Weekly Message for the Week of 1/18/21

Good evening Parkwood Community,

Don’t forget that this week will be a short week for students.  Tomorrow, Monday January 18, is a holiday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  Tuesday January 19 is a remote learning day.  This means that there will be asynchronous assignments for students to work on and attendance will be taken, but there will be no live instruction.  Wednesday January 20 is Wellness Wednesday and so our normal remote learning schedule will resume on Thursday January 21.

I have a bittersweet announcement to share with you all.  Two of our awesome staff members will be retiring at the end of January.  Our guidance counselor, Ms. Shaw, and our Social-Emotional Learning teacher, Mr. Williams, will both be retiring at the end of this month.  They have brought so much to our community and they will both be missed – we wish them good health and much joy during this new chapter in their lives! 

Second quarter report cards will be available via Parent Portal by 8am this Friday January 22.  Report cards will only be available through Parent Portal, so please call our main office at 919-560-3962 to get assistance with setting up your account if you do not already have one.  If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s grades for second quarter, please reach out to your child’s teacher via email or Dojo. 

Thank you for reading and remember – Parkwood Panthers show PRIDE!

Anna Rusconi, Principal
