Janesville Parker Impresses New Family to SDJ
The following email was sent to Parker Principal Chris Laue from Tammy Carlson, ESC Secretary
“I just wanted to pass on a compliment that I received today about your school staff. We had a parent of a St. Mary's parochial school student who lives in Edgerton that had completed open enrollment to go to Janesville or Milton. The family toured both Janesville Parker and Craig as well as Milton High School and the son chose to attend Parker High School because he felt so welcomed by your building. The mother said that your orientation impressed her son and her family so much that even though no one else from St. Mary’s will be attending Parker from his classes, he still wanted to attend there next year.”
