Washington, CT - Devereux Glenholme celebrated the value of grandparents and the amazing affect they have in the lives of their grandchildren with their Grandparent’s Day on September 18, 2009. More than thirty family members journeyed to Glenholme from all over the country to enjoy the beautiful campus and the engaging events of the day which included a musical performance preceding lunch in the dining hall; student-led tours of the campus to see classrooms, activity offerings such as the equestrian program, fitness room, go-kart track, movie theatre, drama and music, the culinary program in The Commons; and faculty presented details of Glenholme’s program offerings and the impact they have of their grandchildren.

These special individuals, grandparents and surrogate-grandparents alike, play a significant role in the lives of these young students with their devotion and support.  This generation of students will be fortunate to have the wisdom and guidance of their grandparents into their later adult years.  Grandparents set an important example for all to aspire to, as they teach, share, mentor and guide. Grandparent’s Day at Glenholme is quickly becoming a highly anticipated school tradition for our families
