INCUBATE IT 2.0

Join fellow Park parents, faculty, and alumni for food, drink, networking, and fun on February 28 from 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m.

Help students discover the joy of reading — join Park School students and become a Reading Partner!
This school year, 13 students from The Park School set out to become volunteer tutor Reading Partners at Johnston Square Elementary School. Just last semester, these volunteer tutors completed over 52 hours of tutoring sessions using an easy-to-follow lesson plan each week to help their partners build both literacy skills and confidence. The economic impact of just one semester of time with Reading Partners has been immense — The Park School students’ 52 hours equals $1,393 of time invested in helping Baltimore City students learn to read. If you are able to help, or to learn more, CLICK HERE for further details of the program. Thank you!
