Grandparents Week @ Driver Elementary will be Oct. 9th – 13th

Driver Elementary will observe Grandparents’ Week Monday through Friday, October 9th through October 13th.

Each student may invite grandparents to have lunch in the school cafeteria.

We would like to try something a little different this year and designate a specific day for each grade level to come out and have lunch (please see the attached flyer – GRANDPARENT’S Week 2017).

Please note:  Early Start and ECSE have not been assigned a designated day; therefore, you may come on any day.

We are hoping this will help your experience to be a little more enjoyable.

Please note:  it is not mandatory that you come on the designated day. If you have a scheduling conflict, you are welcome to come any day.

Adult lunches are available in the cafeteria for approximately $2.75 without tea and $3.00 with tea which can be paid by cash only (small bills are appreciated).

A child who does not have a grandparent in Suffolk may invite an aunt, uncle, or other adult in the family.
