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.
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). About 70 loaves are donated as take home gifts for guests of the Allston-Brighton Food Pantry's Thanksgiving supper. The other loaves (~ 90 last year) were donated for the Thanksgiving meals of the residents of the Boston Housing Authority (BHA), a key provider of housing options for low and moderate-income residents.
