Semester Parents Weekend


Fall and Spring Semester Parents Weekend

The Island School would like to invite you…family members only please…to come and share in your child’s semester experiences. The weekend will give you a window on what this journey means. Events are planned at The Island School from 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday ending on Friday evening with dinner and a Coffee House Talent Show. Saturday is a free day with your child. They may be with you from 8:00 in the morning returning to school by 10:00 p.m. Sunday is a day where the students and faculty come back together as a community and prepare for the last few weeks of the semester.

Eleuthera is a unique island that is fairly remote. There is no “Hertz or Avis and no Marriott”. It can be challenging to plan a trip to Eleuthera and Anne Maxey, who is Chris Maxey’s mother, volunteers to help you with your housing and rental car needs as well as share airline logistic knowledge. Anne and Tom Maxey have had a house on Eleuthera for over thirty years and she looks forward to helping you with your plans.

RSVP to Anne Maxey at (561) 797-0523 and leave a message or email
