American School Marks Grandparents’ Day and Patriot Day

This Sunday is a special day on the calendar for two very different reasons.  The first Sunday after Labor Day each year is Grandparents' Day, and we're grateful for the support grandparents give their grandchildren as they work toward a correspondence high school diploma or a diploma comprised of accredited online high school courses.  It's also not uncommon for grandparents themselves to earn a high school diploma at home with us if they have not completed grades 9-12 previously.  This year the first Sunday after Labor Day falls on September 11, and that day has been known as Patriot Day since the events of September 11, 2001.  We pause to reflect on the events of September 11, 2001, remember the lives lost that day and the sacrifices people continue to make as a result of that day.  No matter how you choose to commemorate one or both of the events described in this blog, we are grateful for your readership of this blog and hope you will return on Monday for our next post.
