HISD Nutrition Services is set to host its annual Grandparents Day celebration on Thursday, Sept 13 to honor all grandparents districtwide.
Grandparents Day, recognized the Sunday after Labor Day, is a national holiday that recognizes the important role grandparents play in the lives of their grandchildren.
Students are encouraged to ask their grandparents to join them for a special lunch served by school cafeterias to commemorate the day.
Each year, thousands of grandparents of HISD students participate in the observance. Students often use the special time with their grandparents to introduce them to friends, teachers, and their school community.
