Grandparents Day Brings Families Together with Onstage Performances and Classroom Visits
Every Thursday before Easter, Liberty Christian School hosts Grandparents Day that welcomes nearly 800 grandparents to campus every year.
On March 29, grandparents arrived that morning for breakfast and then an onstage performance, “Royal Celebration,” that featured their grandchildren from preschool to fifth grade in their costumes singing, acting and playing in the band.
Afterward, grandparents visited their grandchildren’s classrooms to see what their grandchildren have learned this school year. Many children made special cards and works of art for their grandparents as well.
For weeks, students rehearsed “royal” songs and skits to honor their special guests.

Students Serve at School and in the Community on Missions Day
On March 29, Middle School students helped at Liberty’s Grandparents Day and one group of Upper School students served at Flower Mound’s Food for the Soul, while the other at Frisco Family Services.
With nearly 800 grandparents coming to Liberty that day to see their preschool to fifth-grade grandchildren perform onstage, Middle School students assisted by organizing and picking up the Stage Area and cafeteria that had transformed to an auditorium earlier in the day.
At Frisco Family Services, Upper School students sorted and counted inventory at its food bank and thrift store. The organization provides meals, clothing, household goods, shoes, school supplies and adult life-skill classes to Frisco and the surrounding communities.
Another group of Upper School students helped Food for the Soul prepare and pack meals and snacks for students on a lunch program from a local school district. The mission of this nonprofit is to fight childhood hunger through its backpack program and meals provided to student athletes before games and to children who may go hungry on the weekends.
