Grandparent's Day
Click image for a printable copy

Paradise Intermediate would like to invite grandparents to school on September 9th and 10th, 2019. 4th-grade grandparents are invited to come on September 9th and 5th grade grandparents on September 10th. If you have students in both grades and the grandparents can only come once, you may choose one of the days.  Due to all of the cars, parking in the back of the Intermediate School is encouraged. 

Beginning at 7:30, grandparents are invited to start the morning off by signing in outside the library in the 5th-grade hall. At this time you will receive a list of activities to complete with your grandchild. Join us in the Intermediate Library for a breakfast snack of coffee/orange juice and a donut.  At 7:55, we will pause for the morning announcements. Students need to be back in class no later than 9:00. 

We are looking forward to seeing you!
