The "Magic 5" for winter recess!

The "Magic 5" for winter recess!

It's winter again! Students should dress prepared to go outside for at least 20 minutes each day.  We go outdoors for recess and stretch breaks unless the temperature and/or wind chill are below 0 degrees.

These are the "Magic 5" items needed to play outside in the snow during their outdoor breaks...

 

Parkside CARES!

Parkside CARES!

Our school motto is Parkside CARES - for ourselves...for others...for our learning...for our school.  Parkside CARES positive behavior expectations are actively taught and regularly acknowledged in all settings.  We work together as both staff and students to support each other, learn and have fun.  Click on "more" for some examples!

Daily Schedule

Daily Schedule

Office hours are 7:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Students should not arrive before 7:25 a.m., as students are not allowed in the building before then.There is no supervision available until that time as teachers are prepping for classes and attending meetings, and students will need to wait outside if they arrive prior to 7:25 a.m.  Make sure that your children dress appropriately for the weather in the event that they need to wait outdoors for a few minutes in the morning.  If your child is a walker, make sure that they are not leaving the house too early to avoid an extended wait time. The school day begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 2:25 p.m. We have a rotating specialist schedule (Physical Education, Media & Music).
