Dear Parkside Panther Families,
As the Principal of Parkside Elementary, I am delighted to welcome new and returning families to our school community and look forward to your involvement and support in making this a very successful school year.
We are dedicated to the growth and development of the whole child and empowering students to be future ready. We do that by: Engaging – Empowering – Preparing - Respecting -- Every Panther, Every Day.
We value our great community and appreciate your support. Together we can create an outstanding school culture. We would like to encourage everyone to join our Parent Teacher Association. Our PTA provides valuable support for our school throughout the year.
This school handbook has been prepared to help answer many of the questions that students and parents often have concerning school and district activities, procedures, and rules. We believe that the observance of the guidelines found in this document will help create a safe, orderly, and enjoyable school that is conducive to learning and student success.
Please look at the Students, Teachers and Parents expectations and review them with your student. There is no intent to develop a set of rules that are overly confining or restrictive rather, we hope to offer a common foundation of clearly understood expectations and procedures that will enable us to provide the best educational experience for every student and parent! You will find more information about our Positive Behavior and Intervention Support (PBIS) framework as well as Bullying Information on our school website.
It is a pleasure and honor to be part of this amazing Parkside faculty and staff. If you have comments, suggestions or concerns, please do don’t hesitate to reach out to me. You may reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or the school office at 401-402-1152.
Welcome to the 2022 – 2023 school year!
