Grandparents are the special guests today at Snohomish County Christian School in Lynnwood.
They will attend a physical education class, as well as learn about computers and music appreciation.
Of course, they also will go to recess.
Awards will be given to the grandparents who have traveled the farthest, have the most grandchildren, and the oldest and the youngest grandparents.
Each grandchild is packing a picnic lunch to share.
The Kiwanis Club of Monroe, along with the Tualco Grange, the Monroe High School Key Club and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (St. Mary of the Valley Conference), brought in cash and food donations worth a total of $5,000 during their spring food drive.
Donations benefit the Sky Valley Food Bank in Monroe.
