We are preparing for a special day this fall! Each student will have the opportunity to invite his or her grandparents* to visit St. Hilary School on Friday, October 5 for our Grandparents’ Day!
The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 10:30 a.m. Planned activities include a continental breakfast for students and their grandparents from 8:00 to 8:30 a.m., an opportunity for grandparents to spend time visiting with grandchildren in their classrooms until 9:15 a.m., and school Mass at 9:30 a.m. at which grandparents will sit with their grandchildren. Grandparents and grandchildren should plan to arrive at school together on this morning, or designate a place to meet.
Please complete the information below so we know how many grandparents to expect from your family. Please be sure to indicate any special accommodations that may be required. And don’t forget to have your children call their grandparents to invite them! (Separate invitations will not be mailed.) Information grandparents will need to know is printed on the back of this form.
Please return this information to school in an envelope marked “Grandparents’ Day” no later than September 10. Thank you for helping us to make this a special day for your child and his or her guest!
*If grandparents are not available to attend, please feel free to invite another special person in your child’s life.
