C.H. Campbell Elementary School second-grade students welcomed some very special visitors to their school Nov. 12.

The students invited their grandparents to the school’s annual Grandparents Day and performed a musical program for them in the gym. The students sang songs for their grandparents and one representative from each of the four second-grade classrooms read statements from each student about how their grandparents make them feel.

“It was loving and touching,” said second-grade teacher Kristin Hartshorn.

After the program, two second-grade classes went back to their classrooms with their grandparents for a classroom presentation and to interview their grandparents. The other two classes participated in bowling in the gym with their grandparents.

At the appointed time, the classes switched places so everyone could visit the classrooms and have a chance to bowl.

In honor of Grandparents Day, the students also set up a museum containing artifacts which were used prior to 1980. Students were asked to bring in any item they wanted to display, which included an 8-track stereo and 8-track tapes, a tape recorder and cassette tapes, a video tape, a rotary phone, Atari, a record player and records, a Rubik’s Cube, bell bottoms, a Merlin toy and a viewfinder. The museum was titled ‘Museum of Life Long Ago.’
