Grandparents have their day at Peabody

Students at Peabody Elementary School invited their grandparents to have lunch in the cafeteria with them. After lunch, the grandparents spent time in the classroom working on a special craft for Grandparents’ Day, which was celebrated Sunday. Landry Flaming,  fourth grader, works with his grandmother, Margaret Flaming, on making a little scarecrow hangar. Reagan Rives, right, shows her grandmother, June Rives of Wichita, the craft they are making, and Kyle Edwards, left, is also helping with the project. June Rives said she and husband Rick moved from Layton, Utah, to Wichita. “We are amazed at the Peabody School District,” June Rives said. “We come from such big schools out there, which are wonderful, but we are very impressed with Peabody. It’s amazing how the town comes out for every activity.” Another newcomer to Peabody was fourth grader Padme Bella Wigton, who said she lived in New York, then Arizona and now here. The idea of celebrating Grandparents’ Day started in the 1990s.
