Grandparent's Day Celebration
Friday, May 20th
8:00 AM

We are looking forward to bringing back our Grandparent's Day celebration this year! Grandparents are welcome to join us during our drop off hours for coffee and donuts. At 8:00 we will welcome everyone with a short prayer service and performances by our Little Knights & Kindergarten students.

After the service, students will come (one class at a time) to the multipurpose room to find their grandparents. Once they are together, our students will be able to take their grandparents on a tour of the school! They can show them their classroom, the makerspace, the Art Room, the Science Lab...all of the areas of the building they visit during the day! Teachers will be in the classrooms waiting to meet our grandparents!

We look forward to seeing you!
