Tomorrow is Grandparent's Day! Please note a few requests to make things go more smoothly. Parking - The normal parking area for students will be blocked off for your grandparents. Students will need to park east of the cones. Chapel - Chapel will be after 1st period and you will sit with your grandparents. They will already be in the auditorium so your job will be to find them. You will not need to sit with your homeroom. Classes - Grandparents may attend class with you 2nd, 3rd or 4th periods. Please assist your teachers in providing chairs for them to sit in your classroom. There will also be student performances in the auditorium those periods if your grandparents don't care to sit in study hall with you. LUNCH - There will be 6 serving lines tomorrow and you may eat with your grandparents in the commons or the gym. Enjoy the day!!!
