Here is a truth: Great institutions have strong enduring identities.
Great institutions have abiding identities because people actively link the past and the future with profound cultural values that resonate with deep meaning and a vital sense of purpose for the people who
comprise the life of the institution in the present.
At Francis W. Parker School, we know that the bridge between the past and the future is built on the
special, creative blend of tradition and innovation that students, educators and parents cultivate through
their relationships with each other and the ideas and values that they encounter each day.
The opening of Parker’s new Diane and David B Heller Auditorium during the 2008–09 school year is
a beautiful example of the school’s commitment to preserve and nurture a tradition of innovation in the
present. The new auditorium is both expansive and intimate, allowing us to be together for Morning Ex,
dramatic and musical performances, public speakers and town meetings, all in one space, as a complete
community and in the warm embrace of a model home.
The auditorium serves as a center not only for so much of Parker’s life but also as an emerging center for the cultural and educational life of Chicago and the broader world.
Balancing tradition and innovation is no easy matter. It requires open, thorough conversation that is
informed by a democratic appreciation that good ideas can come from all kinds of places in and around
our school community. It requires an innovative attitude that I can say is shared by so many throughout
the school community, from the Board of Trustees to the administration, from students to alumni, from the
staff and teachers to the parents. It is this desire to bring the best thinking possible, in the best interest
of educating students in accord with our mission, that takes place daily at Parker.

As human beings, we seek the comfort of the known as well as the energy of pursuing the novel.
Whether it is revising administrative processes or rethinking how we educate students about the ancient
Greeks, or integrating newer technologies into the curriculum, or supporting newer understandings about
how students learn in a wide variety of ways, or encouraging the success of new student initiatives such
as the Fourth Wall student theatre group, the Robotics Club, Model UN and more, Parker is at its best
when aspects of our past are experienced in the present in ways that are alive and pulsating with energy,
clarity and commitment.
This is the Parker way. This is who we are. This is our identity as a strong, enduring and innovative
school, and I am most grateful to all in our school community who, in so many ways, support the life and
mission of Francis W. Parker School.

CONTENTS
As president of the Board of Trustees, I am proud to report that the 2008–09 academic year was fiscally
sound for Francis W. Parker School. We continue to operate with a balanced budget of more than $24
million, maintain a remarkable physical facility and carefully plan for the future of “our model home.” We
are very grateful to our incomparable faculty and administration, unflagging volunteers, devoted parents
and enthusiastic alumni who make this school possible.
This was also a challenging year for Parker. At the outset of the economic crisis in the fall, the
administration and the board developed contingency plans to implement both for the rest of the year and
for the next several years. We did so with an eye on maintaining educational programming excellence while
controlling expenses and providing additional financial aid funding for current families, should that be necessary as the full impact of the crisis unfolded.
As we planned for the most difficult economic times that most of us had ever experienced, we also
had much to celebrate. This year marked another milestone in our capital campaign. We closed the fiscal
year having raised more than $68 million and having collected more than $36 million. Our annual fundraising,
which we feared would suffer as it has for many Chicago institutions, virtually reached our budgeted goals.
This was a tribute to the commitment of many in our community. Our thanks go to this year’s Cooke &
the Colonel Scholarship Dinners co-chairs, Jeanette Sublett and Joanne Nemerovski, as well as the chairs
of the Parent Annual Giving Program: Al Bennett, Ellen Block, Kelly Cassidy and Jonathan Marks ’82.
This year we officially concluded 14 years of rebuilding our entire campus. The culmination of this effort
took place in the spring, when we celebrated the opening of our magnificent new Diane and David B Heller
Auditorium. While some would assert that “bricks and mortar” do not a great institution make, our renovated
campus, with all its new classrooms, science labs and music classrooms, visual art and drama areas designed
to meet the needs of these disciplines, certainly enhances the wonderful interactions between our students
and faculty. The auditorium is a facility that not only allows everyone who presents a Morning Ex to be seen
and heard, but, for the first time in decades, brings the entire Parker community together to enjoy these
events in one place.

There is still more work to be done to ensure the future of our beloved school. You can read the names of
those who have contributed through June 30, 2009 beginning on page 36. The generosity and commitment
of our families never ceases to amaze me! We look forward to continued communication about the bold
vision for the school’s future and encouraging the participation of every member of our community to
make certain that vision becomes a reality.
Finally, this year marked my last as president of the board, a position it has been my privilege to hold for
the past five years. Parker is extremely fortunate to have on its board a talented, committed and selfless
group of individuals who want to do what is best not only for current students but for future generations of
Parker students. This past year, we carefully examined the best way to do that in the context of the economic
climate. The board, along with Principal Dan Frank, will continue to carefully monitor the economic situation
and have contingency plans to deal with further dislocations should they occur. We are also fortunate
that Jonathan Marks ’82, a Parker alumnus and current parent (with his wife Stephanie, of three Lower
School students), will be our new board president. Those of us who have served for the past decade mark
this as a transition of leadership to the next generation of board members and are thrilled that we have
such a “deep bench” of younger members to assume the board’s myriad challenges. Jonathan has not
only a deep understanding of Parker’s mission and the complexities of the institution, but also a passion
for Parker that will serve the school well.
I have been at Parker as a parent for more than 20 years (consecutively) and an at-large trustee for almost
a decade. Our family treasures our Parker experiences, and, while we all miss the day-to-day connection
with the school community, we will never feel disconnected from it. I hope that all those families who are
part of the Parker community will continue to support the school, as our family will, as it completes the
Founding Our Second Century Campaign and secures its future in this seemingly insecure world.

