Dear Families,

During this season of giving thanks,I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your contributions to our growing community.   The last few months have been challenging, exhausting and inspiring.  We are blazing a trail in education and building a program we can all be proud of–one that celebrates the performing arts and all that it offers to people–young and old. Thank you for trusting us with your children every day and for supporting our efforts toward helping them be the best person they can be.

From the bottom of my heart, Happy Thanksgiving!   I hope you have a wonderful holiday and are able to enjoy restful time spent with the ones that you love.

With gratitude,

Jennifer Burgess


We will be hosting a holiday open house/back-to-school night on December 12 (5th-8th grade) and December 13 (K-4th grade).   More details to come.


We are in need of disposable bowls for students who do not have a lunch.  We have plenty of cereal, milk and spoons.  If you are able to donate bowls, please bring them to the front office. Thank you in advance..


Please fill out an intent to enroll form (if you haven’t already done so) for any sibling(s) that you would like to have attend Parker Performing Arts in 2017-18.  We can only give sibling priority if we know about the sibling(s)!  Please note that siblings are not guaranteed placement but are given priority after enrolled students, founding families, and staff members.  All intent to enroll forms must be filled out by November 30th.  Please contact with any questions.


PPA 7th grade student and violinist Savannah Anderson was accepted into the 2016-2017 Douglas County School District Middle School Honor Orchestra. Miss Anderson was one of over 50 students that auditioned from across the school district. The culminating concert for the event will take place at Castle View High School on Saturday, January 21 at 5 PM.  What a great honor for Savannah!  Congratulations!


If you still need to pay your $90 student fee, you now have the option of paying online! To take advantage of the online payment option please use the link below. If you would rather pay by cash or check you still have that option as well. We hope to have all student fees collected prior to Thanksgiving break so please make your payment as soon as possible.

Enjoy the rest of your break,

Mrs. Burgess
