    Message from Mrs. Hall

    Greetings Parkside Families (updated 2/26/2021),

     

    Happy Spring Parkside Families. We officially have a few more weeks until we are really in the spring season, but March always reminds me that it is very close. This month will also mark the end of our 3rd quarter of school this year. We begin to get really busy over these next few months as we prepare for upcoming standardized testing, budget planning, the end of this school year and the start of next school year. Students will be assessed during the end of this month and into April/May to determine their academic progress that has been made this year. These assessments will also help us determine student placement for next year. Please keep an eye out for more information on these dates.

    I wanted to take a minute and thank all of our students and staff for the wonderful service projects they did throughout the month of February. We dedicated the entire month to providing service, love and giving back. Our teachers came up with some great ideas for the students and they really enjoyed getting involved around the school. Thank you for continuing to support us in every way.

    As many of you are aware, we now have over half of our student population back face to face. Our staff is very happy to have these students back in their classrooms with them, as we know this is the best possible type of learning. But, with more students in our school, we know this creates more opportunities for students and staff to get sick. Please continue to remind your children to follow the protocols we have in place: wear mask at all times, keep physical distancing, wash their hands often, and stay home when not feeling well. We appreciate your support with this and helping us keep everyone safe.

    Next week we will celebrate all of our students who have worked to achieve honor roll for the 2nd quarter and Student of the Month for the last few months. We will again be doing these virtually through TEAMS. On Tuesday, March 2nd we will have the Honor Roll assemblies: 3rd at 7, 4th at 7:40, and 5th at 8:20 pm. A link will be sent our through your teachers or individually through your child’s Canvas. Student of the Month will be held on Thursday, March 4th at 7:00 pm. Again, a link will be sent out to the families who will need these before the event. We hope you can take a few minutes to hop on and honor your child for their work.

    Just a reminder that we will be off the week of March 22nd-28th for our Spring Break. There will be an Early Release Day on March 18th and a teacher planning day on March 19th. Please make sure you have marked your calendars for these dates.

    If your phone number or email address has changed, it is so important to make certain that the teacher and the office have current and accurate information in the event of an emergency or if your child becomes sick during a school day. Have a great start to this month.
