During one very exciting day every school year, the students of Hillsdale Christian Academy get to bring some special guests to school: their grandparents! Today, February 9th, Hillsdale Christian Academy will host its annual Grandparent’s Day. The day also kicks off the annual Scholastic Book Fair.
It’s a special time for students to share with their grandparents and loved ones.
The school day begins with coffee and refreshments for the grandparents. Then they get to watch their grandchildren perform during a school-wide program. After the performance, grandparents will meet up with their grandchildren and follow them back to their classroom. Students have fun seeing their grandparents sitting right next to them and being in the classroom. Each teacher prepares a special lesson or activity for Grandparent’s Day.
Then, after the mid-morning lesson, students and grandparents are free to peruse the Scholastic Book Fair! Our Tampa book fair is a fantastic environment for everyone to enjoy some fresh books and find something new, and spend more time together. Students and Grandparents are welcome to be dismissed at any time, and after-school care is provided for students who will stay at Hillsdale for the remainder of the school day. Grandparent’s Day is a joyful, laid back time that is the perfect way to celebrate the gift of family.
Book Fair: February 9-16
Grandparents Day is on February 9th, but our Tampa book fair lasts from February 9th to February 16th. It’s open to the community! All are welcome to our Christian school near Westchase for the book fair. It opens each day at 8:00am and will not close until 6:00pm. Cash, check, or credit card are all acceptable forms of payment. Come and enjoy the quality and well-loved books that Scholastic has to offer!
Parents are more than welcome to come during the school day or to stay after the school day and check out the book fair with their students. There are tons of titles and something for everyone. Books are such a special treasure to the growth and nurture of a child’s education. Hillsdale Christian Academy is delighted to provide an avenue to the discovery of new, old, and wonderful books.
