BACK TO SCHOOL? As we are going to press we still can't get a definitive word on what is happening with school. One thing is for sure, it will be anything but normal.

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME Parker is thriving. Our growth is on the rise like never before. To accommodate this unprecedented expansion we have new home communities everywhere we turn. We took a look at the new home options around town and what they offer.

Back to School?

Coffee Cabin

COVID has parents and teachers stressing about what will happen in August when schools reopen. DCSD is beginning to make plans for how to reopen with an emphasis on health and safety.

The Coffee Cabin hosted another DC Law Enforcement Appreciation and prayer event. The community turned out in support after the Coffee Cabin had been previously vandalized.

Community Service 2020 has brought some difficult trials for us all. But it has also inspired many to reach out and serve. Community service projects have been held and have assisted countless individuals to get through this downturn. One such young woman is Mikaela Fischer. She started two projects – Masks for Hope and Toys & Treats for Homeless Pets. Read more about her projects on our website searchparker.com. 8 SEARCHPARKER | AUGUST 2020

E D I TO R ' S TA K E BY SEARCH PARKER STAFF

It was an emotional conversation with a new, frightened local business owner that prompted the launch of the Parker Showcase passport. With the uncertainty of the flailing economy, and the onset of newer restrictions caused by the pandemic, Rex and Kristin Grayner realized that focusing on helping others was an answer to their own personal concerns. Rex and Kristin decided they wanted to do something to help their neighbors and the community. They came up with an idea to give residents (otherwise unable to travel), a "passport" to experience local restaurants. They didn't want it to be just another coupon book that gets discarded; there were already too many of those hanging around. They really wanted to make a difference. Many local restaurants were approached and ultimately 17 were included in the first printing of the booklet. None of the establishments paid anything to be included. With booklets now printed and distributed to participating restaurants, the online store was also opened and sales took off. 10 SEARCHPARKER | AUGUST 2020

Parker Showcase became a great success early on, as both restaurants and residents were eager to be a part of this great endeavor. The savings of the booklet was almost secondary; the thrill of being involved and pulling together as a community was the primary rush. Rex and Kristin then decided to take things up a notch. Since only a small percentage of the local restaurants were benefitting from the booklet, Grayners decided to expand the project's impact. They took 100% of the profits from the sale of the booklet and bought gift cards to other local places. They distributed those gift cards to the public freeof-charge. Last I spoke with the Grayners, many surrounding communities have reached out to them to launch a Showcase passport in their towns. In these uncertain and seemingly downtrodden times, it is great to hear of wonderful people reaching out to do good. There are good stories out there, and good people like the Grayners are making them come to life.

Whether students return to classrooms or virtual learning persists, there will be a new look and feel to school. But how long will it last? by AMBER TUELLER

12 SEARCHPARKER | AUGUST 2020


B

ack to school  is a common phrase that brings traditional feelings and images to mind - families going school shopping, kids organizing backpacks, and school open houses bring a feeling of new beginning and excitement. Students are returning to full-time learning and seeing classmates after the summer break. Summer is coming to a close and the crisp fall air will soon be here.    Going back to school this year will be very different. With so many unknowns because of the COVID-19 crisis, school districts are fielding a lot of questions and are having to put a variety of new policies in place. They have consulted with the Tri-County Health Department, as well as other health organizations.  After feedback from  a community survey and input from a special task force made up of educators, community members, health care professionals, students, and parents, the district has put together a plan of action for the 2020-2021 school year.   Douglas County School District is offering an option for families that are not comfortable with in-person learning to engage in remote learning from home. Many students will also be going back to in-person learning with a variety of restrictions. School start dates have been postponed to allow teachers extra time to prepare for changes. Douglas County School District has a comprehensive webpage answering frequently asked questions to help get a feel for how things will be handled and the restrictions that are required at this time. For more information, visit dcsdk12. org. See Road to Return DCSD 2020-2021.  Good luck to families and educators at this unique and challenging time! AUGUST 2020 | SEARCHPARKER 13

The effects of the Coronavirus shutdown in Colorado don't seem to be slowing up the real estate market. Home construction suggests the housing market is emerging from the COVID-19 crisis just fine. As the pace of home-building is still ramping up in the wake of this summer’s drop in interest rates, we took a look at the various new communities our area has to offer. From luxury to practical, you can find everything here in Parker! For the active development projects map within the Town of Parker, visit www.parkerco.maps.arcgis.com AUGUST 2020 | SEARCHPARKER 17

WE ASKED AN EXPERT

Expert guidance will continue as building begins. The sales and construction team will walk the buyer through important milestones and provide progress updates. Home consultants apprise the buyer of the adjustments and corrections that can happen during the building process. Before closing, there will be a meeting with a warranty representative to demonstrate how to use and properly maintain all the components of the new home. As the project draws to a close, everyone who helped anticipates move-in day with excitement.

How to Make Your House a Home Cardel Homes' Sara Dieringer Vice President of Operations and Sales

In the world of online shopping and factory production, building a home is one of the few remaining things created by man, in real time, in the public’s eye. However, many people find this process overwhelming. At Cardel Homes, a group of experts helps the buyer through every step. One doesn’t have to be a professional designer or a construction manager to enjoy the benefits of building a new home. The sales team, the buyer's main point of contact, will help by explaining the terms of the contract, the build process and what to expect at each stage. They can assist in choosing the lot and floorplan. After this, the buyer will move to the next phase, going to the design center to work with a professional designer putting the interiors together while staying within budget. 22 SEARCHPARKER | AUGUST 2020

Cardel Homes, which started as a small family-owned business in 1973 and is now an international company, has shaped over 150 communities and built over 20,000 homes. Despite growth, Cardel retains the best attributes of a family-run business – quick reflexes, tight-knit management, and an ironclad dedication to quality and community. Each of their neighborhoods focuses on establishing a strong sense of belonging. They are the company to choose when building a home!

THERE’S ONLY ONE Hair Color Xperts Post-stay-at-home order both of my teenage boys has what could only be described as hippie hair :) Autumn had them both looking handsome as ever; even without knowing their previous routine cuts! So thankful! ~ Christie Kat is always so great to work with and totally nailed it today! My hair looks great! ~ Heather Thank you to Kat!! Been coming to Hair Color Experts for about 8 years, never disappointed!! Thank you also for following COVID safety and keeping everyone safe! ~Tammy I have been coming here for awhile now. I feel like Autumn is my family. She is always courteous, prompt, delightful to talk with, beautiful, great advisor I could just keep going and going!! I highly recommend this salon and Autumn in particular. The Owner Betty takes great pride in keeping the salon clean and stocked with all the great products that I love. Great staff as well. When COVID started Betty called me herself to explain they had to close and offered to reschedule for anytime that worked for me. Wish all owners where this involved and cared this much! Bottom line, if you are looking for a new home with great family that offers excellent services THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!! ~ Tonja
