US Students Support #BeTheGeneration

“We have the opportunity to make a big impact for the future,” Director of Community Engagement Kevin Dunn says to a group of roughly 50 Upper School students outside the weight room.

The students––and a few faculty––are gathered together to participate in the annual AIDS Walk around Parker’s Linda Vista Campus. 

Scientific Measurement with a Narrative Twist

“We have just crash-landed on another planet…,” reads the prompt to introduce Lauren St-John Lopez’s lesson to her Grade 5 Science students. “We do not know which plants are safe, but we have some tricks to find out which are safe to use.”

The creative, science fiction-based narrative is intended to engage the Lower School students and get them excited about what are routine––albeit important skills––to learn for young scientists.

Parker Will Never Forget

Two days after the 20th Anniversary of the September 11 Terrorist Attacks, Francis Parker School Middle and Upper School students, along with faculty and staff, gathered below the flag pole on the School’s Linda Vista Campus for a memorial ceremony. Slowly and silently, the School community congregated in the spaces around A Building for what is an annual tradition on campus.  

Parker Welcomes Back Fans with 'Athletic Palooza'

Francis Parker School welcomed back fans of all ages during the Inaugural Parker Palooza event last Friday evening. Sponsored by the Parker Athletic Department, the event featured a live DJ, food trucks, and even free churros. More than 500 brown and gold-clad fans enjoyed time catching up with family and friends and brought a healthy dose of cheer to two athletic events––a Girls Volleyball game and a home football game, both against The Meadows School.

A Summer of Memories & Growth

In typical fashion, time flew by because we were all having so much fun! The 62nd Summer at Parker has come and gone. What’s left is the plethora of memories created and the tremendous growth of the program. More than 700 students living in 96 different zip codes attended camp this summer.
