ACTIVITIES

The PTO and Parkside staff team up to provide monthly “Parkside Presents” for parents and students to be involved in their child’s education. Some of these include Ice Cream Social, C.L.A.S.S. Family Night, Music Programs, Roller skating, Dance Night, and End of the Year Picnic.

College Go Week and Jump Rope For Heart are two things we participate in.

BOOK FAIR

We have a Scholastic Book Fair twice a year in October and March.

CLUBS

Chess Club, Running Club, 4-H club

FUNDRAISERS

The Parkside PTO sponsors an annual rose sale. Approximately 1,100 dozen roses are sold by students, staff, and community members with participation being voluntary. The profit from this 75-year-old tradition buys playground equipment for the school and educational supplies for teachers.

SPIRIT DAYS

We have March Madness Dress-up days and a school Spirit Week Oct. 25-29.

STUDENT LEADERSHIP

Students expand their leadership skills by building relationships and embracing diversity, discovering and communicating their character, and embracing leadership. We focus on the C.L.A.S.S. Lifelines to define, develop and teach others what they mean in action. The Ambassador program through C.L.A.S.S. supports the enrichment and training for future leaders both in and out of the classroom.
