Parkside Elementary School's mission is to provide an educationally strong yet nurturing environment for all children to learn.  Learning and growing are what we are all about - challenging ourselves, learning to interact positively with others, and reaching academic success.  We are committed to working in partnership with our families so that each of these children that we share can have the best educational experience possible. 

At Parkside Elementary, we are proud to offer a warm and welcoming environment for our students, staff, parents and visitors.  We currently have approximately 415 students in grades kindergarten through grade 5.  In addition to the core curriculum, our specialist teachers provide instruction for vocal music, physical education, and library media/ technology.  Qualifying students are further supported with Title I instruction and Reading Corps Tutoring. All of our teachers are highly qualified and fully licensed in the areas in which they teach. Parkside Elementary School houses two district level programs servicing children in the Quest Gifted/Talented Program as well as in special education. 

Our school motto is Parkside CARES - for ourselves, others, our learning, 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.

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 3-day rotating specialist schedule (Physical Education, Media & Music). Click here for more details.
