Duke School grandparents and special friends are very important to our community. Much of our success would not be possible without your support. We encourage grandparents to visit the classrooms, culminations and events, and be a part of your grandchild(ren)'s education. Grandparents receives several publications and event announcements from Duke School, including the school's calendar, Under the Oak magazine and Grandparents Day invitation. 

As we are aware that all grandparents will not be able to join us at Duke School, special friends are always welcome, especially on our Grandparents & Special Friends Day!

Grandparents & Special Friends Day
