Give Parker Love!
February 10, 2023
|There are so many things to love about Parker. From our bright, engaged, and curiosity-driven students, to our expansive natural campus that provides endless opportunities to explore, Parker is a cherished community that promotes lifelong learning success for our students. |
It takes a village to raise a child, and parent support is critical to supporting learning experiences here at Parker. That is why, every year, we celebrate the second week of February as Give Parker Love Week to encourage 100% Parent Participation in our Parker Annual Fund.
|Parker’s annual fund provides the essential, unrestricted support that enables us to provide our students with the best educational experience possible. Monies raised help bridge the gap between what Parker receives in net annual tuition and the full cost of operating our program. We use these funds to offer innovative and quality programs with talented faculty and staff, to support a culture rooted in our core values, and to enrich our community where every child is known. By giving to the Annual Fund, you will be making a difference where it counts the most – in the lives of our current students.|
Parker is blessed with an incredibly generous parent community. If you have already given to Parker, THANK YOU! If you are just contributing now, any amount that you are able to give helps, and all donations count towards our final participation goal!
|In honor of Give Parker Love week we will be sharing student artwork and messages of love all week long. *We are also inviting current families to visit our Wall of Love (behind our front desk), make a donation, and add your own heart sharing what YOU love about Parker. These messages will be shared on social media throughout the week to show just how much our extended family cares about Parker too!|
We will also have several exciting fundraising incentives and challenges. Thanks to a very generous donation of goods from Parker parents Jonaliza and Ned Ceklic, we will be raffling off FOUR gift bags stuffed with an elegant selection of earth-friendly home goods. Any donation over $30 will be entered into our gift basket raffle, with tickets “sold” in increments of 3 for every $30 donated; any donation over $100 will automatically receive 10 tickets. We will also hold a Classroom Parent Participation Challenge, with the first class to reach 100% parent participation earning a pizza lunch and dance party!
|We will be checking in daily next week with updates on our participation numbers and messages of Parker love. If you would like to jumpstart your giving, you can do so by clicking on the button below! Otherwise, there will be plenty of opportunities to give every day next week. We will also be calling families who have not donated to provide opportunities to make a pledge over the phone or send us a check. Thank you all for your incredible support of our Parker community. You are an invaluable part of what makes Parker unique and enables us to engage each student in a thoughtful and challenging learning process that inspires curiosity and a passion to achieve, nurtures confidence and community, and cultivates purposeful action.|
With deepest gratitude,Andrea Hartman
