Grandparents and Friends Steering Committee

The Grandparents Steering Committee works with the School to provide opportunities for grandparents and equivalent special friends to connect with the Sidwell Friends community, engage with each other, and support the School. A steering committee composed of representatives from each division works with the director of parent relations to plan activities and share information.
