A Note About Grandparent & Grandfriends' Day

Traditionally spring is the time when we invite our Grandparents and Grandfriends to campus for a special day of sharing and classroom visits.

We are thinking about all of you and we had certainly hoped to see you soon. Due to the current health crisis we are all facing, this event will need to be postponed until spring 2021. We are very disappointed since we so enjoy having all of you, our grandfriends, join us at The Raleigh School.

Even though we cannot see you in person, we want to keep in touch in the coming weeks. We plan to share part of The Raleigh School magic with you electronically on what would have been our special day together on campus. Please share your email address, using the form on this page, so that we may continue to be in touch with you.

This is a new frontier and is calling on teachers to find new ways and techniques for engaging students remotely to ensure the important work we do at The Raleigh School continues.

To support Raleigh School teachers during this time you can donate HERE.

To make certain TRS will be here for years to come you can give to our school endowment HERE.

And as we do each year, you can give back to our school library and honor your grandchild through the purchase of a book through the Library Fund designed especially for Raleigh School Grandparents and Grandfriends.

Stay well until we can see you again in person.

Exciting Raleigh School Campus Updates

Our Community.
The rich tradition of parent involvement is one of our most enduring values. We have been fortunate as a community, to secure the funds and in-kind donations for our new elementary playscape.


Thank you to grandparents, current and alumni parents who contributed to make this BIG dream come true!

Our Vision.

To allow children the space and freedom to play, fostering imaginations, creativity, and becoming better stewards of the earth.


Play Matters.



The Play Matters building project began last summer and final touches coming in January.

We celebrated with an official opening on February 14, 2020. Each day the adults are in our community get to witness the joy of seeing children play.


If you missed the opportunity to contribute and would still like to add to this success story, we have a few more items on our wish list. Contact Karen Green for details.
