October 17, 2022 - Cooler Weather, Pictures, and Dates!


Greetings Parkside Families – I hope all are doing well! Thank you to all the families that came out to the PTA’s outdoor movie night this past Friday – what a beautiful night and fun time for our Sandpipers!

Speaking of weather – it is going to get pretty chilly the next few days! Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately as we will still have outdoor recess!


On Wednesday October 26th, we will be celebrating "Unity Against Bullying" by encouraging all students and staff to wear their favorite shade of blue. We hope all of our Sandpipers will join us as we unite against bullying! Those on Track 3: We will have another date when you are here – stay tuned!
