Divisional Fall Trip Reminders


Dear Division One Families:

We hope you are getting excited as all Division One staff and students prepare to head out for our “every-other-year” trip to the Becket Chimney Corners YMCA Outdoor Center in western Massachusetts!

This outdoor setting will provide a variety of exciting team building and problem-solving activities (for example, low and high ropes courses, environmental studies and other initiatives). We will focus on the importance of trust, communication, cooperation and group responsibility, while having a lot of fun together! Each time we take this trip, we are amazed at how this experience develops divisional identity, brings advisories together, and helps students get to know one another and their teachers in a new way. We think this is an important piece of the Parker experience.

The estimated cost is $315 per student, which includes all food, lodging, activities and travel expenses. Total payment is due by school registration on August 28thChecks should be made out to the “Parker School”. You can also pay online at the Parker School website using the link above under Students & Parents>Online Bill/Fee Payment Link.

We have made every attempt to make this trip affordable; please do not allow money to keep your student from participating. There is full and partial scholarship money available; you may apply confidentially by contacting Michelle McKenna at

For a complete overview, and instructions for forms and fees, please visit the Division 1 Trip Information Page.


Dear Division Two Families:

We are quite excited about our Fall Trip to Boston! The purpose of this trip is to provide an opportunity for the Division to spend time together away from the school, allowing for community building and opportunities for team building.

The cost of the trip is $125.00 per student; checks should be made out to The Parker School and returned to the front office, attention Cathy Pearlman. Please remember the payment schedule below:

  • Wednesday, August 28, 2019 (Registration Day): $65.00
  • Thursday, September 12, 2019 (Back to School Night): $60.00

Please do not allow money to keep your student from participating. There is full and partial scholarship money available. You may apply confidentially by contacting Michelle McKenna at

In the Returning Student Summer Packet, you will find instructions for completing the permission slip via the Health Portal, OR you may print the form and bring it with you on Registration Day, August 28, 2019 along with the first payment of $65.00. Having these documents in hand on Registration Day will greatly help us make a smooth start to the year – thank you for completing them for that day!