uring the 2008–09 academic year, the most significant event impacting our entire community—from
D
JK through 12th grade students, from faculty to staff, from parents to alumni—was the opening of
our newly renovated Diane and David B Heller Auditorium. Once again, our entire school community can
gather under one roof for Morning Ex, classroom presentations, guest speakers, student performances and
much more. The new auditorium has been named after Diane and David B Heller to honor their generosity
and commitment to Francis W. Parker School and the Founding Our Second Century Campaign. The Heller
family has been integral to the school for more than seven decades, and they have been instrumental in
helping secure Parker’s future as well as inspiring others to give.
From its opening in early March through Commencement in June, the auditorium welcomed several
special guests.
Grand Opening Celebration: March 2, 2009
This event was a wonderful opportunity for Parker families and friends to gather and celebrate our spectacular
new auditorium as the school hosted a dedication to thank the Heller family for their generosity in making
our new auditorium possible. The evening included student performances, tours of the new space and a
reception. To view photos of the Grand Opening Celebration, click here.
Dr. Paul Sereno Lecture: March 23, 2009
Parker’s 2008–09 Robert A. Pritzker Visiting Scientist•Inventor•Engineer in Residence was worldrenowned paleontologist Dr. Paul Sereno. In addition to his interactions with students, Dr. Sereno gave a
public presentation about his most recent discovery in the Sahara. For information on the program and

Delfos Danza Contemporánea: March 31, 2009
Recognized as one of Latin America’s most important contemporary dance companies, Delfos Danza
Contemporánea from Mexico made its Chicago debut in April at The Dance Center of Columbia College
Chicago. While in Chicago, the company participated in several lecture/demonstrations in Parker classrooms and gave two special performances in the new auditorium: one for Parker students and one for
nearly 400 Chicago Public School students. For more information about Delfos Danza Contemporánea, click here.
Francine C. Rosenberg Lecture Series: April 20, 2009
The stage of the new auditorium has been named the Francine C. Rosenberg Stage to honor the memory
of one of Parker’s most dedicated and effective volunteers. As an exceptionally competent and purposeful
leader for Parker, Francine had a far-reaching impact on the school and on those who had the privilege
of knowing her. For the past 11 years, Parker has welcomed a guest to talk to the community under the
auspices of the Francine C. Rosenberg Lecture Series. This year’s speaker was Sir Ken Robinson, a 2008
Peabody Award winner, who spoke on the topic, “The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes
Everything.” For more information about Robinson, click here.
In addition to these momentous events inside the school walls, Parker as an institution was
represented at two important national conferences:
■
Principal Daniel B. Frank, Learning Resource Department Chair Allison Kimball, Upper School Learning
Resource teacher Karen Swidler and Intermediate and Middle School Head Tom Rosenbluth spoke at
Yale’s Center for Dyslexia and Creativity Conference. The conference focused on ways of supporting
students with dyslexia in Independent schools as well as current research and implications.
■
A number of Parker faculty members participated in the annual National Association of Independent
Schools conference, entitled Schools of the Future: Sailing the Winds of Change. Parker's Upper School
student jazz band Grooveyard performed at the event. For more about the conference, click here.

he children and faculty in the Lower School enjoyed a rich, vibrant year in 2008–09. One main priority
for the year was to reflect on and refine our curriculum, particularly in the area of literacy. Lower and
Intermediate School Curriculum Coordinator Barbara Hunt facilitated many conversations with faculty
throughout the year. As a result, we have been able to gain further consistency within and across grade
levels and ensure that our curriculum reflects current research and best practices.
Another goal was to explore expanding our Spanish instruction throughout the Lower and Intermediate
Schools. We are thrilled to expand Spanish instruction into 3rd, 4th and 5th grades in the 2009–10
academic year. Our new Spanish teacher, Dan Baltierra, and Barbara Hunt helped us research best
practices and outline a plan that will bring this important program into these three grades. Baltierra used
the Spanish tradition of Las Posadas in the SK–2nd grade classrooms; to read more about this project,
click here.
Students and teachers took full advantage of our presidential election last fall. Every grade level studied
the election process and watched the historic inauguration as a community. Many classes used this event
to help children further understand the democratic process. One SK class learned to vote to select their
new class pet. A 1st grade election took place to choose their favorite literary character (click here to read
about it). The class divided into three groups and each came up with a “party” name and chose a candidate
from a different book. The students discussed the characteristics of their candidates; made posters,
information sheets and flags; and even held lively debates. To culminate the project, they held a mock
election with their 1st and 2nd grade peers, their 5th grade buddies and teachers from throughout the school.
As Parker strives to “cultivate in its students qualities of character and citizenship,” we work to nurture
a sense of environmental stewardship. The Science and Art Departments collaborated on several
continued
11
endeavors this year, including a Morning Ex to share the work with “fast plants” that many grade levels
studied across the school. We had a full week of Earth Day events, including an “off the grid” classroom
in the courtyard. At our annual JK and SK Spring Fling, teachers led an activity that had children decorating
reusable lunch bags to bring to school next year.
Every year, we strive to enhance and refine our Central Topic curriculum, holding on to rich traditions and
making changes or additions to keep our studies relevant. One 2nd grade class became interested in learning
more about cranes through their study of Japan. Second grade teacher Kathy Wild led her class in an origami
project to help bring good luck to this endangered species. These 2nd graders taught students and adults of
all ages to fold the cranes and donated their large collection to the International Crane Foundation in Wisconsin.
For a few more examples of innovative Lower School activities, click on the links below.
Accomplished Professional Inspires SK Artists
One of the many unique aspects of a Parker education is the flexibility to take advantage of unanticipated
opportunities for new learning experiences. SK teacher Johanna Davis had one such opportunity this
spring, when Charles (’78) and Julie Ruder San Fratello (’80), parents of her student Nathalie, suggested
that their friend, professional artist David Lee Csicsko, visit her class. For more about Csicsko's visit with
the SK, click here.
Third Grade Pioneer Audio Projects
In their study of pioneers, 3rd grade students learned to expand their thinking to include individuals
throughout history noted for being the first to do something important or special, including Martin Luther King,
Jr., Ben Franklin and Helen Keller, to name a few. For more about this classroom project, click here.

