Welcome to Parkside Elementary School

Our C.L.A.S.S. (Connecting Learning Assures Student Success) training and coaching are the foundations for best practices in brain-based learning and teaching.  We have established school-wide procedures, and the common language of using the Life Goals, Lifelines, and Brain Talks.  We are also implementing the Student Leadership Ambassador Program today, to empower and train the leaders of tomorrow.

The C.L.A.S.S. strategies not only lay the foundation for desired leadership behavior, but they are also integrated into the presenting and processing of curriculum.  The Year-long Plans incorporate Life Goals and Life Lines, essential character traits for the 21st Century. The plans help teachers and students use the Welcome Message, Collaboration Structures, Literacy Links, and Agendas to provide structure in the classroom, prepare the brain for learning, and make continual curriculum and learning goal connections; which lead to higher student achievement in and out of the classroom.
