We agree 10,000% with Mr. Franklin! When our students have the hands on materials they need to learn, they thrive AND their lives are transformed.
“Having access to things like headphones allows me to listen to music while I’m working which helps me center my thoughts.”Seventh grade student
“Writing is hard for me and at my old school no one could help me. At Park Academy I have teachers who can help me AND access to technology, like Speech to Text.”Eighth grade student
“Math is hard, but having tools like counting blocks and playing games helps me visualize a problem and that helps me.”Fourth grade student
With the holidays quickly approaching, some Park Academy advocates have inquired about our current needs as they head out to do their holiday shopping. Our teachers have created a list of items that will enhance their classroom, curriculum or their own personal development. Your investment will have a direct impact on our students’ learning. These manipulatives, technology, organizational tools and other resources ensure that our students receive the type of education that works best for them.
We have made it fairly simple; almost all items are listed on our Amazon wish list. These items range from $10 to larger ticket items. We also have some wishes that even Amazon can’t fill, those can be found here.
On behalf of myself, our students and families, faculty, staff, and Board of Directors, we wish you a wonderful holiday season! We are grateful to have your support of Park Academy!
Head of School
