    PARKWAY ELEMENTARY PARENT UPDATE

                    DECEMBER, 2017

Dear Parents:
          I want to thank all of you who attended this year’s parent-teacher conferences.  Children perform so much better when parents take an active role in their education. Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades will have their last parent-teacher conference session on March 22.  Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher(s) at any time during the school year if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s education.

         We have a couple of events that will surely get you into the Christmas spirit coming up this month.  On Thursday, December 7, our 2nd graders will be performing their Christmas concert at 6:00 p.m. in the auditorium, followed by the 4th graders at 6:45 p.m.  The 1st and 3rd graders will sing their hearts out for you on Thursday, December 14.  Please come and enjoy the sounds of the season!

         As we near the holidays, help us keep your child’s focus on academics through the next three weeks.  A set routine at home for homework, play, and bedtime, will enable the student to be successful and productive at school.  The staff of the Parkway Elementary School offers you their best wishes for a blessed, happy and safe Christmas season!

 Sincerely,

 Mark Esselstein, Principal
