During the month of April, Parkway School was hopping with many events and partnerships. In addition to our after school Environmental Club, our school-wide Title 1 STEM efforts included a first annual Coding Night. Parkway ended the month with a “I Like to Move It, Move It” challenge. Students participated in a 30-minute cardio and wellness challenge and earned pledges to help fund the improvement projects of the courtyard/outdoor classroom.
Parkway EIS teacher, Ann Marie Jamison retired from the Army Reserves on February 28th after serving her country for 21 years. Parkway helped Ms. Jamison celebrate her accomplishment with a surprise indoor parade, in her honor on March 7th.
The Governor’s Teacher and Educational Professionals Recognition Program was developed in 1985 for the purpose of recognizing and honoring teachers and educational professionals who exhibit outstanding performance. The motivation for this program is based on the premise that teaching excellence is one of the most significant factors impacting student achievement and the quality of public schools.
Parkway Elementary School and Ewing High School teamed up to launch the “Panther Pals” Schoolwide Title I after school mentoring program. This partnership brings high school volunteers to the PES Extended Day Program to work directly with elementary students on teamwork and social emotional learning through cooperative activities, crafts, and games.
Kindergarten students of Parkway School excitedly wait for the first Friday of each month. Their new friends from Bank of America/Merrill Lynch will be arriving to make Fun Fridays a little more fun. A rotating group of six volunteers visit the kindergarten classes to play board games in small groups during the last 45 minutes of the day. The noise level rises as students learn to roll dice, move pieces, take turns, follow directions and celebrate wins.
The 5th grade at Parkway took part in a Marshmallow STEM challenge. Each group of students was given a marshmallow, 20 pieces of spaghetti, one yard of string, and one yard of tape. The groups were tasked to create the tallest free-standing structure that can hold the marshmallow on top in a given period of time.
