SKS has been an integral part of providing our students a kind, caring and safe environment within our school. Baking cookies, playing cards, or just sitting and chatting with their school grandparents every week is quite often the highlight of our student’s week. Thank you for this wonderful program.
The Grandparent program is a blessing.
Our students show more confidence, empathy and compassion from this intergenerational program.
We have seen so many amazing connections between our students and local seniors through this program! Our students gain confidence, leadership skills and most of all build life-long skills and friendships through this partnership. Thank you!
I was asked how old I was. When I replied that I was “72” a look of awe was seen on my school grandchild’s face. He replied with a “That’s so cool!”
I have enjoyed “giving back” to my community. My grandchildren live in another country and I look forward to my weekly visits at the school with my students and meeting other seniors in rocky view.
My daughter’s school attendance has greatly improved. She never misses school on “Grandparent Day”.
Our daughter enjoys cooking and baking day with her school Grandparent. She enjoyed learning to play marbles, candle making and talking to her mentor every week.