his was an interesting year in the Intermediate and Middle Schools. In some ways, it was a year of
refinement and experimentation: we adapted some traditions, such as the 5th grade Medieval Fair,
to best fit the needs of the students and reinvigorate the event. Altering traditions is always tricky business,
even at a progressive school such as Parker, because the pressure exerted by the expectations of each
group of students and parents, combined with the high standards from past years, creates a weight that
can be overwhelming. Nonetheless the faculty did make some changes, and the results were encouraging
and enlivening.
The 5th grade has studied the Middle Ages for many years and often performs a play or series of
skits focusing on a particular theme, such as a cheerful examination of life during the plague years. These
performances are frequently very interesting but present a range of challenges, from writing a script with
54 parts to running rehearsals that equally engage all involved. This year the team invited the students to
research any aspect of the Middle Ages that interested them. We had experts on blood-letting, siege
engines, stained glass, royal intrigue, mapmaking and dance. The students and art teachers then transformed
their rooms into medieval towns or castles. The students practiced staying in character and each actually
took on the persona of an imagined tradesman, dancer or zealous blacksmith. The visiting audiences were
transported to the world of the Middle Ages by 54 simultaneous portrayals of medieval people going
about their lives. It was fun and engaging for the audience and for the students, who discovered a way to
dramatically share their knowledge and validate, equally, the work and voice of every student. The refinements
were a huge success. For photos of the 5th grade medieval dubbing ceremony, click here.
Similarly, the Middle School faculty wanted to make some changes to our Community Service
Program. For many years, Middle School students have spent eight half days each year volunteering at
20 different sites, such as Christopher House, Chicago Children’s Museum, Carole Roberts House, Ronald
McDonald House, Kidney Dialysis Centers and other locations. We remain committed to the importance
of this activity and believe it lies close to the heart of the school’s mission. But we also wanted to inject
new life into the program. Some wanted to consolidate our efforts into fewer days to make a big difference

on one project; others wanted a whole grade to work together or to be able to work with different combinations
of students. We decided to devote two community service mornings at the end of the year to raising
money and awareness about the lack of access to fresh water facing many people. Partnering with an
organization called H20-School to School, we raised more than $2,000 to help provide a bathroom and
drinking water for the Mahweh School in Uganda. Our students obtained sponsors as they rotated through
a series of activities, such as a water-carrying obstacle course or painting wall panels with a water theme.
Click here for photos. The theme of water access emerged in the curriculum of several classes as well.
More than anything, we learned, in a positive and optimistic way, that we can actually make a concrete
difference in the world and that some problems that seem intractable can be solved by small groups of
people acting purposefully to make the world a better place.
I find the vision and courage of teachers to re-imagine aspects of their curriculum to be inspiring, creative and continually invigorating.

Visiting Storyteller Inspires 5th Grade Writers
Writing plays a central role in Parker’s 5th grade curriculum. Storyteller, author and artist Susan O’Halloran
visited 5th grade classrooms to share her expertise and inspire Parker’s emerging writers. For more
about O'Halloran's visit, click here.
Sixth Grade Story Theater a Hit!
Another flourishing Parker tradition since 1997, which celebrates Asian history, culture and literature, is the
6th grade presentation of Story Theater, held May 28 in the Auditorium. For more about the presentation,
click here.
Class of 2014 presents An Encyclopedia of an Extraordinary Seventh Grade
Seventh grade English teacher Paige Sweet led her young writers on a transformative journey this
academic year. Beginning the year with an introduction to Parker parent Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s memoir
Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life, students immediately connected with her clever and witty chronicling of
what may seem—to the naked eye—to be an existence of the mundane. For more about the Encyclopedia
project, click here.

