Since Grandparents Day fell on Sunday, Sept 12  this year, the students at San Marcos CISD celebrated it on Sept. 10 or Sept. 13 at their schools.

The students at Crockett Elementary hosted their Grandparents Day event Monday, with more than 250 grandparents participating in the day. Some grandparents traveled from out of town to be with their grandchildren at the celebration.

A+ Federal Credit Union, the small HEB, Carino’s, Furr’s Cafeteria, Luby’s, Sam’s Club, Pappa Pasta, D’Blazio’s, Chicken Express, and Craigo’s all contributed to the celebration at Crockett. Roel Garza, the assistant manager at Furr’s, even donated his day off, volunteering his time and expertise to make sure each grandparent was served.
