photo of Councilman McDougald addressing parentsWestarea Elementary celebrated Grandparent’s Day. Research shows how important family involvement is in helping students to learn and to develop into healthy young people.  Both of the student performances entertained and inspired all the grandparents who came.  Councilman Chalmers McDougald encouraged the audience to share their wisdom with their grandchildren.  He also cited the importance of getting students to school on time.  His humorous references to his own efforts to assist his grandchildren with their homework resonated with the audience.  In her closing remarks, Dr. Backman, Westarea Elementary principal, said that the Westarea staff can’t be as effective in preparing students for the future without family support.  Following the program, grandparents visited the classrooms.
