They hold a deeply valued place in your child’s life and add vibrancy to our school’s DNA. Whether they are a grandparent, relative, caregiver, friend or neighbor, a Grandfriend plays a significant role in your family, and shares their time, love and support with your child.

FAQs

  • Can my child have more than one Grandfriend with them that day? Please limit Grandfriend invitees to two per student due to our limited space.
  • We have one Grandfriend, but more than one child – how do we handle that? Grandfriends may split their time between children.
  • We don’t have someone who can be there that day, can we as parents attend? In Pre-Primary classes, parents may attend the classroom visit. The brunch is specifically for Grandfriends. We encourage Grandfriends who cannot attend, to either write a note or email to advancement@blueschool.org with a message we could share with your child that day.
  • My Grandfriend Gathering is on a different day than the brunch -- may I still attend? Yes, we would love for you to attend brunch. Please note, only Grandfriends will be in attendance.
  • Will my child's Grandfriend be asked for a donation during brunch? No, but we will have a display in the lobby about the Annual Fund, as we do every year and there will be information about supporting the school handed out as the Grandfriends leave.
