Good turnout for 'grandparents day' at Arbor Heights school
About 80 grandparents attended Arbor Heights Elementary School's annual "grandparents day" May 8, said principal Carol Coram.
"We had a little reception where grandparents signed in with coffee, juice, and doughnuts, and the grandparents and their grandkids got matching name tags," she said.
"I want to be either a doctor or soccer player when I grow up," said Noah Webster, while his grandmother Glenda Daniel helped him write a paper on a bread recipe in Janet Feagan's second grade class.
"I attended Arbor Heights School and my mother, Pauline Dudley, taught first grade here," said Karen Lavallee, managing broker at Windermere in the Junction.
"She still lives in Arbor Heights. "
Lavallee was visiting her grandson Conner Roed who now attends.
"It's just fun to come and see the school again, and how much the kids are learning," she said. "I'm involved with my grandkids' lives a lot. I have four grandchildren here in West Seattle. So I have softball on Saturdays and soccer on Sundays."
