Grandparents Treated to a Day at Lake Country Academy
The halls and classrooms were full of smiles, laughter, and pride as over 300 grandparents and special adults attended Lake Country Academy’s annual Grandparents Day on Friday, October 21, 2011. The students had the opportunity to show off their academic talents, work and classrooms to their grandparents. Teachers involved both students and grandparents in classroom activities for the day. Kindergarteners showed off their math skills to their grandparents, while third graders demonstrated their grammar abilities. In the middle school, students and grandparents interviewed each other and compared their answers.
The morning culminated with a Core Virtue program where grandparents were treated with a presentation about diversity, which included students reading essays they wrote and the student body singing, "It's a Small World." Many grandparents came to talk about their gratitude to the Principal Mrs. Carla Koepp for giving them such a wonderful opportunity to bond with their grandchildren and praise the school for the work the staff is doing for their grandchildren. Located in Sheboygan, Lake Country Academy blends Direct Instruction and Core Knowledge to support high academic standards for their Pre-K-8 grade students.
