It’s been an incredible year so far! Park’s Centennial kicked off in September with our Birthday Weekend, including Brown and White Day and a carnival with rides, games, and entertainment. Throughout the semester, students have learned about Park’s history in assemblies and in their classrooms. In October, Centennial Scholar David Perkins of Harvard’s Project Zero spent three days at Park, meeting with faculty, observing classes, and presenting to parents. November was the Centennial Auction – a fabulous evening of camaraderie and fundraising. Looking ahead, March brings the highly anticipated return of Brain Thrust (see inside) and on Friday May 31, the ultimate Park event begins...Centennial Weekend. You will not want to miss this two-day community celebration marking Park’s first 100 years!
Most of us had come fresh from the rigorous discipline of the public schools, and when we found ourselves exposed to the lenient, rational, self-government type of discipline for which the Park School stood from the very first, we did not know how to treat the new-found freedom.
With great excitement, the Centennial Steering Committee invites you to celebrate Park’s 100th birthday. We have planned a year full of events, beginning on the school’s actual birthday weekend, Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29, to honor Park’s century of educational innovation and leadership.
