Educating the whole child and honoring the diversity of each individual from
Pre-elementary (age 3) through Grade 8.

Each year we set aside the Tuesday before Thanksgiving to honor and celebrate the special relationship between our students and their grandparents/grand friends. We recognize that not everyone has a grandparent close by and this is why we include grand friends. If your child's grandparents cannot attend, please invite someone special in your child's life such as an uncle, aunt, neighbor or family friend. This special time holds a morning filled with classroom activities and learning that provides grandparents/grand friends with a glimpse into your child's daily life at school. In addition, professional photographer, Tricia Enfield, is taking portrait photos to commemorate the day.
