Thank you for participating in NNM's Virtual Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Virtual Grandparents and Special Friends Day 2020. 

We loved to see everyones smiling faces and creative ways that you connected and made new memories together. Thank you for making it such a special day. 

Thank you to our Hosts, The Koduri Family. 

Our names are Anu and Prasad Koduri. We are the proud grandparents of Avani (8 yrs), Adarsh (6 yrs) and Anand Reddy (3 yrs) and our daughter, Priya is an NNM Alum. 

Our relationship with Near North started in 1980 when we were young parents looking for a school for our two children. We happened to pass by a church building on our way home from a less than reassuring visit to a school downtown. Children were outside laughing and playing in a small playground. The energy they radiated was so positive. We stopped and parked our car and there began our journey with Near North. We often say we found this school by accident but we like to think that luck was on our side that day. 

We remember our first Grandparent's Day at Near North and recall planting flowers with our granddaughter.  It was delightful to see her and all the children working together with their families in beautifying the school. Avani was so excited to share her school, her classroom and her experiences with us that day and we saw the same excitement on the faces of all the other children. It was like watching in real time how these children were developing into such wonderful and responsible individuals. 

Thank you for joining us this year.
