On Friday, February 10th, Immanuel Christian Academy hosted a program and lunch honoring the students’ grandparents. The theme of the program and lunch was “That’s Amore’,” and the classes presented a variety of poems, acrostics, Bible verses, and songs about grandparents and the love they have for these special people in their lives.
The K-3 (3 year olds) class stole the show at the very beginning, putting grins on everyone’s faces as the little ones sang, “Love Somebody, Yes, I Do.” The K-4 class shared a poem called, “That’s What Grandparents Are Made Of.” The Kindergarten class drew pictures of what they enjoy doing with their grandparents, and these pictures were displayed on PowerPoint. The children then shared with the audience what they had drawn. The children drew pictures of building tree houses, going to Dairy Queen, feeding cows, going swimming (“with everything on”), and other fun activities that had the grandparents laughing at their grandkids’ perspective. The first Graders sang a short song about grandparents, and then shared a poem that made an acrostic of the word, “grandparents.” The second and third graders presented a poem titled, “A Grandparent Just Like You.” The fourth and fifth graders shared Psalm 91, which is a psalm of great encouragement. The sixth, seventh, and eighth graders took turns sharing quotes about grandparents and portions of 1 Corinthians 13, which is known as the love chapter in the Bible. Some children drew special pictures or made projects to present to their loved ones after the program.
In keeping with the Italian theme, after the program, the children and grandparents enjoyed a delicious spaghetti luncheon and home-made desserts together. They also had the opportunity to take pictures at a photo booth. These pictures were later sent home with the children to give to their grandparents.
Immanuel Christian Academy continues to pursue educational and spiritual excellence through the prayers and support of its families and especially the grandparents. The grandparents frequently serve the students at lunch, through the Parent/Teacher Fellowship, and through their gift-giving. For example, after the Grandparents Program, several grandparents gave monetary gifts toward the construction of new classrooms that will help accomodate the continued growth of our student body.
Saying thank you to the grandparents through the program and lunch was just a small expression of the gratitude the students and faculty have for the grandparents of ICA.
