Hello Parkwood Families,

This is your principal, Ms. Fearrington, with your first weekly message of the school year!  I hope you have been able to enjoy time with family and friends over the summer.  Time flies by when you are having fun!  We have missed all of you and are excited to see you soon, but summer is not over yet, so make sure to soak up as much sun and fun as you possibly can!  I want to share some important dates and information with you to make sure you are prepared for the upcoming school year.  Please listen closely or read the weekly messages because they will be jammed packed with information to ensure we have a smooth transition into the 2023-2024 school year.

Open House:

Open house will be hosted here at Parkwood on August 24th from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.  You will be able to meet your child’s teacher, get your parent portal set up, meet all of our wonderful staff and get transportation information and much more!  Please mark your calendar and be sure to attend.

First Day of School:

The first day of school is Monday, August 28th!  This summer has flown by, but we are going to have an amazing school year.
