Parental involvement is important in a child's education. Parents are welcome to visit school. If you wish to visit a classroom during the school day, however, please arrange the time and date in advance with your child's teacher so classroom schedules can be taken into account. Teachers will notify the office to expect your visit. All visitors entering the building during regular school hours must enter through the office, sign in on our visitor log and obtain a visitor's badge.
Parkside "Parents as Partners"
We are committed to working with the families of our students as partners so that each of these children that we share can have the best educational experience possible. We welcome you to become involved in your child's education. During the year, we try to offer a number of activities for our Parkside families. These events are possible with the support of parents and other volunteers who help plan, organize, and carry out the activities along with members of our staff. We are always looking for new ideas, and welcome all family members to share their interests and talents with our students.
We are thankful for the many people willing to help out in our school. A number of you have already signed up to help this year, and we welcome any other parents, guardians or family/community members who are interested. To simplify the process, our Parent Volunteer Coordinator compiles an email list of interested volunteers each school year. Anytime there is a need for volunteers, a blanket email will be sent out to this group to see if you are available to help. Emailing back is quick and easy for all involved. You can have your name added to the list by letting the school office know or by filling out the Volunteer Questionnaire form and dropping it off in the school office.
Parkside is so appreciative of our Parent and Community Volunteers. We couldn't do what we do without your help!
All volunteers in the district supervising students or being responsible for them during school hours are required to have a criminal background check. (This includes accompanying your child on a school field trip. Be sure to do this well in advance of the field trip date.) See the links below more additional information.