Wordspeak in the 8th Grade
David Fuder’s 8th grade English classes recently finished a creative project that combined students’
artistry and poetry skills. Students selected words that were filled with memory, meaning or mystery and
brought these words to life in visually sparkling ways. For more about this class project, click here.
Middle School Science Olympiad Team Closes Their Most Successful Season Yet!
Science Olympiad, a nationwide competition that invites middle and high school students to tackle science
topics and challenges outside their normal curriculum, is carving out a space for itself in Parker’s Middle
School. For more about the team's accomplishments, click here.
Eighth Grade Math and Science Curriculum
Engineering Challenges are part of the new curricular unit in 8th grade science and math that places an
emphasis on engineering. For more about this program, click here.
Presidential Election Promotes Citizenship at all Grade Levels

ur main, overarching goal in the Upper School in 2008–09 was to spend more time as a faculty
actively discussing and exploring ways in which interdisciplinary work can continue to strengthen
and enrich the educational experience of our students. Because teachers in the Upper School are affiliated
by academic discipline and not by grade level, we have to work especially hard to make sure that we are
adequately and consistently exploring how to collaborate on improving the way students experience the
curricula on a holistic and developmental level.
To this end, several of our faculty meetings this year were spent in grade-level groups with teachers
sharing everything from course content to learning goals and objectives to assessment and evaluation
methods—all to provide faculty who taught at each grade level with a better understanding of potential
overlaps to capitalize on, connections to develop further and opportunities to live up to our mission of developing “citizens who, with their teachers, connect the experience of the classroom with life throughout
the school, our broader society and the wider world.” The cross-disciplinary work allows the student to
see and experience real interconnectedness and experience more meaningful reflection, learning and insight.
This work has resulted in many examples of innovative and exciting instruction. In 9th grade, the Integrated
Science class has the central theme of sustainability and environmental responsibility; biology, chemistry and
physics instruction are all developed in association with hands-on, lab-based learning and experimentation
to get students to think more critically about the world around them and their place in it. When these teachers
began more structured conversations with our 9th grade history teachers about their curriculum—
including the topic of “Human Needs, Utilitarianism and the Natural Environment” in the Themes in World
History course—there was a sense of excitement and opportunity about how their curricula could mutually
support, expand and enrich each other. As a culminating joint experience, the teachers organized a trip
to a local waste facility to learn about and discuss the principles of waste management from an ecological
as well as an ethical perspective. We are discussing other cooperative ventures for future years.

Another example of teachers working together across disciplines was spurred on by the excitement
over the Presidential election this past fall. Teachers from the English, History and Math Departments, in
conjunction with our Community Action Office, created opportunities for students to learn and talk about
the election from a variety of perspectives (historical/sociopolitical, statistical, journalistic) and participate
in such activities as creating an electoral politics museum, volunteering at campaign offices or publishing their
own survey data. Students even got involved across divisions through an active collaboration between
seniors in our Participatory Democracy class and Bev Greenberg’s 1st graders, who were just learning
about the relationship between voting and democracy. To read more about this venture, click here.
We greatly look forward to continued work and further progress in collaborative teaching. As a progressive
institution, we are fully invested in deepening student knowledge by systematically building on learning in
multiple contexts and strengthening our instructional program coherence.

Parker Students Shine at Robotics Regional Competitions—On to the Nationals!
The All-City Chicago Knights Robotics Team, including five Parker Upper School students, had a busy start
in 2009, reaching out to the community and competing regionally to earn accolades and a spot at the World
Championship competition in Atlanta in April. For more about the team's accomplishments, click here.
A Visit to the Modern Muslim World
What’s the best way of helping two cultures better understand each other? By bringing them together, of
course. And this is just what history teacher Kevin Conlon decided to do, bringing his Modern Muslim
World students face-to-face with students from the Islamic Foundation School in Villa Park. For more
about this exchange, click here.
Civil War Debates in the Upper School
Wanting his U.S. History students to do more than just read about the Civil War and the injustices of slavery,
Andrew Bigelow initiated a series of debates, assigning students to a specific side of four different groups:
the Secessionist branch of the South, the Nationalist branch of the South, the Abolitionist branch of the
North and the Free-Soilers branch of the North. For more about this classroom activity, click here.

As part of its mission to cultivate responsible citizens who make significant contributions to
their communities, Parker offers students opportunities for service at all grade levels.
Lower School/Intermediate School
Teachers, students and parents in Parker’s Junior Kindergarten classroom worked with their 2nd grade counterparts
to conduct a winter clothing drive. The donations of previously used coats, boots, hats and mittens brought in
from students’ homes combined with unclaimed items from Parker’s Lost and Found were brought to donation
sites just in time for the December holiday season.
Parker’s 3rd grade Animal Ranger program attracted large numbers of students interested in playing a primary
role in caring for animals at school. Rangers came to school before classes to help feed and care for animals
used in Lower and Intermediate School science classes and helped younger students who came to the morning
open science lab learn about the class pets and how to properly handle them.
Fourth grade students played a hands-on role in ensuring their younger peers arrived at their classrooms
safely each day through Parker’s long-standing K-walker program. Each day, a group of 4th graders reports to
drop-off and pick-up locations to safely escort Lower School students from their cars to the classrooms and
back at the end of the day.
Middle School
Students in 6th–8th grades learned about themselves and others by working in different neighborhoods and
institutions. Choosing one of 15 site options, students had the opportunity to organize activities, provide assistance
and implement solutions to real-life problems. As a result, students strengthened their self-esteem, solidified their
capacity to feel empathy for others and deepened their understanding of what it means to be responsible citizens
in a democratic society.
Students working at Casa Central Adult Wellness Center and Child Development Program used their Spanish
language skills with both elderly and young Chicagoans. They danced, engaged in arts and crafts activities
and interviewed seniors to get to know them better. In Casa Central’s Head Start program, students assisted
teachers, read to younger children and interacted with them during play time. Later, Parker students captured
their experience in words and pictures and made a beautiful memory book as a gift for Casa Central.

