    It will be a busy month at Parkway School as they will also celebrate Read Across America Week from March 1st through March 5th with themed spirit events each day. Read Across America Week will end on Friday, March 5th with our “Panther-demic style” event, “Pajama Reading Day”. On “Pajama Reading Day” we will be engaged in reading-based activities all day and kick off our 4th annual school-wide Title 1 family event of “Every Panther One Book.” “Every Panther One Book” is an event where together we read the same book, as a school community. There will be videotaped chapters posted on the school website and question and challenge activities to complete. All completed activity forms will be exchanged for tickets to raffle off Barnes and Noble gift cards and Nook e-readers. Let’s get excited about READING!

  • Important District Communication: Parkway Elementary School COVID Update/PES to remain Fully Virtual - Students Return to In-Person Learning Wednesday, February 24th

    We learned earlier this week of an additional Parkway Elementary School staff member who has tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Our certified district COVID-trackers have conducted contact tracing and all staff and students who have been determined to have possibly been in close contact with this staff member have been notified. Our contact tracers and COVID Management team believe that these cases are related and connected. Out of an abundance of caution, the COVID Management Team has made the decision to extend Parkway Elementary School fully virtual instruction until Wednesday, February 24th. We will continue to monitor this situation carefully and evaluate developments. If there are no further concerning COVID-related developments, our “in-person” students will return to Parkway on the 24th.

  • Parkway Principal Harris Announces Retirement

    Since becoming principal in 2007, Harris has shaped the close-knit, special culture that characterizes the Parkway School. Always visible, accessible and highly involved in her school, the sight of the student-centered Harris welcoming students in the morning has been a constant at the Parkway School for the past thirteen years. The school district will begin the search for Principal Harris’s successor immediately. A posting will be developed and disseminated widely. A district email has been established, pesprincipalsearch@ewingboe.org for any school community member to share thoughts or ideas related to the principal vacancy and search.

  • The Great Cookie Debate

    In the days leading up to the election, the students studied and dove deep into the rights, beliefs, and the election process across all of their subjects. Through an interdisciplinary study in the days leading up to the election, students were asked to read, write, and discuss through books and activities what it meant to engage them in this national event. There was seemingly no better way to engage students in the democratic process than to host a debate with a very pressing question; which cookies are better: chocolate chip or Oreo?
