Grandparents/Special Person Day

Owl Prowl
An evening walk and lesson on owls and other wildlife with Environmental Education Coordinator Rick Glassman at St. Patrick’s Park.

Parent Breakfasts
Breakfasts are held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. Families meet for breakfast with an open house in their children’s classroom. Children host their parents and share their classroom experience.

Parent/Child Adventure Night
Hosted by Early Childhood and Elementary programs, these parent/child evenings foster fun and community.

At the Elementary and Junior High levels, performances are part of the school year. The students work with their teachers to write, direct, and perform school assemblies based on the curriculum they are currently studying such as the Upper El American Revolutionary War presentation.

Performances also include special guests who come to perform in our auditorium, such as the South Bend Symphony String Quartet, Western Michigan University Dance Group, and Kevin Locke, a Native American flute player and hoop dancer.

Science Expo
An annual evening event for all of our students, required for Upper Elementary and Junior High students. Students proudly display their science projects and present them to interested parents and friends. A learning experience for all!
