Northport K-8 School celebrated Grandparents Day recently with a grand flair and style! Hundreds of grandparents and extended family members celebrated their children and the community efforts of the school by visiting the cafeteria and courtyard and lunching, picnic style. Culinary Arts instructor, Rachel Ellsworth and her students prepared a wonderful salad bar and sweet treats for grandparents to enjoy. The camaraderie and joy was evident and the school was thrilled to host the magnificent opportunity to remember grandparents.

Special thanks to Mrs. Ellsworth, the PTO, kitchen staff and all who helped make the day a joyful one! Northport, a well-rounded community school, offers their families many opportunities to get involved and recognizes that to improve student achievement we must depend on the success of the family connection.
