T. Hudson's Principal Updates on April 11, 2023

Hello Sandpipers,

I want to thank everyone for the warmest of welcomes as I started my journey as your new principal yesterday. I received so many well wishes from parents, students, and staff. The Parkside community has been so amazing embracing me, and making me feel like a member of the family!


Happy Assistant Principal Week to the Amazing Mr. Helfrich and Mr. Liles

The week of April 10th we celebrate and show our appreciation for our leaders Mr. Helfrich and Mr. Liles. These two have been such a support as I have transitioned into this new position, and I could not imagine having done it without them. Please take a minute to show our AP’s how thankful the Parkside community is for their work and positive impact at the school!
