome from Headmaster Keith Kiser, and the Heads of the Middle and High Schools, Dr. Steven Jones and Mrs. Wanda Jaraczewski. SJCS grandparent and frequent visitor John Hoffman also spoke about his family’s experience at St. Joe’s and shared about the importance of supporting the school.
The students arrived in the gym to visit and had the opportunity to take their grandparents on school tours if they wished, as well as a chance to have their picture taken together. Lunch followed, served by many wonderful parent volunteers, along with a student musical program.
Thank you to all the grandparents for joining us on this wonderful day, and to the many hands that made it possible!
