Grandparents & Special Friends Day is  Tuesday, November 21 from 8:30-11:00am

Email invitations went out last week for this very special family event at school the morning before Thanksgiving Break. Dedicated to our Roycemore Grandparents and Special Friends, the morning will include delicious treats and coffee, musical performances featuring all grades, and special time in the classroom!

If your child's grandparent or a special family friend would like to attend and did not receive an invitation, please feel free to share the online RSVP link here, or you may contact Sara Keely McGuire at smcguire@roycemoreschool.org.

We look forward to seeing them!
