We look forward to welcoming the grandparents and special friends of our students this Friday!


Schedule for Friday Morning

Grandparents who signed up to visit a classroom from 9:00 am - 9:45 a.m. should arrive before 9 a.m. to get settled. Thank you for understanding that this morning visit is for adults only and visitors need to choose and remain in one class for their visit. Please call Deana at 654-6003, ext. 309 to schedule a classroom visit, to RSVP for the assembly, or to let us know if you have any questions.


A reception will be held in the foyer at 9:45 a.m., with delicious food and drink for our visitors. The reception will be followed at 10:30 a.m. by a special assembly, with music, poetry, and other offerings from the 1st through 8th grades, to provide our guests with a glimpse of the children's work and how the curriculum progresses through the grades.


Will Your Child/Children Go Home Early on This Day?

It is often the case that children wish to leave school early on this day to spend more time with grandparents and special friends.


Parents, please provide written permission or contact the main office (choose option #7 from the telephone menu) to let us know that grandparents or special friends may sign out children on this day, just as you would if pick-up arrangements are different than your usual arrangements on other days. Thank you!


Assembly Is for Parents Too! (RSVP Requested)

Parents are welcome to join us for the reception at 9:45 a.m. and the assembly at 10:30 a.m. The assembly is held in recognition of our grandparents and special friends, and parents are always invited. Given the high attendance, it is helpful if you let the office know that you are planning to join us; this helps us arrange the proper number of chairs and seating in general, and we want you to be comfortable!
