  • 4th Annual Grandparents & Special Friends Days

  • To celebrate the special relationships between grandparents and grandchildren, Merritt Academy will again host Grandparents & Special Friends Day this spring for students in K2 – 6th grade. We have included “special friends” for those children whose grandparents may be unable to attend. In these cases, another close relative (aunt, uncle) or a very close adult friend (neighbor, for example) can be invited to be with your child at this event. To best accommodate our visitors, the Grandparents & Special Friends Day visits will be spaced over several days with program times in the morning and afternoon.
