Grandparent's Day - September 9

Mott Elementary welcomes grandparents to join us for lunch on this day! Lunch schedules can be found here: Lunch Schedule You are welcome to either purchase a lunch from the cafeteria, or bring a lunch.


Method for finding your grandchild: After you sign in in the front or back entrance of the building, you will go to the cafeteria and find a seat. The teacher will bring the class into the cafeteria. When you see your grandchild, stand up and wave vigorously. The teacher will send your grandchild to you.


FYI - the Book Fair will be open in the library on this day. Please feel free to take your grandchild to the library after lunch.
