  • Thanksgiving Feast

    With the bustling Holiday season upon us and our calendars quickly reaching capacity with festivities, Park paused to share in a family-style Thanksgiving meal and to recount the many things we have to be grateful for!  We kicked things off with an Indigenous Land Acknowledgment that recognized and showed respect for Indeginious Peoples traditional stewardship of the land we now occupy and that they will forever have an enduring relationship with. While each table discussed what we are thankful for, our Seniors served a feast with all the trimmings!  From PreK - Grade 12, members from our student body expressed gratitude for visiting Grandma, clean water, the arts, accepting communities and many other things. There was an abundance of food and displays of gratitude and for that, we are thankful! 
  • Thanksgiving Assembly

    On Tuesday, November 26, the musical gifts of our students took center stage at our annual Thanksgiving Concert! Each participant of the various Chorus, Orchestra, Band, Jazz and Singing groups masterfully performed their arrangements filling the Rich Activity Center with the sounds of many of our favorite songs, both contemporary and traditional.  Their talents and preparedness from several months of practice was enjoyed by all as they ushered us into the Holiday Season!  The concert was bookended by the Senior Class Pie Auction where bids were placed on a wide array of the sweet treats found on most tables this time of year and the Junior Class Pancake Brunch where many families, faculty and staff gathered to partake in the classic brunch before departing for Thanksgiving Break!
