Parkside Picture Re-Take Day is October 22
Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Mark your calendars! Picture Re-Take Day here at Parkside is October 22. Choir, strings and candid photos for the yearbook will also be taken that day.

If you want your child to have his or her school pictures retaken, the student will need to return the picture envelope and all photos that day and the same package selection will be processed with the new photo.

Any students who are new to Parkside since the original picture day, will have their photos taken on the 22nd. Order forms for those students will be sent home soon.

PTA Read-A-Thon Deadline is Friday - Good Progress So Far!
Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Our PTA Read-a-Thon fundraiser is in full swing and our students have already logged 81,570 minutes of reading! That is a great start, but we are just over half way to our goal.

To date, 70 percent of our Parkside students have participated and we are confident that we will meet our goal when all of our students turn in their final logs on the last day, this Friday, September 18.

Our reading goal for this event is 30 minutes per student per day for a school total of 150,840 minutes.

Our fundraising goal is $10,000 or approximately $40 per student.

Please be sure that students turn in their log sheets and donation envelopes to their teacher by Friday. Checks should be made payable to Parkside PTA.

Thank you for your support of our Parkside Read-a-Thon fundraiser!
