The Park School Time Capsule

To celebrate the move to Goddard Avenue and the construction of our current campus, students, teachers, and administrators at The Park School during the academic year 1970-71 placed a message in The Time Capsule with the hope that every 50 years it would be opened, enjoyed, added to, and resealed.
 

On September 28, 2021, The Time Capsule was opened by Head of School Scott Young with students, faculty/staff, and alumni in attendance – it was an exciting moment in Park’s history!

Click the photos below to explore some of the contents of Park’s 1971 time capsule and, if you were a Park student during the 1970-71 school year, be sure to let us know so that we can send you the note that you wrote 50 years ago!

Alumni Classes of 1971-1981, request your note from Park's Time Capsule below:

Park Spirit Day! 

On September 28, Park also celebrated Spirit Day, and the whole community was awash in green and white to mark the School's 50th Anniversary on Goddard Avenue. Everyone enjoyed cupcakes and hot chocolate, and alumni from the 1970's, three former Heads of School, and the whole Upper Division came together to witness Scott Young share treasures from the time capsule.

Valuing Community: Meg Lloyd '98

If you attend a sports game at Park, you’ll undoubtedly see students receiving guidance and encouragement as they huddle around their coach. Moments like these had a lasting impact on Meg Lloyd ’98, who now coaches students of her own. Meg is the Dean of Students and an English teacher at Cardigan Mountain School in Canaan, New Hampshire. She is currently a soccer coach and has coached ice hockey in the past. “I teach and I coach,” Meg says, “because I love sharing what I loved doing.”

Growing Up at Park: Alex '13 and Lanie '16 Cherry

Alex and Lanie Cherry both arrived at Park as tiny PreK students and so Park was where they found their first friends and their earliest mentors. Both grew as exceptional scholars on a journey that led them both to the Ivy League—Alex to Princeton, and Lanie to Brown—and they both reflect on the value of their Park athletic and Physical Education experience in helping support their way forward.

Coming Home to Park: Dana Welshman-Studley '85, Amy Saltonstall '87, and Merrill Hawkins '96

Park students learn what it means to show up with your best for Park under the guidance of coaches who, as Park alumni themselves, benefited from these same lessons growing up. Park taught them how to work hard, play fair, honor their teammates, and to be gracious in victory and in defeat. Now, they pass these essential values along to the next generations.

The Power of Personal Energy: George Fulton '17

When George Fulton ’17 looks back on his Park athletics experience, he remembers “a lot of winning, and that was fun!” But what resonates most strongly was the team culture he enjoyed, something he feels really sets Park apart. “It’s the best team environment I’ve been a part of, even to this day. I loved the fun-natured, healthy team environment. That’s the most important thing.” He loved the fact that he and his buddies played together on teams across all three seasons, often with the same coach. He joined the soccer team because his cousin Oscar Burns wanted him to help the team, and Oscar, in turn, played lacrosse because George wanted him to help out there. “We came to understand that the expectation was that everyone chips in, everyone supports the community as a full participant,” he says.

A Park Portrait: Tenzin Dawa Thargay '11 Skillful Communicator

As a sixth grader, I distinctly recall sharing my “Name Story” and Tibetan heritage with the whole school during Morning Meeting. That experience helped develop my passion for public speaking, while Park’s emphasis on accepting and appreciating different cultures naturally guided me to a career in international affairs. Studying and speaking with my foreign counterparts in their own languages is a powerful way to show respect for their cultures.”

As a diplomat serving the State Department in Vietnam, Tenzin draws on this foundation as he works to represent and promote U.S. foreign policy abroad.

Learning The Balance of Work, Life, and Sport: Jacob Aduama '07

If Park had an Athletics Hall of Fame, Jacob would surely be part of it. He is among the Park athletes who have gone on to play sports at the Division 1 level in college, and continues to play soccer semi-professionally. But while his athletics accomplishments are extraordinary, he also exemplifies the values underscoring Park’s mission to cultivate the “whole child”: well-rounded students who understand who they are, who discover their passions, find their voice, and combine these experiences to make thoughtful, well-informed choices.

They are a wonderful collaboration between Ms. Zhou’s Mandarin students in Grades 6-8, Ms. Hamilton in the Makerspace, and Park alumnus Andy Li ’04. Read more.
