Principal's Message


                                             JANUARY, 2020

 Dear Parents:

            Happy New Year to all of you!  I hope that you and your family had a joyous Christmas with lots of family time and were able to get some rest and relaxation. I want to thank Mrs. Wagner for the wonderful Christmas concerts.  Our children did a great job and our parents did a superb job with the students’ outfits!

            We are planning to run a fundraiser for Parkway Elementary later this month.  Details will be coming soon. I ask you to please support these sales so that we can continue to provide wonderful assemblies, field trips and other incentives for our students.

            OneView reminder – Throughout the school year, if phone numbers for yourself or emergency contacts change, need to add an emergency contact or you have an address change, you do not need to notify the school office.  Please make the change on OneView and the office is then notified of the change.

             Please be sure that students are dressed appropriately with coats, hats and gloves for winter weather at the bus stops and for recesses. We try to have the students outside as much as possible for recess.  If the wind chill is 20 degrees or more and the playground surface is ice-free, we will send the students outside.
