"We have enjoyed every part of Grandparents Day - from the joy and pride on the faces of our three grandsons as they introduce their teachers and show us their work, to the end program for the school choral performance. Especially watching the smiles and laughter as the kids sing Gobble Gobble Gobble and watch the Turkey Trot."
- Pat and Larry, Grandparents of Hunter, Cole and Drake, Class of 2024 and 2026
"Grandparents Day is a great intergenerational activity because my grandson likes having me around and it's great for me because I get to see him in an environment that he loves."
- Ruth, Grandparent of Grayson, Class of 2027

Donate to the Annual Fund. Hillbrook’s Vision is to inspire students to achieve their dreams and reach beyond themselves to make a difference in the world. Your gifts help us make this extraordinary educational experience happen. In addition, the Fund helps us reach our goal of supporting all students who are a philosophical match with Hillbrook by dedicating $2.3 million to Flexible Tuition, directly benefiting over 28% of our families. As a Grandparents Circle Donor, we will:
buy a book for the library or classroom that will include a placard with both your and your grandchild’s name;
Invite you to ‘Morning with Mark Silver’ on Grandparents/Special Friends Day; and
acknowledge your gift in our school’s Annual Report with your grandchild’s name next to yours.
Donate to the Benefit! We are always looking for Sponsors and Silent Auction items, including vacation getaways, wines, whiskies, gift cards and more.
