RES Loves OUR Grandparents!

ringgold elementary grandparents day

On October 3, 2014, Ringgold Elementary School third grade students welcomed their grandparents to their school.  They introduced them to their teachers, shared their artwork and class work, and then they enjoyed a delicious lunch together in the school cafeteria.  Before leaving, students toured the school with their grandparents, had their picture made, and visited the book fair.  At RES, grandparents are a treasure, and we were thrilled to have such a huge crowd spend the morning and afternoon with us!
