Grandparents' Day a Success

Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day, sponsored by the Governor's School Foundation, was held Apr. 11 and allowed grandparents of current students the opportunity to visit with their grandchildren at Maggie Walker. After a short presentation by Director Jeff McGee, the grandparents took a short tour of the school and then attended a reception with their grandchildren. Mary Michael Schweiker and the Events Committee organized the event.

So far this year, the Foundation's Annual Fund Campaign has raised $307,188 for the school. Overall current parent participation is 67%, and here is the parent participation by class:

• Seniors: 69%
• Juniors: 62%
• Sophomores: 61%
• Freshmen: 63%
