Parking is very limited. Please utilize the complimentary valet service.
Grandparents and grandfriends of Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School students are invited. We respectfully ask that parents attend only if grandparents require mobility assistance and remember that students may also be having normal classes during the event.
Parents who would like to volunteer for the day may contact the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at 214-353-5795.
We recommend that guests wear comfortable, warm clothing and shoes. Guests will be walking around campus with their students.
We understand that not all students have grandparents and that some grandparents will be unable to attend. We encourage these students to bring another special older adult – a family friend, or another relative, such as an aunt or uncle.
