Grandparents & Special Friends
Grandparents and special friends make up an important part of PS1 Pluralistic School’s extended and multi-generational family. Grandparents and special friends are invited to attend our celebrations and performances, and encouraged to participate in the life of the school, by volunteering in the classroom or serving hot lunch, and sharing their expertise on various school committees. Our grandparents’ Memoir Writing Workshop is entering its tenth year of shared memories and experiences. On Friday mornings once a month in the Community Room, grandparents share stories that often bring laughter, wisdom and a few tears. Several books have been compiled from these tales and shared with parents and students.
At PS1 we value our multi-generational community, and the perspectives grandparents offer as they share their life experience. Whether your parents came to Grandparents Day 2017 or not, those experiences influence the learning in your child's classroom. We are grateful for the wonderful stories they shared with PS1 based on the prompts from your child's teacher, now anthologized for students to enjoy. These books will be enriching our school for many years to come.
