G.R. Hampton was host to extraordinary visitors on Monday, September 9, as grandparents and other family members were invited to have breakfast with their child. While the gravy might not have tasted like grandma’s, the foodservice staff did not disappoint the 78 adults and their children who took part in the event.

After breakfast, families were able to visit the school’s book fair as school staff emphasized the importance of reading.

"Events like our gravy breakfast with relatives is one way that we bring families into the school," explained public relations director Frank Shelton. 

"Families play an important role at home and in our schools.  Breakfast events, ball games, open house, and volunteering brings the school community together."
