Lincoln School in Westfield held a Grandparents & Special Persons Day on Jan. 27 to honor and entertain those with a special place in the hearts of the kindergarten children. Led by music teacher Christina Toulios, the kindergarteners performed several songs including Bushel and a Peck, I'm Gonna Mail Myself to You, Hot Chocolate and A Song for Grandparents Day, which were accompanied by spirited well-rehearsed movements. 

“I'm so proud of how enthusiastically the students sang for their grandparents and special people. They were bursting at the seams with excitement to share their songs on stage,” stated Ms. Toulios. 

The guests at both the morning and afternoon events were welcomed by Lincoln School Principal Audrey Zavetz, who shared poems about grandparents as well as original thoughts expressed by the children themselves in The ABC’s of Grandma and Grandpa Lincoln School Kindergartners. Following the performance in the auditorium, the grandparents and special guests joined the kindergarten students in their classrooms.
