Principal's Message

         PARKWAY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

            PARENT UPDATE, APRIL, 2017

 Dear Parents:
           State testing season is now underway.  Our 3rd graders take the AIR ELA test this week, with math testing later this month for 3rd and 4th graders.  Please be sure the students get a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast for test days, so they can perform at their optimal level.

           The McDonald’s Peelers sale was a great success.  1126 cards were sold, which earns the school over $5000 and a contribution to the Ronald McDonald House of $1126.  Thanks to all who supported this fundraising effort!

            Parkway kindergarten screening and registration will be held at the Parkway Elementary School on Thursday, April 20 from 8:00-2:30 and Friday, April 21 from 8:00-2:30. There will be no school for current kindergarten students on these days.   Our preschool registration night will be on Wednesday, April 26 from 7-8 p.m.

            The High 5 Spring Carnival was fantastic!  We are so grateful for the contributions of the volunteers, parents, community members and area businesses which combine to make this a great event.

Sincerely, 
 Mark Esselstein
