PlaygroupThe Student Visit/Shadow Day
A Play Group is our way of getting to know new applicants to JK–1st grade. We invite about 10 applicants at a time to come to Parker in the afternoon for an hour to participate in activities in our classroom and interact with our classroom teachers. When possible, we will invite your child to attend a Play Group on the same date as other applicants who are enrolled in his/her preschool. Applicants to JK, SK and 1st Grade will be invited to attend a student playgroup assessment, which takes place sometime between December and February. Invitations and additional details will be emailed to applicant families prior to their visit date.
is a “research” day for the student. This is a great opportunity to explore the experience of a being Parker student, observe and participate in classes, talk with teachers, sample the cafeteria fare, meet new friends, perhaps say hello to old friends and ask questions.
Applicants to Grades 2–5 will be invited to complete a Student Visit/Shadow Day. Invitations and additional details will be emailed to applicant families on a rolling basis, as we become aware of enrollment opportunities.
