Habitat for Humanity
Park Tudor School has had a longstanding partnership with the Indianapolis chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Every two years the school builds a Habitat home and during the years when the students aren’t building a home, they are working in collaboration with the Development office to raise significant funding for the project. Park Tudor strives to engage and include all Park Tudor students (JK-12) in this project and plans for future builds are aimed to deepen the partnership.
After School Tutoring
Park Tudor students work with children from the Kaleidoscope Youth Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality after-school enrichment for low-income families. Once a week, a group of high school students help students at a local neighborhood center with their homework. They also design and run special activities and have fundraisers or drives for the center.
Children's Hospital Partnerships
Park Tudor partners with two children’s hospitals in the Indianapolis area: the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital and Riley Children's Hospital. Not limited to only fundraising activities, the students also prepare and share gifts for the patients. For example, fifth graders and seniors made fleece superhero capes for the children in the hospitals.
Indiana School for the Blind
Park Tudor fourth graders work with students from the Indiana School for the Blind monthly on arts and crafts, games, and other activities. This experience is incorporated into their school curriculum when they read a book about a blind child in their language arts classroom.
Food Pantry and Homeless Shelters
Park Tudor maintains a strong partnership with the local food pantry. Fifth grade students volunteer monthly and they also have school-wide food drives and book drives for the food pantry. The same sort of relationship exists with the local homeless shelter. We have also begun to develop a partnership with a local homeless shelter.