To increase students’ awareness and understanding of homelessness in general, and in Chicago in particular,
one student group took to the streets. They gathered food to donate to shelters, served meals at shelters and
engaged with those who currently struggle or have struggled with homelessness. Especially meaningful to students
was making sack lunches at the school and distributing them directly to those in need on Chicago’s streets.
Through these interactions, students became more aware of stereotypes and misinformation that exists,
allowing them to think more critically about the issue of homelessness.
Parker students served as facilitators between preschoolers from the Jewish Reconstructionist Day School
and members of the Council for the Jewish Elderly Adult Day Services Center. This intergenerational program aims
to help participants understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses by working in triads on cooperative
projects. To better understand and appreciate the daily challenges confronting the elderly people they came to
know during the year, students attempted to simulate their challenges on a simple trip to the store: cataracts
were reproduced by wearing lab goggles smeared with Vaseline, students wore earplugs to decrease hearing
ability, and they donned mittens to replicate the loss of dexterity associated with arthritis. This firsthand
experience with reduced abilities they once took for granted helped students better grasp the difficulties
associated with getting older.
Upper School
Students at all grade levels got involved in campaigns and elections: 18 Parker students served as Election
Judges—one on the South Side handed then-Presidential candidate Barack Obama his ballot—and many
more campaigned for candidates for both the Presidential and the Congressional elections.
The 9th grade students chose from a range of groups, including Homecoming for Veterans, Conversation
Partners with Refugee Students, Theatre of Civil Rights, Nature Conservation and the Healthy Earth and Healthy
Selves partnership with 1st graders at Stockton Elementary. Students developed friendships with people of diverse
cultures, ages and backgrounds and learned about their city, one another and themselves.
Among the Social Arts Partnerships that 10th graders participated in:
■
Siddhartha Project with Orr Academy—creating shadow puppets and a gamelan orchestra, students adapted
and performed the story of Siddhartha at Intuit Museum for the public and Parker P.M. students.
■
Urban Dance Projex with Uplift Community Academy—facilitated by the hip hop group Kuumba Lynx, Parker
and Uplift students learned hip hop dance and poetry as a means of exploring justice and peace in the world
and in the self.

■
Theatre of Social Justice with Rudy Lozano Leadership Academy—facilitated by theatre artist Jasmin
Cardenas, Parker and Lozano students learned methods of Theatre of the Oppressed.
■
Mikva Challenge Issues to Action program—students developed action projects around the issue of
school closings in Chicago.
The 11th grade Community Connections offered students a variety of themes and issues to act
upon, including:
■
Creating alliances between straight and gay students
■
Environmental justice in Chicago
■
Homelessness
■
Parents Allied with Children and Teachers for Tomorrow (PACTT)
■
Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP)
■
Women in the world
For more about Community Connections, click here.
Independent Social Action Projects in 12th grade allowed students to develop projects around
their interests and concerns:
■
Leadership and Community Class—students actively participated in choosing the winner of this year’s
Susan F. Berkowitz Award for Outstanding Service to Children; worked with 10th graders on their
Issues to Action project, which won an award for Excellence in Research at the Mikva Civics Fair; and
participated in the Illinois Council of Students, drafting legislation advocating funding equality for all Illinois schools

■
Mikva Youth Council—the group developed participatory action research projects focused on adolescent
health in Chicago.
■
Chicago Youth Initiating Change—working with students from other Chicago schools, Karen Cuenca ’09
helped to organize the third annual Chicago Student Social Justice Expo, addressing issues such as
violence, environmental injustice, school closings and more.

P
arker’s athletics program is designed to provide all students in grades 6–12 with the opportunity to
participate on an interscholastic team. The program emphasizes the positive development of student
athletes and aims to help them maximize their athletic potential and understand the benefits of teamwork
while establishing lifelong habits of fitness.
Parker athletes learn self-confidence, discipline, teamwork and sportsmanship, while demonstrating
empathy and support for their teammates as they give their all in every practice and competition.
Parker fields 18 interscholastic teams in six sports during the fall season, 14 teams in three sports during
the winter season and 19 teams in five sports during the spring season.
Parker Celebrates an Impressive Fall Athletics Season
Francis W. Parker School enjoyed yet another successful fall athletics season, with more than 65 percent
of students in grades 6–12 participating. For highlights of the fall athletics season, click here.
Parker Athletes Play for a Cure
Parker’s Upper School athletes joined together in support of breast cancer awareness in October thanks
to the independent efforts of a single student athlete, senior Madeleine Chatz. During Homecoming/Reunion
Weekend 2008, Parker’s athletes competed in team colors accented with pink to show their unified support
for their peer’s initiative in raising breast cancer awareness and the importance of early detection. For more

