Parker Summer Program
2015 Planning is Under Way
As we lay the groundwork for the 2015 Summer Program – the School’s 56th – please note the following as you make your June-August plans:
Younger students who wish to get a jump-start on their 2016 academic year, or older students who are keen on accelerating their current academic program, will likely find a course or two that will keep their "brain in the fast lane" over the summer. Check back in February for a complete course listing. (With a number of new teachers joining Parker this year, we anticipate offering more than a few new courses next summer.)
TO HELP WITH PLANNING
Jump-Start, advancement and enrichment classes will be offered in three-week blocks from late June through the end of July. Session I begins June 22 and runs through July 10. Session II kicks off July 13 and ends July 31. The majority of classes are in the mornings, with fun activities for Lower and Middle School-aged students offered in the afternoon.
OUTSIDE SPORTS CAMPS TO RETURN
Based on the success of outside vendors offering sports camps last summer, Nike Sports, Top Gun Basketball and Creative Skills Soccer (among others) are primed to return in 2015. Stay tuned for more information in the months ahead.
DESTINATION SPACE CAMP!
Register for Space Camp Here
The ever-popular "Destination: Space Camp!" returns under the direction of Lower School teacher “Commander” Jennifer Hayman. As many families have already expressed an interest in learning more about this course/travel experience, an information session by Jennifer will be conducted at 3:30pm Thursday, Nov. 13. The session will be in her Mission Hills Campus classroom.
The course allows students to conduct space-related experiments, travel to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama, during the second week and, at course's end, present a short video to be premiered for family and friends.
