Russell Elementary celebrated Grandparents Day on Friday, Sept. 12.
Grandparents and "grandfriends" were invited to the elementary school. A student shared the history of Grandparents' Day and a teacher, Paula Lockhart, presented the National Grandparents' Day proclamation.
During the day, the school held several activities, including a best hat contest, a basketball shoot and a balloon bust.
The grandparents were also invited to tour the school and eat lunch with the students.