Spring Athletics Wrap-Up
Despite the rainy weather during Parker’s spring athletics season, Upper and Middle School student
athletes made the most of every opportunity Mother Nature provided. Participation remained strong, with
more than half of students in grades 6–12 participating on one of the school’s baseball, soccer, softball,
tennis or track teams. For more highlights from the spring athletics season, click here.
Out of the Box: Parker Students Excel in Athletic Pursuits
Parker encourages its students to explore their interests and passions as they develop as individuals and
citizens. When these interests fall outside the scope of offerings available at the school, Parker students often
take the initiative to think “out of the box” and find an outlet for their personal success and satisfaction.
In doing so, they regularly achieve high levels of recognition and excellence. For more about students’
athletic accomplishments outside of Parker, click here.
Connecting the Classroom to the World
Parker faculty found ways for students to connect with their international
counterparts and make a difference despite geographical distances. Read

P
arents represent a vital component of the Parker community. The Parents’ Association, to which all
Parker parents automatically belong, serves as a link between parents and the Board of Trustees,
faculty and the administration. The Parents’ Association also promotes and supports parent volunteer
activities, educational programs and the financial well-being of the school. The Parents’ Association
consists of the Parents’ Committee, which serves as the connection between the school and home, and
the Parent Network, which facilitates communication between parents and supports them as they
encounter child development challenges.
As we complete our term as Co-Chairs of the Parents’ Association, we look back on the accomplishments of the past three years.
The Parents’ Association has developed an increasingly important link to the school’s administration.
Regular meetings with the Principal and Assistant Principal have provided us with a consistent opportunity
to represent and voice parents’ interests and concerns. We have actively participated in the ISACS evaluation
process; worked with administrators, staff and neighbors of the school to manage increased traffic and
parking congestion in the area surrounding the school; provided input on the hiring and orientation of the
new Lower School Head; supported student recruitment efforts in cooperation with the Admission Office;
and worked with administrators, faculty and staff to successfully adopt a school-wide Wellness Policy.
The Parents’ Association has emphasized open communication and dialogue between parents and the
school. The Association’s annual State of the School meetings have highlighted new programming in the
classrooms and kept parents up to date on developments throughout the school. During each of the past
three years, we have hosted an annual meeting to review and discuss the school’s budgeting process. These
meetings have enabled parents to review the school’s budget and provided an important opportunity for
parents to discuss the budget’s implications with members of the administration, Board of Trustees and
Business Office. Our monthly meetings, which are open to all parents, have featured presentations by
administrators, faculty, students, parents and outside speakers on a broad range of topics, including the
continued
23
work of the Diversity Support Council, school construction, new health initiatives by the school’s Counseling
and Community Health Department, a foreign exchange student’s experience at Parker and the Faculty
Workshop Day devoted to differences in learning style.
This past year, the Parents’ Association participated in discussions with administrators and the board
about ways to maintain the school’s mission while remaining fiscally responsible during the national economic
downturn. We are proud to report that the Parents’ Association drafted policy and approved the use of
its accumulated surplus funds to support an emergency fund for families requiring economic assistance
as a result of current conditions.
One of our greatest pleasures as Co-Chairs of the Parents’ Association has been working with the
incredible parents at Parker. We want to thank the countless parents, grandparents and friends who have given
their time, energy and expertise to Parker. Your assistance in the classroom and throughout the school has
broadened our children’s experiences and provided invaluable support to the faculty, staff and administration.
We are grateful for the opportunity to have served Parker as leaders of the Parents’ Association. It has
been an honor to work with the administration, faculty, staff and parents who have continually dedicated
themselves to enhancing our school community. We leave the Parents’ Association in good hands as we
welcome incoming leaders Diane Goodman and Keith Struve (pictured left).

Address to the Board of Trustees by Stephen Mrowiec ’09
It really is a distinct pleasure for me to come before you tonight and speak on behalf of the student body.
As you know, it has been my privilege this past year to serve in the role of Student Body President, a task
I have approached with the blend of gravity and enthusiasm that is, of course, necessary to that office.
Yet there was a time, not so long ago, when I was merely a young upstart of a board rep, nervously rapping
my sweaty fingers against the armrest of my corner seat in the Harris Center, my eyes darting around the
room as faces, familiar and unfamiliar, took their places for the first meeting of the 2006–2007 year. I look back
fondly on my days of attending Parker board meetings; I’ve never really gotten over the initial excitement
I felt at finally seeing how a school such as this one actually conducts its business—something that I find
to be one of the most fascinating aspects of private education. While that might not be an opinion shared
by every member of this community, and indeed I’ve had more than a few heated discussions with Mark
Aymar on the subject, the fact remains that without the contributions of time and effort made by each and
every one of you, the school simply could not function as it does. It has been a genuine honor to get to
know so many of you, and your sons and daughters, personally, particularly both Jerry and Kay, for whom
I wish only the best, as they, like me, move on to a new phase in their relationship with Parker, and I cannot
imagine what my time at this school would have been like if I had not done so.
The 2008–2009 school year was, for me at least, a period of transition—and, if I may say so, a particularly
successful transition at that. Like many of you, the students agonized over and ultimately celebrated the
eventual completion of the construction project that had colored some facet of each of their Parker
experiences for the last 14 years. Following paths forged initially by the dynamic work of our immediate
predecessors, my fellow students and I strove to develop creative solutions to the myriad unwieldy
inconveniences to our standard methods of operating that were the inevitable result of the unpredictable
and unavoidable march of progress. No longer able to take the availability of facilities, services or acoustical
equipment for granted, the student body remained ever patient and resourceful, with the result that the
continued
26
institution of Student Government, and indeed, all aspects of the student experience, remained not only
intact, but emerged from this period of turmoil with more vibrancy, and indeed more relevance, then ever
before. I am happy to say that the fledgling reforms of my diminutive predecessor (or is that predecessors?) have not been in vain, and I am confident that the day is not far off when even as venerable an
institution as Student Government will be able to hold its head aloft proudly, knowing that it is as up-todate as any aspect of our newly constructed facilities.
That we are indeed on the cusp of a new period of success for this institution I have no doubt, for as
Following is a list of colleges and
universities that members of Parker’s
class of 2009 are attending:
I led the assembly into the newly opened Diane and David B Heller Auditorium for the first time to hold
our weekly plenary meeting, I was presented with a sight that will no doubt continue to warm my heart during the many long New England winters that lie ahead for me. For, though the business of the meeting
was routine, and perhaps even tedious, the students still remained polite and respectful. There were no cat-

