Grandparents & Special Friends

Duke School grandparents and special friends are very important to our community. Much of our success would not be possible without your support.

Grandparents & Special Friends Day is a very special event at Duke School. Grandparents and friends are honored by their grandchildren, faculty, and staff with a morning program of music, a concert, classroom visits, breakout sessions, an Art Expo, and lunch. We are excited to invite all Duke School Grandparents and Special Friends to this special event on Friday, April 26, 2024

Please note, that we sent to all grandparents and special friends on our list an email with the online invitation to the event on Tuesday, March 12, 2024. In the next couple of weeks (second half of March) you will also receive a physical invitation and RSVP card to join us for the event. If you are planning to attend, please mail an RSVP card back to us by April 12, 2024. However, we encourage you to RSVP online by clicking here or the button below.  For your convenience, we are happy to share our Grandparents and Special Friends Day program below as well.

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! In the meantime, we encourage grandparents and special friends to visit the classrooms, culminations, school events, and be a part of your grandchild(ren)'s education. Every year, Grandparents receive several publications and event announcements from Duke School, electronic mailers of Under the Oak magazine, and Grandparents and Special Friends Day invitations.
