Grandparent Involvement

Grandparents' Day will be May 6, 2022.
Welcome, we're glad you're here! Veritas School appreciates and encourages grandparent involvement, as we believe that grandparents can have a direct impact on their grandchildren's education by praying faithfully and by being active members of the Veritas community. We have listed some of the ways that you can be involved below. We also hope to see you at Grandparents' Day! If you are planning to attend, please take a minute to register using the link below.

We warmly invite you to join us for an in-person Grandparents' Day on Friday, May, 6.
