Grandparent Involvement

A School for the Whole Family

Grandparents visit during WalkfestWhen we say Carey is a school for your family, that means the entire family. We know that grandparents play a significant role in many of our students' lives, and we honor that involvement. After all, we aim to graduate lifelong learners, and grandparents are often a child's most experienced role models of lifelong learning.

Celebrating Milestones

Grandparents frequently join us as special guests at Carey festivities and milestones. Children light up when grandparents applaud a performance at Holiday Sing or Operetta, circle the track with them or cheer from the stands at Walkfest, or offer a congratulatory hug at kindergarten and fifth grade graduations. Carey supports many traditions that bring families together, and these become treasured memories that bridge the generations.

Celebration is a two-way street at Carey, and each year we host Generations Day, an event dedicated to honoring grandparents’ special role in our students’ lives. Through classroom visits, games, and crafts, students relish the chance to connect with grandparents in “their space” and to share in a very hands-on way how they learn and grow at Carey.
