Parents @ Parker


Week of September 5th

Happy Labor Day!

And so, it begins.  Welcome to the 2011 - 2012 school year!  I want to extend a special welcome to all of our new Parker families and I look foward to meeting many of you at the New Parent Dinner on September 13th.

There is a lot going on the first month of school - big transitions for everyone.  But, the good news is - we are all in this together.  That's what is special about the Parker community - its students, its faculty, its administration, its parents...  We all work together to create the best possible learning environment for our kids.

There are a few things to be aware of:

  • The E-newlsetters are the school's PRIMARY communication tool.  Be sure to click on the appropriate division(s) to get the most up-to-date information for that week.  
  • Parents@Parker is published by the Parents Association.  Notices for the PA will be found here.  So, be sure to click this banner for information on upcoming meetings, events and volunteer opportunities.
  • This "blog" format for the newsletters creates an automatic archive.  If you miss a week, you just scroll down and it's all right there.
  • Please be sure to take the time to set up your personal Dynacal.  You can customize the calendars you want to suit your family's needs.  You can even subscribe to certain calendars which will automatically update your personal calendar with Parker info.
  • Familiarize yourself with the Parker website and Parent Portal.  Communication is always a challenge because of the diverse needs of each family.  Do your part to make sure you don't miss out on anything.

Ready or not, here it comes.  Have a great year!