e can feel very proud that the Alumni Association has taken its appropriate position in the Parker
community. This has been accomplished by the dedication of a large number of alumni, the pro-
fessional support of the school’s Development and Alumni Office and financial support from the school.
Following is a recap of events and initiatives that the Alumni Association has generated and is
responsible for running, with the excellent support of our Development and Alumni Office. For photos of
these events, click on the links below.
FALL 2008
■
Homecoming/Reunion Weekend “Welcome Home” Cocktail Reception: Entering its fourth year,
this event has succeeded in attracting a significant number of alumni to the school all at once, more
than 200 each year. Previously, alumni might visit from out of town and never visit Parker, but this event
has welcomed them back and reminded them of their love for the school. Thanks to our event chair in
each year, Kim Kamin ’89, and, this year, Rachel Bradley ’89.
■
San Francisco and Los Angeles Regional Alumni & Friends Gatherings: These events offer our
West Coast alumni a chance to get together and reminisce about their Parker experiences. Typically 50–
75 alumni have attended. Thanks to San Francisco event chair Kim Kerbis ’81, Los Angeles host Rita
Stern ’73 and Los Angeles event chair Justine Amodeo ’79.
■
Post-Thanksgiving Gathering: This past year, event chair Jon Landan ’95 came up with the idea of
combining the Parker and Latin Thanksgiving events. The idea exceeded our wildest expectations with
approximately 500 attending, half from Parker. This event is primarily for our younger alumni, and we
hope it will continue to take place annually.

WINTER 2009
■
Financial Symposium: John Ettleson ’76, who has chaired this event each year, and William Blair &
Company hosted our second annual symposium "America's Changed Financial Landscape.” Although
the event has twice fallen on the coldest day of the winter, we have had about 75–100 in attendance
each year. This symposium has proved an excellent networking tool for our alumni in the financial
community. We hope in future years to have a little less exciting news to discuss.
■
Real Estate Symposium: New this year, "Real Estate Challenges and Opportunities," the brainchild of David
Kaplan ’97, was a great success with more than 80 alumni in attendance. We are very grateful to David
and his family for their leadership.
SPRING 2009
■
New York Regional Alumni & Friends Gathering: Welcoming about 70–90 alumni in each of the past
five years, this event owes much to the generosity of the Goodman family, which has allowed us to enjoy

remarkable venues at Rockefeller Center. Thanks also to event chair Stephanie Lieber ’94.
■
Chicago Alumni & Friends Gathering: Four years ago, we realized that our base of Chicago alumni
craved the chance to reunite with their fellow alumni as much as others around the country. Like our
Welcome Home Cocktail Reception in the fall, this event has attracted 200–250 alumni each year.
Thanks to our event chair for each of the years, Jennifer Oppenheimer ’91.
YEAR-ROUND COMMITTEES
During the past two years, we have launched two committees to intensify our fundraising efforts:
■
Reunion Gifts Committee: This committee’s mission is to make Parker reunions more like successful
college reunions that serve as fundraising platforms for their schools. We started by trying to get 100
percent participation from classes; this year we will be combining that goal with specific fundraising
goals, such as challenging the class celebrating its 20th reunion to raise $20,000. We know the love is
out there and we feel very strongly that reunions are an appropriate place to tap into that affection.

■
Alumni Campaign Gifts Committee: The mission of our newest committee is to target leadership
gifts from alumni for the current capital campaign, Founding Our Second Century, as well as endowment
and scholarship support. Thanks to chairs Harry Rosenberg ’78 and Laura Maloney ’89.
We would never have been able to accomplish all this without the excellent support of Assistant Director
of Development–Alumni Relations Sarah Wagoner and Director of Development Renée Ruffing, as well as
Principal Dan Frank ’74, who showed his commitment by attending every event.
The success of these events is also due in large measure to our event co-chairs (see list on page 32).
In addition, every event has scores of co-hosts, and though there are too many to mention, their involvement has been essential.
As I look back on this past year, I also thank the Alumni Association Executive Committee and Board of
Representatives, who have shown valuable dedication and worked hard to help us reach our goals (see

We have many other dreams about how to make the alumni community stronger. The only limitation
to making these dreams become a reality is your active support and involvement. We all have families,
jobs and other commitments that demand our time. Each of us has only so much time we can give to
the school we love. Please come join us and help keep Parker alive for the next 100 years.

