grandparents day

Bethany Christian School held a special Grandparents and Special Friends Day on November 19.  The purpose of the event was to honor and give thanks to our students’ grandparents and special friends for the important role they play in their lives.  Over 200 guests traveled from as far as Boston, MA and Miami, FL to attend the event.  The morning began with Bethany’s unique “Morning Muster” at which the entire school gathered to pledge allegiance to our country and our faith, and listen to a performance by Bethany Lions Choir.  This was followed by breakfast in the courtyard with photo booth opportunities and then a program in the gym in which all of the Bethany classes performed numbers to honor their guests.  Students were then dismissed to pray with their grandparents and show them their classrooms.  As a special feature, many Sierra Madre restaurants offered special discounts so that grandparents could take their grandchildren out to lunch in town following the event.  These restaurants included The Only Place in Town, Casa Del Ray, Corfu, Lemon Zest, Lucky Baldwin’s and Mother Moo Creamery.  Thank you to all our guests who came to visit our school.  We appreciate you!
