Friday, September 15, 2023 is our special Grandparents’ Day Luncheon and Chapel Service. We look forward to this opportunity to honor our grandparents and highlight our students in this special chapel service. Make sure you let your children's grandparents know that they are invited to join us for a day of honoring and celebrating them!
Check In: All grandparents will check in at the office and we will call the grandchildren to come up and greet them and take them back to the classroom or to the cafeteria to join them for the activities of the day. Our Student Government Officers will be also be assisting with the day. Please be sure grandparents bring their valid IDs so that we can scan them into the Raptor Visitor Management System.
Lunch Menu: Lunch for grandparents is complimentary!
10:45 – 11:45 – Our K-5th graders will eat lunch and have recess. Grandparents may come anytime between 10:40 and 11:05 to connect with their elementary aged grandchildren and eat lunch with them. After lunch, grandparents may accompany their grandchildren to recess and back to the class to see their classrooms and meet their teacher and classmates before accompanying them to chapel.
12:10 - 12:55 – Our 6th-12th graders will eat lunch. Grandparents may come anytime between 12:05 and 12:55 to connect with their middle and high school aged grandchildren and eat lunch with them. After lunch, grandparents may accompany their grandchildren to chapel. If a grandparent has grandchildren in multiple grades, they are welcome to stay through all appropriate lunch times.
1:00 – 1:50 – K-12 Special Grandparents’ Day Chapel – This special chapel will be student led. Our Student Government Officers will be the masters/mistresses of ceremony and our elementary classes will each share something special that they have prepared to honor grandparents.
When you enter the chapel, the auditorium will have sections marked off by grade level. Please have grandparents sit with their child’s designated grade. There will be a section marked off for grandparents with children in multiple grades to sit together as a family.
Dress Code: Friday is our “jeans day” for teachers, so please let your grandparents know that dress is casual.
RSVP: Please (540-868-1231) or email (email@example.com) the office to let us know how many will be attending.
If your child does not have a grandparent in the area, you as parents are welcome to join them for the event or to invite someone to come as your child’s guest. But, if no one is able to come, please know that there will be many students without grandparents or parents here and the classroom teachers will make sure that they are well taken care of. We may “buddy up” some with a friend who has a grandparent guest here.
Again, we look forward to this opportunity to honor our grandparents and highlight our students in this special chapel service. Hope to see you then!
