DSC_1004COSHOCTON – Pam Gartrell enjoyed lunch with her grandsons, Wesley and Collin Shontz on Oct. 24 at Keene Elementary. Grandparents were invited to come see the school, have lunch with their grandchildren and shop at the book fair. “I always love coming down and having lunch with them,” Gartrell said. “We go to the book fair and put orders in for Santa and I bring them a special lunch.” Principal Matt Colvin said the school had 268 people sign up for the event, which was held over two days. He was very pleased with the positive remarks he heard about the sixth graders who helped the event run smoothly. “We need to worry less about testing and more about kids leaving this building better people,” Colvin said. “If you treat the kids with care the other things will fall into place.”
