​Grandparents use clickers to answer Spanish questions.
Grandparents’ Day at Deerfield High School was a huge success this year thanks to a massive turnout.
 
 
Almost 250 grandparents joined 140 senior students at school on November 20th to get an inside look at what high school life is like.
 
The day kicked off with a reception in the cafeteria for students and their grandparents. Grandparents then followed their grandchildren to several classes.
 
DHS Spanish teacher Ryan Rockaitis put his students’ grandparents to the test by making them answer Spanish questions using a classroom clicker. One question revolved around how many text messages grandparents had sent or received in the past 24 hours. Grandparents responded by punching their answers into clickers that instantaneously formulated the data and created a graph that the classroom could analyze. The goal was to show grandparents the different kinds of ways technology is being used in the classroom.
 
Grandparents’ Day ended with a special Fine Arts performance.
