Dear parents and community,
Our Character Trait for December is Caring in which our school participates in a CANNED FOOD DRIVE benefiting the Madera Food Shelter. Please send any canned goods with your child to school during this month, as well as bring them to the great events we have planned.
On December 10 we have our Family Winter Social by our Parkwood Parent Community Club in our cafeteria. As always, we will be offering arts, crafts and snacks to all that participates as well as pictures with Santa. On December 17th (K-2) and 18th (3-6), our school will hold our annual Holiday Program at our cafeteria. Performances begin each night at 6:30 p.m. More information to come.
As students begin their winter vacation, please keep them active in academic activities even for a small amount of time (hour a day). This could be done by reading or math facts, maybe even trips to the public library.
Finally, I truly appreciate your continued support with your child. On behalf of Parkwood Elementary staff and community, I wish you and your family a restful, wonderful vacation and a very happy New Year.
Parkwood Elementary School will provide all students with a superior education so they will realize their potential, pursue their dreams and become productive community members with high moral character.
