Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

   As Principal of Parkway High School, I would like to welcome you to the Parkway Local Schools website. This website has been prepared in the hope that it will become a valuable resource for you and provide you with school news and information. This website has been developed to enable everyone to become familiar with our school, its policies, and other procedures.

   Here at Parkway High School, our staff set high academic standards for our students. Our staff works diligently to ensure that each child is working to his or her maximum ability. Parkway High School, the Parkway Local School District and our Parkway community have a common goal to do what is best for the students.

   The handbook contains information that is important and useful. I urge you to read it thoroughly and thoughtfully. These guidelines are written in order to createan environment conducive to learning and a school where all feel safe andsecure. The expectations for behavior written in our Code of Conduct are based on the essential value of respecting the rights and dignity of each other. Our school can continue to be an outstanding community when all adults treat all students with respect, when all students treat all adults with respect and when all students treat each other with respectful and responsible behavior. When all of us work together with each individual doing his or her part, we can truly make a difference. I will always encourage you to accept the challenge to be a model of respectful behavior.

   Your high school years provide you with the wonderful opportunity to discover your unique talents and gifts. One way to learn is through the variety of clubs, organizations and teams that exist at Parkway High School. There are outstanding athletic teams, musical programs, clubs, drama and academic groups that will help you to learn more about yourself and to develop friendships that may last a lifetime.

   Take a chance by getting involved and trying something new. High school is unlike any other time in your life. Study hard, challenge yourself, set high goals and enjoy yourself. We are very fortunate to have a great school with great students and teachers. Make this time some of the most important and productive years of your life.

   The adults who work here will offer you help along the journey. Please ask for our assistance. We want to be a part of your success. Along with the faculty and staff, I wish you an exciting and successful year.

 

Sincerely,

Brian Fortkamp
