Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Please join us on 9/18 for the first elementary Grandparents and Special Friends Day at Washington School! Visit our website for more information and a list of restaurants donating a percentage of lunch sales to the school. This is a half day for students, and you may take grandchildren with you at 11:00 am.

I would like to attend Grandparents and Special Friends Day, what do I need to do?

Please fill out your information at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WSgrandparents so we can send information to you! You do not have to register to attend, but we will send out updates so you can stay informed.

I understand Grandparent, but what constitutes a Special Friend?

Anyone old enough to drive themselves to the event, and not currently a parent at WS, is eligible to be a special friend.

How many guests can my child bring?

Grandparents and Special Friends Day is so much fun your child may want to bring the whole neighborhood! If you can limit your guests to four, we would appreciate it!

What if my child doesn’t have a Grandparent or Special Friend available to attend?

We want to be sure that all students have the opportunity to enjoy this special day! If your child does not have a grandparent or special friend who is able to attend this event, please let their teacher know. Your child will be paired with a special friend from WS! Another fun option is pairing with a classmate to share a special friend for the day!

Is lunch provided?

Any child who has a grandparent or special friend attend can leave at 11 am to eat lunch with them! Several of our local restaurants are donating money to the school if you dine with them! We encourage you to support ALL local restaurants, but the following are providing a donation to Washington School when you dine with them on Grandparents and Special Friends Day: Sherman’s, Scoops.

What time should we plan to arrive at WS? What time is the day finished?

Our assembly will begin at 9:30 in Sykes Hall. We will have coffee and breakfast beginning at 9:00. We will have a check-in table for all grandparents so please arrive in time to check in and get a name tag!

I’m a WS parent. How can I see the student performance?

Grandparents and Special Friends Day is especially for our children and their guests. There simply is not enough room in the school buildings for all of our guests AND our parents. We hope you understand and will let grandparents and special friends enjoy this opportunity at Washington School!

Will the assembly be recorded so I can watch even if I cannot attend?

Yes! We will record and post on our YouTube channel.
