Transitions - Enrollment - New Teachers Collaborative

Parker Families:

Happy New Year! The month of January derives its name from Janus, a Roman deity associated with beginnings, doorways, gates, and transitions. Because Janus is associated with both the past and the future, he is often depicted with two faces. Fitting, then, that January is one of two opportunities each year for Parker students to present a Gateway Exhibition to an audience of family, teachers, schoolmates, and friends. Public exhibitions of mastery are integral to the student experience in all three divisions at Parker and in Essential Schools more generally; over seventy students are scheduled to make Gateway Exhibitions next week. Congratulations to all!

It's also enrollment season for prospective students and their families with additional information sessions scheduled in January. Thanks for sharing news of Parker with your friends and neighbors! Application deadline is February 1, 2019. Siblings of currently enrolled students have preference in the lottery AND must fill out the application by February 1.

Maybe one of your friends or neighbors is interested in becoming a teacher. Encourage him, her, or them to explore the New Teachers Collaborative, a key Parker program that allows early career teachers to learn-by-doing, teaching at Parker or at one of our partner schools.
