Grandparents and Special Friends Day: A Cherished Tradition at GFA

This year's Grandparents and Special Friends Day at Greens Academy was a resounding success, overflowing with joy, performances, and community connection. We were thrilled to welcome over 300 visitors to our campus this year. 

The festivities began with captivating performances in the Janet Hartwell Performing Arts Center, where students from each Lower School grade recited poems, and Middle School Chorus classes showcased their talents. 

Following the performances, grandparents and special friends were escorted to their respective divisions and grade levels, engaging in curated activities that allowed them to experience our vibrant school life firsthand. Guests in Lower School explored beloved spaces such as the Lower School library, STEAM classroom and Lower School art room. Additionally they toured our newly constructed Lower School Dining Commons, witnessing the ongoing growth and development of our facilities. 

A standout moment of the day was brought by our 7th and 8th graders, who took pride in presenting "A P.I.E.C.E of GFA." This unique showcase allowed them to highlight aspects of Greens Farms Academy they are most proud of through presentations that exemplified our core values: Passion, Integrity, Empathy, Curiosity, and Excellence. Each presentation demonstrated the students' deep connection with these values and highlighted their significant influence on their educational and personal development.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to this event's tremendous success!