By Andrea Kayne Kaufman, Parker parent
I
CONTENTS
am a Parker parent who has been suffering gladly from Parker Envy since my daughter started JK in
2001. My daughter is now in 7th grade, my son is in 5th grade, and my condition has only gotten
worse. Unlike my experiences in 7th and 5th grades, my children could not wait to get back to school;
they absolutely love Parker. Love is intrinsic to Colonel Parker’s concept of progressive education. He
encouraged teachers to bring out “the light of pleasure” in each student’s eyes. I see this light every year
on those special Parker days, whether it’s selling popcorn in JK for County Fair, spending the day in the
2nd grade Japanese tea room, Woodland People Day in 3rd grade, 4th grade Egyptian Museum, 5th
grade Dubbing Ceremony or my own 6th grader reciting a poem at Morning Ex. I also see the light every
day in how they learn at Parker. The way they learn math and reading and social studies and science is
so different than how I learned. They are engaged and inspired by reading primary sources and doing their own
investigations. They critically think instead of memorize. They acquire knowledge that is contextualized and
connected rather than isolated and arbitrary. One day this past summer, my son asked me for help on a
long division problem from his summer math packet, and I showed him the formula that I robotically
learned when I was in school. He asked me why I did it that way—what was the reasoning behind my
strategy. I had no answer. I was dumbfounded—of course, the Parker student always asks why.
I give to Parker because I wish I had the kind of education that encouraged me to ask why—that inspired
and engaged me in what I was learning. I give to Parker because I am grateful my kids are getting this
education and because I want to support others so that they can be inspired and engaged as well. I give
to Parker because, as an education professor as well as a parent, I know that this kind of engaging
education that fosters a love of learning is what all children need to thrive.

CONTENTS
he Founding Our Second Century Campaign is the most ambitious capital campaign in the history of
Francis W. Parker School. The Campaign seeks to raise $89 million, with the major funding objectives
of endowment growth and facility improvements. Thanks to the generosity of Parker alumni, parents,
grandparents and friends, Parker has raised more than 75 percent of this goal to date.
During the past year, the school celebrated the completion of all campus improvements, most significantly
the Diane and David B Heller Auditorium. Among our other renovations:
■
Suzanne Crown Goodman Science Wing
■
First floor north wing—Lower School shop, Middle and Upper School art and scene shop,
new dance studio, ceramics room, new small café meeting and performance space and new
administrative offices
■
Second floor north wing—new window seating and energy-efficient windows in the Kupcinet
Gallery, new instrumental/recording studio
■
Third floor north wing—new window seating and energy-efficient windows in the Middle and Upper
School Commons, new performing arts and TV studio, MIDI (musical instrument digital interface) lab
■
Fourth floor east wing
The Board of Trustees, the Campaign committees and the administration are deeply grateful to the Parker
community, especially students and faculty, for their patience and support throughout this process.
As we enter the final phase of the Campaign, our focus is on properly endowing Parker from a financial
standpoint. The future of our school will require an endowment that is well beyond the $17 million that currently
exists. To be responsible, this campaign must provide Parker with an endowment of at least $52 million. This
figure allows the school to meet minimum standards recommended by the National Association of Independent Schools by having an endowment that is two times its current annual operating budget, and it
will enable Parker to operate without the panic of having to constantly scramble to balance its budget.
More importantly, a properly funded endowment will ensure the continuation of important Parker values:
diversity and innovation. The endowment supports the people and programs that are fundamental to the school,
directly funding financial assistance for families in need, faculty endowment and educational programs.

William R. Duffy Memorial Scholarship Fund
Henry “Buzz” Paschen Fund
William Duffy was a rare and gifted teacher who taught English at Parker
beginning in 1975, inspiring three decades of students to love literature and
writing. He was an impressive, loving and intelligent man who his students
and colleagues remember for his passion for teaching and for finding ways
to allow each person to see what he saw: the power of imaginative thinking
that lies within each of us. To honor the legacy of this great teacher, the
school established an endowment in his name following his death in 2002.
Parker allocates all contributions to this endowment to the Scholarship Fund.
This list recognizes contributions made during the period between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009.

To honor the memory of Jack Ellison, the school’s fifth principal, the class
of ’55, with Emily Ellison’s approval, established an endowed scholarship in his name to recognize his contributions to the Parker community
and to so many alumni as individuals. Since March 2006, their efforts
have produced $32,629. To fully endow the scholarship, the class of ’55
aims to raise $500,000, and they invite the entire Parker community to
join them in funding this enduring memorial to a Parker legend.
This list recognizes contributions made during the period between March 1, 2006 and June 30, 2009.

Enrichment and Innovation

opportunities to sustain an ongoing stream of ideas and initiatives that will aid students who
are ready and able to pursue learning at an accelerated rate or in greater depth.

as a trustee for the first 30 years. Her outstanding commitment is echoed by many parents, parents emeriti, alumni and friends
who have helped ensure the school’s future by including Parker in their wills and estate plans.

Grade-Level Traditions Evolve
■
In 4th grade, the traditional study of Greece, which typically culminates in an
original play or other theatrical presentation, this year embraced a hybrid approach,
combining a “movie” produced by the students and live music performed by
students in full Greek costumes.
■
In recent years, the 5th graders staged a Morning Ex to showcase what they
had learned about the medieval period. This year, each classroom traveled back
in time to the Middle Ages: students assumed the roles of merchants, stained
glass makers, doctors, soldiers and more, as parents and student peers strolled
from room to room to hear all about the significance of each role in that era.
