GRANDPARENTS DAY WAS A ROYAL TREAT!
Our annual K2-5th Grade Grandparents Day was awesome!  It continues to get bigger and better every year. The special musical presentation by our students is always a highlight of the day and the K3-K5 Krewe of Kindergarteners parade is the best Mardi Gras parade around (just ask any K3-K5 parent or grandparent)! Special thanks to all of our parents who helped with the reception, the Middle and Upper School band who lead and followed our awesome marshalls (K3) band members (K4) and beautiful floats (K5), and of course to all of our Wildcat grandparents who came and joined us for the day!  WE LOVE YOU!
