On Thursday, May 8, Bethlehem Catholic High School will host more than 150 grandparents of students for its third annual Grandparents Day on the school’s Bethlehem campus. Students will meet their grandparents and join them for Mass in the school’s auditorium at 8:20 a.m. where Bishop John Barres will be the celebrant, followed by a continental breakfast in the cafeteria.
Students will have the chance to escort grandparents on school tours. Grandparents will be treated to special giveaways and prize drawings. This event gives students the opportunity to connect with their grandparents while showing pride in their school.
According to John P. Petruzzelli, Bethlehem Catholic Principal, “We started Grandparents Day a few years ago at the suggestion of one of our advancement committee members. It was successful beyond our expectation and we knew we had to make it a BECA tradition. The students are as excited as their grandparents for the visit. They’re proud of their school and look forward to showing it off. It’s an uplifting day all around.”
