Jump-a-thon pledges due Jan 8

The Parker Road Jump-A-Thon pledge collection deadline has been extended to Friday, Jan 8. Your donations support current programs in our classrooms, such as the student-favorite Music and Movement, and several new programs for 2016 including Bugs Works and Science Around You.  Thank you for your continued generosity!

Join us for the Jump-a-Thon!

The JUMP-A-THON is one of Parker Road’s biggest fundraisers of the school year! The children raise money by receiving pledges for how many jumps they can accomplish in 30 seconds (e.g., if Joey is sponsored 25 cents per jump and completes 50 jumps, he raises $12.50). Most children average 40-60 jumps. Pledge sheets to record sponsors and amounts pledged were sent home in your child’s backpack this week. Pledge sheets and donations will be collected a few weeks after the JUMP-A-THON.

Every child enrolled at Parker Road Preschool, regardless of whether they commit to raising money, is included in the JUMP-A-THON. Each child will receive a medal for their accomplishment.

Families are invited to come to school on the day of the JUMP-A-THON and cheer on their children. It is a fun and exciting event!

Fun at the Fall Social!!

Saturday was a beautiful day for the Parker Road Fall Social! We had lots of families join us to play with friends on the playground and have fun making fall crafts and scarecrows. We enjoyed some healthy snacks, played games, and planted mums to decorate our buildings. Thank you to everyone for making it a such a fun day!! We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful volunteers who donated their time to make sure everyone had a great time!! A special thank you to Papa’s Hardware on Route 9 in Shrewsbury for their generous donation of potting soil and mums, and to Wegmans in Northborough for their generous donation of apples and paper goods.

Join us for the Fall Social

The Parker Road Preschool PTO invites you to join us for the Fall Social!  The Fall Social will be held at Saturday October 10th from 10:00am until 11:30am, on the playground at 15 Parker Road. In the event of rain, the Fall Social will be held on Saturday October 17th.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other Parker Road families, while exploring the playground, having fun with fall games and crafts, and enjoying a healthy snack. Bring the whole family to join in the fun!

We will also work together making scarecrows to display at Parker Road and Wesleyan Terrace.  **Start saving your recyclable plastics bags (from Target, grocery stores, etc). We will be going green by using these bags to stuff our scarecrows, and then recycling the materials after the event. **

We are in need of volunteers for short shifts of set-up, clean-up, and activity centers. We would also appreciate contributions to our scarecrows! Please access the link below to sign up for these opportunities:
