Happy Grandfriends Day!

Hello, Percy Priest Elementary Family & Friends!

We are so excited that GrandFriends’ Day is just around the corner and want to be sure you have all of the details. And, we want to be sure you know of some great ways to save money and give money to the Percy Priest PTO all at the same time! Be sure to scroll down so you don’t miss anything.

On GrandFriends Day, students are invited to bring grandparents or a special friend to school to visit. GrandFriends are welcome to bring a lunch for themselves and their student. The cafeteria lunch will be available for students only.

GrandFriends will also have the opportunity to visit the Book Fair in the library and purchase books for their student.

And, our Roar Store that sells Percy Priest apparel (kids and adult sizes) will be open for business as well -– perfect for a little early Christmas shopping! You can preorder and pick-up your merchandise at the GrandFriends event by going to the Roar Store’s website (Roar Store – Percy Priest Elementary).

You’ll also get a special tour of your GrandFriends’ classroom! We are excited to see you all soon!
