On November 20, 2019, JPII hosted its 12th annual Grandparents’ Breakfast in the main gym. The very first Grandparents Breakfast was held on December 6, 2006. This breakfast is held every year to thank the grandparents of JPII students for everything that they have done for us over the years, and it includes a performance from JPII’s choirs and a capella group. 

Normally, the school puts together a buffet style breakfast with coffee, juice, water, eggs, bacon, and all the traditional breakfast foods that one could think of. However, this year, JPII did something that no one expected. The school put on a gigantic feast for the grandparents to truly show just how much we care about them and how thankful we are.

As a token of appreciation, the school gave each grandparent a coffee mug and a free pen. Students were able to videotape a “Thank You” message to their grandparents, which were put together into one big production and shown during the breakfast.

Every year, the breakfast seems to get better and bigger. This year, there were over 600 people that showed up. Hopefully, even more people will be able to attend next year.

One student said, “I was happy to find out that my grandparents could make it, and I’m very thankful for all they have done for me.” Another student said, “In my four years attending the breakfast, this one was by far the best.“
