In honor of the official grandparents day on Sunday Cross Creek elementary decided to celebrate a little early.
Students spent all morning on Friday with their grandparents.
They ate breakfast together, participated in different activities.
They even got to take a trip to the book fair.
Many of the grandparents who participated said it was a great way to spend their morning.
"This is all new and I'm quite excited. I think the children get a kick out of it when they see their grandparents interact with them," said Mark Ponzillo, Caroline Knight's grandfather.
Ponzillo said they don't normally wake up that early in the morning but they did just to spend time with their granddaughter Caroline.
