Welcome Grandparents, Relatives, and Special Friends!

Grandparents, extended family members, and special friends, whom we lovingly refer to as “grandfriends,” are an important part of our Redwood Day community. We invite you to be a part of your grandchild(ren)’s or special friend’s experience at Redwood Day in any of the following ways: 

Generations Day

Redwood Day traditionally hosts an annual Generations Day event on our campus on the Friday before Thanksgiving week. The event is dedicated to our grandfriends so they can meet our leadership, mingle with each other, learn about the School, and most importantly, be a part of their student’s experience at Redwood Day. During the pandemic, we have offered virtual events instead and will continue to do so this school year until it is safe to gather again in person. 

Virtual Generations Day
Friday, November 19, 2021
8:30 - 9:15 a.m. PST
Please join us on Zoom for coffee and conversation! Hear from our Head of School, John Loeser, catch a glimpse into student life, interact with some of our faculty and staff, and build community with other Redwood Day grandparents and special friends.

Write a Note to a Redwood Day Student

Leave a “Grandfriend Note” to your student(s) in our annual magazine, RD Connects. This is a great way to surprise your student with a heartfelt note or words of encouragement that they will have in print as a keepsake for years to come! Click here to leave your note. 
(Due to space constraints, some grandfriend notes may be posted on our Facebook page instead.)

Attend Redwood Day Events

Grandfriends are invited to other Redwood Day events including our annual Auction, Winter Concert, student art shows, the STEAM Fair, Step Up, and 8th-grade graduation. (Some events may be virtual and capacity at in-person events may be limited.)

Make a Gift

Grandparents and special friends are invited to make a gift to our Annual Fund. Gifts to the Annual Fund allow the School to provide a world-class curriculum, attract and retain a diverse, highly qualified, and culturally competent faculty and staff and remain accessible to a wide range of families through a strong tuition assistance program. You are also invited to sponsor or donate items for the Redwood Day annual Auction.

Make a Legacy Gift

Leave a legacy gift through a donation in your will, trust, or retirement account to Redwood Day. For more information, please click here or contact Rachel Cannon, Director of Advancement, at 415.534.0800 x284 or rcannon@rdschool.org.
