Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Grandparents are valued members of our SJE community and enhance our students’ lives and their experiences. Therefore, Grandparents & Special Friends Day, is held each year to honor them. The day provides an opportunity for grandparents and their grandchildren to spend time together, with a morning of classroom visits, hands-on activities, and breakfast. Students who don’t have a grandparent able to attend are welcome to invite anyone they have a close relationship with: an aunt, uncle, godparent, family friend, or grown sibling.
