Goin’ to Goessel for Grandparents Day

Students in Barb Goering’s first-grade class at Goessel Elementary School hosted their grandparents Thursday morning for a few hours of food and fun during GES’s Grandparents Days last week. Each class invited its grandparents to come for a visit during a different day thoughout the week. Of Goering’s 16 students, 11 had at least one grandparent come for the visit, while the rest adopted one of the attending grandparents for the day.
