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.
Parkway Elementary School and Meadowbrook Elementary School held their first Family Coding Nights during the week of January 27. Parents worked alongside their children to participate in coding challenges using the computer literacy program Scratch.
At Parkway, Woodland and W.T. Clarke Middle School Metamorphosis students joined their teacher, Mr. Alex Abanavas. Ms. Jamie Mack welcomed attendees and Mr. Abanavas introduced the subject of coding and how it is used every day. The students and Mr. Abanavas then guided the parents and students through the coding process. At Meadowbrook, Ms. Kelly Di Sclafani and Ms. Meredith Broxmeyer welcomed attendees while Mr. Jim Mendonis, Director of Social Studies and 21st Century Learning, introduced the subject of coding and how it is used every day.
