The Saint Andrew’s community has a unique and meaningful way of recognizing the love grandparents have for their grandchildren. Each year in February, SA invites grandparents to campus to share and celebrate with their grandchildren, teachers, and administrators the school's compassionate mission of mind, body, and spirit on Grandparents Days. This year, Grandparents Days are held on Wednesday - Friday, February 6-8, 2019.
Grandparents Days at Saint Andrew’s School are marked by student performances, classroom visits, and campus exploration. Delicious refreshments are served throughout each of the three Grandparents Day events:
