Chop-a-thon

Each year, the Park School community comes together to chop vegetables for the Pine Street Inn, Boston's largest shelter for homeless men and women. Families and the PA donate vegetables, which are washed, peeled, chopped and snapped throughout the day. This year we delivered 836 pounds of vegetables to Pine Street, contributing to the 2,900 meals served daily. 

For questions, please contact any of the Co-Chairs, Susan Boney, Lars Liebisch or Jessica Scherer

Parent Socials and New Parent Dinners

The PA hosts fall gatherings by division to welcome new parents to the School and introduce them to the community.  The PA also organizes social gatherings throughout the year for parents to get to know each other and build community.  

Cradles to Crayons

The PA's Community Service Committee organizes a school-wide clothing drive each spring to benefit Cradles to Crayons, a local organization serving homeless and low-income children.  Pre-K and K students and their parents and teachers help sort the clothing and learn about giving back.

Pumpkin Bread Drive

The PA's Community Service Committee orchestrates our annual Pumpkin Bread Drive which brings the school community together to bake delicious bread (and Park faculty members also wrap the loaves).  The loaves (157 this year) were donated to the Allston-Brighton Food Pantry and to the Boston Housing Authority (BHA), a key provider of housing options for low and moderate-income residents.

On behalf of our service partners, the Community Service Committee extends a warm thank you to our generous school community!
