Weekly Message for the Week of 6/14/20

Hello Parkwood Families – This is principal Anna Rusconi with your weekly message. 

This is the final Sunday message of the 2019-2020 school year – and what a school year it has been!  While this school year has certainly presented unique challenges to all of us personally and professionally, those challenges have also been opportunities for growth.  I have seen our community pull together in great ways to make sure that basic needs are met as well as instructional and emotional needs. 

That is why I am feeling excited about next school year – because I know that whatever school looks like from an operational standpoint, our buildings at Parkwood will be full of human beings who truly care about each other and the world around us. 

I know that you all are anxiously awaiting information about the opening of school for the 2020-2021 school year.  I promise to continue to communicate plans for next year as they are made and finalized so that everyone can stay in the loop and begin to prepare for the 2020-2021 school year.  I hope that I will be able to begin communicating re-opening details to you by the end of July. 

The word “grateful” seems an inadequate description for how I feel about being the leader of Parkwood Elementary.  It is truly the best job in the world and I am incredibly lucky to be in this role.  Thank you so much for being the best school community. I hope that you all have a safe and relaxing summer full of enriching experiences and people you love. 

As always, thank you for listening and remember, Parkwood Panthers show PRIDE!
