(2014-2015 Academic Year Message)
Being a grandparent is certainly one of life’s most rewarding thrills, and being a member of the Grandparent Council (GPC) is a great way to be involved with the education of our grandkids here at Francis Parker School.
We meet a few times a year, with the opportunity to learn firsthand about the curriculum and experiences that our grandkids are enjoying. Through our financial support of Parker and our volunteer efforts especially on Grandparents & Special Friends Days for the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools, we get to enjoy an important aspect of our grandkid’s lives.
Your input and participation in your grandkids academic experience is special—and we want to make it fun for you to get involved. We invite you to become members of the Grandparents Council (click here) if you aren’t already and encourage you to attend the meetings and events listed above.
We look forward to seeing you this year!
Dave and Parm Von Behren
Grandparents Council Co-Chairs
