Kresge Family and Friends Day

Please join us! Saturday, February 10, 2018

Parents, siblings, grandparents and friends are invited to spend the day at Porter, visiting with us and your student in the midst of our (usually) cold Winter. 

Our goal is to give you as much time as possible with your student — so we've scheduled a handful of offerings for the morning, and we'll leave you free for the afternoon. Schedule is in development mode and will be available here. Please check back in the Fall.
