Parker Summer Program
Returning for its 56th year
With the second trimester now under way, the Summer Program office encourages Parker families to begin thinking about their summer plans and determine how Parker’s summer academic program will fit into the mix. Session I runs June 22-July 10; Session II is July 13-July 31.
Course Catalog and Registration coming
The Summer Program course catalog is scheduled to be released in early February — around the time of our February Break. (The comprehensive version with course descriptions will be distributed electronically; a more concise version will be mailed to Parker families.) Registration for all academic courses, afternoon activities and Sports Camps will open in early March with the ever-popular “Early Bird” option returning!
New and Exciting Courses Offered
Virtually all of the “traditional” courses from past summers will return to both campuses. In addition, a number of new courses, particularly at the Middle School level, are scheduled to be offered. An exciting array of new courses that fall under the science umbrella of coding, programming and technology will make their first appearance. The Summer Program is also excited to offer a weeklong bicycle touring trip that will kick off outside Portland, Oregon, led by Upper School teacher and experienced rider Victoria Helms. In performing arts, Drama instructor Elise Marinkovich is putting the pieces in place to offer students the opportunity to perform the musical “13,” to be staged in the PAC on the Linda Vista campus.
In short, the coming Summer Program will again provide a number of great enrichment and advancement options for your children.
As always, please feel free to contact the Summer Program office on 858-569-7900, x4109 (Monique) or x4236 (Tim) with any questions.
