Our students and staff at the South Lewis Middle School are preparing to host the annual Grandparent’s Day Program on Friday, October 25, 2019 from 1:15 p.m. until 2:25 p.m. We would like to take this opportunity to invite the grandparent(s) of your child(ren) to participate in this exciting opportunity. In the event that a grandparent is not able to attend the program, please feel free to invite another close senior relative. Grandparents/attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about our school by accompanying your child(ren) to a classroom activity and a reception. The following is our program schedule:
1:00 pm - Grandparents arrive and report to the auditorium
1:15 pm - Grandchildren meet grandparents in the auditorium
1:25 pm - Grandparents attend class with their grandchildren
2:00 pm - Grandparents attend a reception in the cafeteria with their grandchildren
2:25 pm - Program concludes
If your child has a grandparent or senior relative who lives in the area and would like to attend our program, please complete and submit the registration form by October 11, 2019. It is important that we receive your reservation for planning purposes, as it is difficult to accommodate additional requests after this date.
If you would like your child(ren) to go home with their grandparent(s) after the program, please indicate this on the registration form. This year, grandparents will sign their grandchild(ren) out in the 9th period class that they visit. We will provide teachers with a list of those students who have permission to leave with their grandparents after the program. These lists will only include the grandparents whose reservations are completed by October 11, 2019. All other grandparents will be required to provide a note from the parent/guardian giving them permission to sign their grandchild(ren) out on the day of the program, which can be done in the attendance office.
Thank you and we look forward to another successful program.
