We love our Grandparents!
Westlake Christian Academy looks forward every fall to having our students’ grandparents visit the school. This year, we are providing two opportunities for grandparents to visit classrooms. Preschool–6th grade teachers will host virtual classroom “visits” in the morning (via Google Meet), and we will also have in-person drop-in tours (all grades) in the afternoon.
If you have been to a previous Grandparents Day at Westlake, the format will seem quite different. We hope that offering both a virtual and in-person option will allow many grandparents to attend. We are also eliminating the portion of the day when grandparents gather in the gym to watch class performances. Instead, individual classes will be making a presentation during their virtual visit. We hope you enjoy the opportunity to spend some time with your grandchild(ren) and see what’s happening at Westlake!
Friday September 24, 2021
9:15–11:30am: Virtual Classroom Visits
1:00–2:30pm: Drop-in Classroom Tours
Grandparents Day is a Half Day (9am–12pm)
Grandparents Day is a HALF DAY for all students. There is no After Care on all-school half days. Because it is also a Late Start Friday, the school day runs from 9am–12pm for Preschool through 12th grade. Pickup for all Preschool–6th grade students is from Slusser Street, via the back entrance to the playground.
All students are expected to be picked up between 12:00–12:20pm. Please leave campus for lunch, and then students may return with grandparents any time between 1:00–2:30pm for an in-person classroom tour.
Morning: Virtual Classroom Tours (Preschool–6th Grade)
Take a peek at what the school day looks like for your grandchild! Preschool–6th grade teachers will host a brief Google Meet for each grade. The times will be staggered, so that grandparents can “visit” multiple grades throughout the morning. Grandparents can expect to “meet” the teacher, “see” what’s happening in the classroom, and say hello to their grandchild.
Each grade will have a 10–15 minute Google Meet, which grandparents can join using a link that was emailed to parents on September 22nd. Please ask your grandchild’s parent to forward the email to you. A schedule and full instructions for joining will be included. Please RSVP below.
Afternoon: In-Person Drop-In Tours (Preschool–12th Grade)
Grandparents are invited to visit the school with their grandchildren to take a quick tour of the classroom. Students will be able to show you where they sit, along with some of their school work.
The school will be open from 1:00–2:30pm for tours. You may come at any time during that window, but please let us know that we should expect you. The doors will not open until 1:00 pm, as our teachers need time to eat lunch and prepare for your arrival. Please RSVP below.
