Thank you to the entire Park community - students, teachers, and parents - for making the 2018 Chop-A-Thon such a success! Not even a mid-morning fire drill could dampen the enthusiasm of our many volunteers! Families donated 886 pounds of vegetables (surpassing last year's record of 736 pounds) which were washed, peeled, and chopped throughout the day. (Click here for photos) Chop-A-Thon benefits Pine Street Inn, a shelter serving homeless men and women. The fresh veggies we delivered will help provide more than 3000 plated meals. And, the 119 pounds of compost we generated will help Park's gardens grow.

Red Curtain Drama:A Showcase of Original and Published Monologues and Scenes
Friday 11/16/2018, 7pm • Saturday 11/17/2018, 2pm
This fall, The Players in the Park have collaborated together to write, choose, rehearse, and perform a collection of monologues and scenes from contemporary literature, classic plays, and their own imaginations. This ensemble-driven, process-based, low-tech showcase will feature actors from Grades VI-VIII. With a focus on acting and varying genres, Red Curtain will have you pondering, laughing, wondering, and marvelling at the power of words. We hope you’ll join us for a showcase of multiple stories, perspectives, writers, and talents!
