The Parkside Parent Teacher Organization is currently co-chaired by Nicole Boyd Lehman and Jama Kinsey.  Parkside is a true neighborhood school and we have the support of parents and teachers that work together to make the best community for our school.

Activities

Monthly activities for Parkside families are sponsored by the school admin with support from the PTO and some are sponsored by the PTO.

The school year starts with an ice cream social on the playground for Parkside families.  They host an all-school dance in January and Roller skating night as well.  The PTO supports the school administration on Generosity Day, Christmas program, and end-of-the-year picnic.

Throughout the year they offer teachers support by funding field trips, with birthday cards & presents, and bringing in snacks & special treats.

Meetings

First Monday of every month at 5:00 PM.

Parent Involvement

Parents can be involved at whatever level they like. From being grade representatives at PTO meetings to volunteering during fundraisers, bringing in food for Teacher Appreciation Week, or popping popcorn for Parkside’s “Popcorn Fridays”.

Fundraisers

Parkside’s biggest fundraiser is the PTO Annual Rose Sale. The rose sale was started in 1929 and it’s still a wonderful way for the larger Parkside neighborhood to help support our students and school. We also hold a t-shirt sale.
