A classical education is ultimately about the essential humanity inside each of us and the pursuit of a good and meaningful life. In times of stress and turmoil, we can be the change we wish to see in the world and work to be a positive influence in our neighborhoods and communities.
Our athletic co-op with Brooklyn Center High School has provided a wonderful opportunity for our students to participate in a variety of different sports in addition to those we offer at Parnassus. Brooklyn Center High School has set up a temporary Resource Distribution Center at their school to collect and distribute food and household supplies.
We would like to pitch in and help them with their efforts, but we need to work quickly because they are only collecting items through Thursday of this week! Currently, they need cases of bottled water and household cleaning supplies like paper towels, all-purpose cleaning spray, and sanitizing wipes.
If you are able to contribute, please send donations to school by Thursday morning. We will have staff members and student volunteers stationed outside in the Quad during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up beginning today, April 20th. Parnassus staff will arrange for transportation of items to the donation site; however, if you would also be willing to help transport donations on Thursday afternoon, please connect with Ms. Baddin at email@example.com. We encourage all of you who can do so to participate in this event as we help our friends and neighbors!
