A Grandview student shows her “grand” guest the items on her wish list at the book fair. Not only was the event an opportunity for students to show their guests around their school, but it also allowed for a day full for excitement in literacy.

On Friday, March 23, Grandview Elementary School students were encouraged to invite “someone grand” to have lunch with them and shop the Paws for Books Book Fair for Grandview’s first annual “Lunch with Someone Grand” family involvement event.

The school considered it a success with over 200 family members in attendance from pre-K through eighth grade. While the lines were long, the smiles were big. Students eagerly welcomed their “grand” guests to enjoy lunch in the school’s cafeteria then to shop the book fair.

Clifford the Big Red Dog was also present to greet and interact with students and their families.

Due to the excitement surrounding this year’s event has Grandview administration is already planning for next year.

Grandview Elementary is located at 2891 Highway 11E, Telford.
