It was the “happiest day of the year” on Tuesday, October 5 at Forman School’s annual Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day! Read below to find out why.
1. On Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day, happiness is everywhere.
Over 130 grandparents and specials friends from all over the country (and the world!) reunited with their grandchildren for the first time since school started. Everywhere on campus, students and their guests could be seen smiling and hugging. There were even a few happy tears shed.
2. Our guests were dazzled by unique, entertaining musical performances.
Music Teacher Jerrod Cattey and his Vocal Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, and individual solo musicians worked tirelessly to present a short concert performed by the students.
3. The weather was gorgeous!
We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful fall day in Connecticut, and the Green was alive with people chatting and taking in some sun. The community enjoyed athletic games on both the fields and in the gym.
4. There were adorable dogs!
Not only did several of our visitors bring their furry pals, but the Bartletts, a faculty family, carried out their weeks-old Labrador puppies to the delight of grandparents and students alike.
5. Grandparents got to be “students for the day.”
Classroom visits were a big hit and many grandparents were active participants in class discussions. Forman students proudly showed off what they have been working on so far this year in courses such as Robotics, Music, English, and Ingenuity.
Thank you to everyone for bringing so much joy to our campus today. We hope you come back again soon!
