An Open Letter on Behalf of Independent Schools of New England,
We, the heads of independent schools, comprising 178 schools in the New England region, stand in solidarity with our students and with the families of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The heart of our nation has been broken yet again by another mass shooting at an American school. We offer our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those who died and are grieving for the loss of life that occurred.
The Spring 2018 Park Parent features stories about the new eighth grade social studies course, partner classes between older and younger students, a true "behind-the-scenes" tour of Park's amazing theater program, two views from the Library and Park's ties to the Winter Olympics, just to name a few!

Imagine a simple framework that helps you raise empathetic and skillful kids. The Collaborative Problem Solving approach, an evidence-based model developed by the Think:Kids program at MGH, brings out the best in both you and your child and builds skills such as flexibility, frustration tolerance, and problem-solving.
Please join us for the All School Evening, and let us know if you need child care. You are welcome even if you don’t RSVP, but we do need to plan in advance for childcare providers so that we can provide the appropriate number of adults per child.
