Grandparents and Special Friends Event – Date Correction

The ISP Grandparent and Special Friends event is coming in May!

This exciting community event for ISP students and their grandparents and/or special friends is held annually every May. In the past we have hosted our guests for a sit-down tea. Last year we celebrated the art of storytelling in a virtual event format. We are hoping to bring this event back to campus safely on May 7, 2022. <– please note corrected date!

Grandparents and special friends will receive an invitation to this event soon but, in order to receive an invitation, we need to make sure we have contact information. To add a grandparent or special friend to our mailing list, please use this form.
