Lower School to Present Grandparents' Day 2024

Friday, March 1

We are looking forward to our upcoming Grandparents’ Day to be held Friday, March 1, 2024! This year’s Grandparents’ Day will begin at 10 am with “Creation Sings,” a special performance by our Lower School students in the Gymnatorium. We are excited for grandparents to be able to come on campus to be with their grandchildren.


Following the program, families are invited to the Quad for outdoor activities and refreshments with their grandchildren. This year’s Grandparents’ Day will include a new event -- an Art Show featuring works of art from all of our Lower School students. The framed artwork on display will be available for purchase. The Book Fair will be open in the Recital Hall, and the Spirit Shop will be open in the Gymnatorium.


Once families have spent time together on campus, students are dismissed to go home with their family. Grandparents’ Day is a half-day of school for all students grades Pre K-12. Buses will run at noon dismissal time. Please note that our After School Program is not available on days of noon dismissal.


Attached to this email, you will find an invitation to our upcoming Grandparents’ Day. Email, text or print to mail to grandparents or special friends.
