recently commemorating its Centennial. In 1912, a group of parents 
embarked on a truly remarkable journey by making a commitment to 
promote excellence in education with an emphasis on the personal 
development of their students.
  Over the past 100 years, The Park School has carried out its mission 
of building a diverse and creative community that nurtures the joy and 
responsibility of active learning for all. From its founders, John 
Dewey and Mary Hammett Lewis, to the current administration, Park has 
truly left its mark on Snyder and the Western New York community.
  I am confident that The Park School will continue its mission of 
educating our youth and strengthening our community as successfully 
over the next 100 years.
