Mark Your Calendars for Grandparents Luncheons!

We will host our annual Grandparents Luncheon on the following dates:

  • November 18 Grades K, 2 and 3
  • November 19 Grades 1, 4 and 5

Please note that lunch times will be different on your child's grandparents lunch day and the teacher will communicate the time for lunch with you. Guests must come on the designated date for your child's grade level. Students will eat in the classroom on the other day so guests must come on the assigned date for that grade level. We look forward to having all of our guests to join us for this special event!
