One of the highlights of our CSW celebration is dedicated to Grandparents. Attached is an invitation to this year’s Grandparents/Special Friends Day taking place Friday, Feb. 2. We begin this special day with Grandparents and students at SES Church for mass at 9am, followed by classroom visits, refreshments, photos, a craft, etc. We ask that you kindly share this invitation with your child’s Grandparents (or a special friend if no grandparents can attend). No RSVP is needed.
