Parkway Pride

Parkway Elementary School is an integral part of our community. Students are invited to discover, experiment, invent, and dream in our child-centered classrooms. The staff strives to advance the achievement of all students by creating and maintaining an academically rigorous environment where students are supported and nurtured so that all of them have the opportunity to meet their maximum potential.

Educating the students of Parkway is truly a team effort. We are proud of our highly involved and active PTA. Members work closely with our administration, teachers and staff to provide a wide array of programs and activities that are integrated with our curriculum. As a team, we emphasize and promote a spirit of collaboration and cooperation in all of our efforts to enrich and educate our students.

It is our goal to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of each individual student and help each one of them strengthen their character. We pride ourselves in our ability to foster a spirit of collaboration and cooperation in all of its efforts to enrich and educate our students. With the efforts of our dedicated staff and the home/school connection, we strive to ensure excellence in education for all our children.

Literacy Champions

Parkway Elementary School blended the fun of reading with the excitement of March Madness during Pick a Reading Partner Month, when the building hosted a five-week bracket-style literacy tournament. On March 22, the winning book was announced as, “The Book with No Pictures,” by B.J. Novak.

A bracket was created that covered the building’s main office entrance with the initial 16 books in the tournament. Each week, students voted on the book matchups to see which novels would advance to the next round while also taking the time to read the options. In the final round, “The Book with No Pictures” took the victory, followed closely by Drew Daywalt’s, “The Day the Crayons Quit.” 

For the total duration of the contest, students at Parkway collectively read 161,221 minutes. This includes four classes that read 10,000 minutes each. The fifth-grade Presidential Service Club was responsible for calculating the minutes read as well as the adjoining write ups.

To also celebrate PARP, students were invited to create book recommendations to be read in school. These one-slip recommendations eventually filled a large portion of the main hallway wall. Those who created recommendations were entered into a book drawing with the book prizes being donated by the PTA.

“I am extremely proud of the dedication and excitement our students, staff and PTA showed towards PARP this year and the reading results are incredible,” said Principal Jamie Mack.
