It was hard to tell who had more fun at KO on Oct. 10 – the 250 adults who visited campus for Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day, or the middle school students who hosted them.
Young faces and old were beaming throughout the rainy morning, as the 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade students escorted their guests through a busy program that included performances from the jazz band and Choraliers, several classes, and lunch in the dining hall.

“The smiles and hugs said it all,” said Debra Coleman Hyde ’68, KO’s Director of Institutional Advancement. “This day is a wonderful tradition that highlights the importance of our extended family as an integral part of the KO community and the very special relationships these people share with our students.”
Head of School Dennis Bisgaard expressed his gratitude to those who made time and in some cases traveled a distance for the special event, reminding the guests that they did not have to wait a whole year to return to campus. “You are welcome here at any time,” he concluded with a smile.
