All Francis Parker School students' grandparents are welcome into our special grandparent community. Parker has a unique and special group who oversees the grandparent community, our Grandparents Council (GPC). The GPC was established in 2003 to engage grandparents in the life of the School and promote their support of its mission. Whether you live in or out of state, the GPC welcomes interested grandparents and surrogate grandparents to get involved, have fun and participate.
Message from the Grandparents Council Chairs
Welcome to our 15th year of wonderful and exciting adventures.
As grandparents we are so fortunate to be able to be active players in the lives of our grandchildren and perhaps see through the window into the future as we share in their world. The Francis Parker Grandparents Council (GPC) provides these opportunities through special events, meetings and gatherings throughout the year. We are able to learn about our grandchildren's academic endeavors and cultural experiences as well as their overall curriculum. We can also expend our own aptitudes with interesting field trips and programs shared with other like-minded grandparents. With our financial support and the fun and enjoyable volunteer efforts, we remain involved in the Parker community.
Grandparents and Special Friends Days for the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools are not to be missed and provide treasured memories of these school days with our grandchildren. These special days allow us to truly experience with our grandchildren the Parker education they enjoy so much.
We look forward to meeting you and hope you will become a part of the Grandparents Council, where your participation and involvement is appreciated and continuously rewarded. Simply click Join the Grandparents Council and complete the brief form to join. There are no requirements nor homework; only wonderful company and terrific grandchildren.
Fondly, Sandy and Mike Harris
