Parkway Pride

Parkway Elementary School is an integral part of our community. Students are invited to discover, experiment, invent, and dream in our child-centered classrooms. The staff strives to advance the achievement of all students by creating and maintaining an academically rigorous environment where students are supported and nurtured so that all of them have the opportunity to meet their maximum potential.

Educating the students of Parkway is truly a team effort. We are proud of our highly involved and active PTA. Members work closely with our administration, teachers and staff to provide a wide array of programs and activities that are integrated with our curriculum. As a team, we emphasize and promote a spirit of collaboration and cooperation in all of our efforts to enrich and educate our students.

It is our goal to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of each individual student and help each one of them strengthen their character. We pride ourselves in our ability to foster a spirit of collaboration and cooperation in all of its efforts to enrich and educate our students. With the efforts of our dedicated staff and the home/school connection, we strive to ensure excellence in education for all our children.

Chiara Marangelli’s fourth grade class at Parkway Elementary School recently donated to the World Wildlife Fund after reading “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate. The novel is inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan. After Ms. Marangelli read the book aloud to her students, the class was motivated to give back to their environment. The students researched ways to help wildlife and collectively decided to donate to the World Wildlife Fund which protects bears’ natural habitats. To do this, the students adopted a bear paid for by collecting recyclables.
