The students and faculty of St. Theresa School in Palatine with the help of the Parents Association celebrated Grandparents Day.

With standing room only, over 400 grandparents sat beside their grandchildren during a special Mass dedicated for them. Students were excited to show their grandparents their classrooms and introduce them to their teachers. Refreshments were provided by the Parents Association.

"Grandparents play an important part in our children’s lives, which is why we enjoy hosting a day dedicated to just for them," said Trisha Abbey, parent of Lilly, 4th grade and PA president.
