Student Experience a Reflection of YOUR Generosity...

Parker Families:

We’re like-minded families at Parker. Not in politics, certainly, nor in food preferences nor in religion, but we do share some beliefs about school and school-keeping. Parker families come from more than forty cities and towns, so it really is an intentional community, a place where the members are drawn together by a shared vision rather than geography or proximity. To a remarkable degree, Parker is transparent and consistent about the nature of that vision: our school is guided by the Ten Common Principles of Essential Schools and everything we do is shaped by those philosophical commitments.

It's also true that Parker is a charter public school, with all the advantages and challenges that come with the charter sector. One significant advantage is the autonomies afforded us, the ability to keep an Essential School and refine our own programs. One significant challenge is that Parker, like all charter public schools, must fund its own facilities without access to building subsidies available to traditional public districts.

In the coming days you will receive an invitation to make a tax-deductible gift to the school. We’re in the first phase of our Third Decade Fund, focused on capital (the roof replacement project currently underway) and operations (supporting teacher salaries, utilities, and other program elements). We will need your help to reach our fundraising goals. Each and every gift, regardless of its size, is a show of support for Parker, its mission, and its students.

Please respond generously to the upcoming appeal for voluntary support, knowing that your generosity is reflected in the quality of student experience at Parker.
