Grandparents and Special Friends Day


Grandparents and Special Friends Day
May 6, 2022

The Berwick community is excited to welcome you for a day of academics, arts, athletics, and fun!

Grandparents and special friend are an integral part of the Berwick Academy community. Find details and information about this year's event below. 
For any questions or concerns please contact Jaime Roberge at jroberge@berwickacademy.org or 207-384-6303.

Parking and Transportation
Parking is available in our Lower School and Fogg Memorial lots. Handicap parking will be reserved in front of our Athletic Center. Complimentary golf cart shuttle service will be available from 8:30 a.m. until 12 p.m. to transport guests to and from their cars and around campus. 

The Classroom Experience
We encourage you to speak with your student(s) about their schedules in advance. Knowing where and when you will meet for classes will make for an easy and enjoyable day on campus. Volunteers will be stationed around campus throughout the day to assist you as needed.

Please note - lunch will not be served at this year's event. You are welcome to take your student(s) to lunch off campus. Lower and Middle School students may leave at lunch for the remainder of the day. Upper School students must return to campus after lunch for afternoon classes and activities.

The safety of our community and their extended families is our top priority. A more detailed schedule and day-of protocols will be sent out to registrants prior to the event.
