Principal's Message


                              MARCH, 2019


Dear Parents:

    The High 5 parent organization invites you to volunteer to help with game booths for the 10th annual Spring Carnival, slated for March 16, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  If interested in volunteering, please call Jessica Yoder at 419-905-6900 for information.

    Our Great American Fundraising sale brought in over $18,500 in sales which will net our school approximately $7000 to utilize for assemblies, field trips and incentives.  Thank you for your participation.  The prize day will be on March 29.

    Parkway kindergarten screening and registration will be held at the Parkway Elementary School on Thursday, April 11 from 8:00-3:00 and Friday, April 12 from 8:00-3:00.   Please call Michelle at 419-363-3045, ext.720 to schedule an appointment for your child.  Please bring your child’s original birth certificate, shot records, social security card and custody papers (if applicable) so we can photocopy them for his/her file.  The health department will not be giving shots at the screening.  Please take your child to the health department if he/she is in need of shots before starting kindergarten.  Your child must be 5 years old on or before August 1 to attend kindergarten this fall.  All students entering kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year need to go through this screening process.  There will be no school for current kindergarten students on these days.     The preschool registration night is set for Wednesday, April 3. 

      There will be a final round of Parent-Teacher conferences for grades K-1st on Thursday, March 21 from 4:30-8:00 p.m.  Please contact the school to set up an appointment.
