When I visited her classroom to present the award, I could see how much she lives those values in her teaching. The students clearly love Ms. Voorhees. They were very excited for her.” Congratulations to Ms. Voorhees!

  •  Parkway Nurses Office Tree of Thanks!

    Parkway Nurses Chasing the "Blues" Away By Encouraging Students and Staff to Be Thankful!

    The nurses at Parkway Elementary School are helping to remind students and staff that a great way to fight depression, stress or "the blues"  is to say thanks. Each day, students and staff can come into the Nurses Office and write down all the things that make them grateful on a leaf and then add the leaf to the tree located on the bulletin board. Many students and staff leave the Nurses Office, stating they feel better! Each day the tree grows bigger and warm feelings spread through the school.  So remember,  to just "say thanks"!

  •  Eating apples

    Apples and Learning!

    The Parkway students in Mrs. Tink and Mrs. Mavroudis’ 3rd grade classrooms know that learning can be fun when connected to the seasons.  That’s why, on a warm, autumn afternoon, the two classrooms went outside for a fall lesson about apples.  After the students made up a list of adjectives to describe apples, they wrote descriptive sentences such as "I like to eat big, red, juicy apples".  Next, the students enjoyed taste-testing different kinds of apples and recorded if the apple was juicy, crunchy, sweet, or sour.  Students also enjoyed listening to the story Fancy Nancy Apples Galore!  Finally, no apple lesson is complete without some apple desserts.  Apple juice, apple danish and apple cake made this outing extra special!
