Grandparents & Grandfriends Day 2023

Grandparents & Grandfriends Day

Grandparents & Grandfriends Day
wednesday, September 27, 2023

Grandparents and Grandfriends Day is one of the most adored and memorable traditions at Avon Old Farms School, a highlight of the academic year. This day is an opportunity for loved ones to visit their grandson(s) and enjoy our unique campus. This is a special occasion where grandparents and grandfriends can see a day in the life of their Avon boy. During the day you will be able to attend a class, experience the arts program through student artwork in the Ordway Art Gallery and be treated to student-led poetry and musical performances. We also invite you to spend the afternoon cheering on the sports teams. It is a day to celebrate the Avon community with loved ones. We are thrilled to be hosting you! 

Check out the fun we had last Grandparents and Grandfriends Day here!
