In the years since Jimmy Carter first declared Grandparents Day a national holiday in 1978, Erie Day School has been following his call to reflect on the impact grandparents have on our students' lives. In that spirit, Erie Day School celebrates ‘the grands’ on Friday, November 2nd. Carter wrote that because grandparents "are usually free to love and guide and befriend the young without having to take daily responsibility for them, they can often reach out past pride and fear of failure and close the space between generations. Grandparents are our continuing tie to the near-past, to the events and beliefs and experiences that so strongly affect our lives and the world around us." We couldn’t agree more!
