Grandfriend’s Day is a special day for our grandfriends to visit and learn with their students in the classroom.

Parking will be available at the Missouri Botanical Garden on Shaw Avenue.

Grandfriends should plan to arrive at the Botanical Garden 30 to 40 minutes before the beginning of your student’s classroom time slot.
We will have limited parking on the school lot, but ONLY for cars with Disability plates or placards.
Doors open at 8:45 AM. The festivities begin in the gym with registration and breakfast. Then groups will be ushered to classrooms at the appointed times.
