Grandparent & Grandfriends' Day

All grandparents are invited to campus for a special day featuring a program with a presentation by each grade, as well as tours of campus. Grandparents are also invited to their grandchildren's classrooms, often with a chance for fun interactions between the generations.

FRIDAY, MAY 10TH , 2019, 9:15–11:15 A.M.


1141 RALEIGH SCHOOL DRIVE, RALEIGH, NC 27607 (Directions are available at for your convenience).

PROGRAM DETAILS: Start your morning with a reception and sharing program in the Athletics & Arts Center, followed by elementary classroom visits. Grandparents of preschool children are invited to visit that part of our campus following the program.

Of note, due to our preschool schedule, some of our classes are not in session on Friday mornings. We welcome you to attend Grandparents’ Day whether your grandchild is in class that day or not. If it is important to you that your grandchild be on campus when you visit, you may want to check your grandchild’s preschool schedule before you make a decision about attending this event. You're invited to visit our campus at any time.

Grandparent Library Fund

Grandparent contributions to the library fund each year help our elementary and preschool libraries to grow. Generous grandparents, just like you, purchase books in honor of their grandchildren. Your donations add books that take readers on great adventures, books about science, animals, other resource books and magazines.

The library fund is specifically designated for Raleigh School grandparents who wish to donate to The Raleigh School to provide vital materials and at the same time honor a grandchild.

Here’s how you can honor a grandchild: for each $50 donation we add one new book to our spring book order list. We prepare a bookplate that includes the name of your grandchild (one per book) and your name or names. In April, we will host a Book Selection Day, when the children come to the library and choose their honor book. The personalized bookplate is then placed in the book your grandchild selects and they will be the first student to check this new book out of our library! (For preschool children, our parent chair selects the honor books.)

Thank you for believing in the importance of reading.
