Welcome Incoming 1st Graders!

It is a GIPA tradition to have a welcome picnic for incoming 1st grade students and their families each year. This picnic is hosted by the second grade families and the GIPA Board. It is a great chance to meet other families in the program, meet the teachers, and reconnect with friends after the summer.

This year the picnic was at Crandon Park, on Key Biscayne, Saturday Aug 19. It was a hot day as usual on Saturday but it was fun regardless!

A big thank you to all of you who came out to help and promote our program. Many parents told me how much they appreciate it and the second graders were pros at set up and decor! This event is by and for the parents and students and in this regard it was a huge success with a turn-out of more than 200 people!

Enjoy some pictures from the event, below, and have a great year!

Kind Regards,
Magdalena Tomasino
