Talk about a par-tea!
Kids and grandparents bonded over tea and crumpets at St. Anselm Catholic Academy’s Junior-Senior Tea on Feb. 4. The tykes had a ball hanging out with their elders, and a few adopted new grandparents along the way, one partier said.
“The tea party was great — the kids enjoyed it,” said Jenny Frka, who accompanied 4-year-old Alexendria Sullenger because the youngster’s grandparents couldn’t make it. “They needed grandparents — of course not every grandparent was able to make it. Most of the kids in the class whose grandparents could not come, they made cards for me.”
The Bay Ridge parochial school hosted the shindig as part of Catholic Schools Week, which kicked off Jan. 31.
One student particularly enjoyed performing a song for her forbearers, a parent said.
“Lina’s favorite part, of course, was when her grandmother showed up and then the singing — when they sang the song for their grandparents,” said mom Maria Stagnitta.
