ParkerCares is the name of the Parents Association's parent education program. Parker Parents are encouraged to attend ParkerCares events.
What is ParkerCares?
ParkerCares is a PA committee that works with the School to meet parent education needs at Parker. Topics have ranged from parenting techniques, technology and cyber-space awareness, dealing with teens, parent wellness and more. Some events are school-wide and others are focused to a specific division or grade.
At the monthly PA General Meetings, the ParkerCares committee books speakers to inform parents about any number of topics ranging from bullying to parent-wellness and yoga!
ParkerCares will host renowned speakers and events that focus on age-based topics and specific parental interests within each of the School communities.
What is WeCare?
The Parker Parents Association is also a founding member of WeCare, a consortium of San Diego independent schools offering several parent education events each year to address the most pressing social issues facing parents and their children. WeCare's mission is to promote integrity, responsibility, ethical behavior and wellness in our school communities through ongoing collaboration and education. The schools currently participating include Francis Parker School, La Jolla Country Day School, Pacific Ridge School, The Bishop's School, Soille San Diego Hebrew Day School, Warren Walker School, Halstrom Academy and San Diego Jewish Academy. WeCare events are hosted by one of the consortium schools and are free to the community. Topics revolve around how to raise thoughtful, self-reliant children who are able to handle peer and social pressure at various stages of life. WeCare events are free to the community.
