Does your child's school have a "Grandparents day"?
My kids' schools both do and I honestly find it wrong on so many levels. Not every child has a grandparent to attend the events. Now they claim not every child has a parent but at the same time, who ever has custody of the child is welcomed to attend any event where a parent would attend BUT parents are not welcomed to attend "Grandparents day", so if your child doesn't have a grandparent they are left out. One of the schools is Catholic, so they celebrate every Catholic Holiday and Mardi Gras plus Grandparents and God parents day (both which I hate but they give kids without grandparents another fun activity like pizza and a movie). The other is a Charter school that claims they claim they don't celebrate basically anything because it MIGHT be offensive to someone, so how is it that "Grandparents day" is any different? How about they send home a survey with the "holidays" of each month and ask the parents what they find offensive and go from there? Today was Grandparents day at the charter school, my kid has been crying for 3 days because he didn't have anyone to go with him. This morning, we had quite a few kids crying because they didn't have a grandparent attending. How is this "fair" for the kids? I know 2 kids whose mother is out of town working BUT Grandma goes to every activity, including this one. So the whole "some kids don't have a mom or a dad" is invalid because they have a guardian who is allowed to any activity a parent would be allowed.
