Grandchild and grandparent look forward to a bright futureMarian Lucille Herndon McQuade envisioned three purposes for National Grandparents Day:

  • To honor grandparents;
  • To give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children; and
  • To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.

At Ferguson-Easley Elementary School we honored our grandparents on September 21st. Ms. Eloise Melvin, parent facilitator, wanted to affirm the identity and importance of grandparents.  She organized the celebration to proclaim “Looking Forward With Our Grandparents” is a vital way to show that grandparents do play a role in families and in schools.

Most people know that eating fruits and vegetables is important for good health, but most of us still aren’t getting enough. This September, let’s participate in Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vegetables and fruits can help you lower your risk for heart disease and some types of cancer, maintain or reach a healthy weight, and keep your body strong and active. Here are some ideas to help you and your family fit more fruits and vegetables into your day. Try keeping a bowl of fruit handy where the whole family can see it, cut up fruits and veggies ahead of time so they’re ready for quick, healthy snacks, and challenge your family to try a new veggie or fruit every week. Remember, eating more fruits and veggies can be fun and worth it!
