News for the Week of May 21

Dear Upper School Parents,

I write this as we prepare for ASB's fun-filled Mr. FPS. This is an event celebrating the talents of a lucky few senior boys. It should be a hoot. As senior parents know, today was the last regular day of our classes for our seniors. They have exams next week along with a bunch of celebratory events. We are so happy to celebrate this group because they are a wonderful class full of very special and talented young men and women. They have well represented themselves and Parker during their high school careers. I don't want to sing their praises too much because we have a few upcoming events where I will get that opportunity. Suffice to say, the Class of 2012 is a stellar one.

Have a lovely weekend,

Paul Barsky
