Calling all Grandparent Gardeners!

Last year, we kicked off the first year of The Parish School’s “Grandparents' Garden Group.” This team met during the school day throughout the year to keep Parish’s many gardens growing. Everyone enjoyed it and campus prospered so much under their care, that we’re doing it again! This year, we’re including grandchildren in the fun! During the event, grandparents may meet their Parish grandchild on the front porch of the administration building to work in the school gardens together.


  • Gardening with Grandchildren:
    Elementary: 7:50-8:30 a.m.
    Early Childhood: 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.
  • At the conclusion of the grandchild’s gardening time, they will return to class, but we welcome grandparents to break for a snack and then continue gardening on their own. 

Grandparents should coordinate with their grandchild's parent(s) to:

  • Determine transportation arrangements for the child that morning. If parents are bringing the child to school, they should drop their child off on our admin porch, where they will wait with a staff member until you arrive.
  • Ask the parent to notify your grandchild's teacher that they will be gardening with you that morning.



Kindly RSVP by Wednesday, February 19

Permission from the student's parent(s) is required to participate. Parents have been instructed to notify their classroom teacher.
