You’re Invited to Ridgewood Elementary School’s Grandparents and Grandfriends Day on
Friday, September 13, 2019.
We look forward to hosting our Grandparents and Grandfriends for a day of learning!
Our event starts at 9:30am in the gym. Check in will begin at 9:00 a.m.
Guests should enter the building through the gym doors at the south end of the school (please do not enter through the front office). There will be a table there to check in and receive visitor badges.
Check in will go much faster if grandparents know their grandchildren’s teacher names (please complete below).
Parking at Ridgewood can be difficult. Please plan to carpool or drop off grandparents if possible. You may need to park in the neighborhood and walk to the school.
Please have grandparents bring a sack lunch if they would like to eat with their grandchildren.
The program concludes at the end of student lunches: 11:40 for Kinder, 11:50 for 1st grade, 12:00 for 2nd grade, 12:10 for 3rd, 12:20 for 4th and 12:30 for 5th grade.
Please call the school office at 503-356-2440 with any questions.
