Welcome to your gateway to the Park alumni community...
All Park alums are invited to join your fellow Bruins in celebrating Park friendships and memories on June 3 & 4, 2016. The weekend concludes with reunions for our milestone classes, the 1's and '6's. Stay tuned for details...
#GivingTuesday is a day when people around the world come together to give back. A global movement to harness the power of social media and community, #GivingTuesday is observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday, "a day to give rather than get," kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their end-of-year giving.
Here at Park, we celebrate #GivingTuesday online, on the phone, and in person. Join us on social media, volunteer for our evening phoning, or reach out via other channels, to say thank you for your own Park experience. Support the Eureka moments that happen throughout a Park education with a gift to the Annual Fund: www.parkschool.net/Eureka
Come back to Park for "Teaching the Mind to Misbehave" on Sunday December 6, 2-4 pm, a conversation with New York Times bestselling author Adam Gidwitz '00 and Newbery Medal winner Laura Schlitz. Writers and friends, Laura and Adam will hold a conversation about their creative processes and their latest books. As a librarian at The Park School, Laura told stories to Adam, who remembers being transfixed. When he became a teacher, Adam started telling stories to his students. Both Schlitz and Gidwitz credit the children who have listened to them over the years as a source of inspiration; both have used what they've learned from oral storytelling in their written works.
The fall 2015 edition of Cross Currents is available online. This year's edition of alumni notes shines a light on breakthrough moments — stories of working toward a goal and getting to "Aha!" Read the magazine here.
