Panorama Family Survey

Helping students do their best in school requires a team effort. Parents, students, and schools all play important roles in this process. Help us make your child's school experience as positive and beneficial as possible by giving honest, thoughtful responses to the questions in the WCPSS Family Survey. The WCPSS Family Survey will be open from April 10 - May 12, 2023.  We would like to have 100% of our families contribute to shine a light on Parkside and how our parents care about their education.



School Calendars Approved

School Calendars were approved at last week’s school board meeting. Please note there are no early release days built into next year’s calendar.
