We would have liked to see you in person at the Kindergarten Orientation to offer Spirit Wear to you, but we will have to manage our operations virtually for a bit. Please add your contact information below to be added to the list to purchase a shirt, bag, or water bottle by clicking here!
Parkside PTA functions solely on parent involvement. We welcome you to explore the ways we are thinking about enhancing the educational experience for you, your students, and our teachers and staff. Share your interests with us here!
Our friends at Booster have sent our students a video from Pogo Jo! See it at the link below. Also, the Booster folks have set up daily character traits and fitness options for our Parkside students. Please see the link below that will take you to a google document explaining the project.

Parkside students have been offered 2 free virtual tutoring sessions through a local NC State student working through GoPeer (and former student of Ms. Faulkner). Use the code FREE120. The link to Kaitlyn’s page is HERE.
Meals for those in Need
With the closing of schools, there are 5 locations in our area that will be serving meals for those in need. In addition, there are several locations being made available to pick up food. Follow the link HERE for locations.
Support the Vendors
Support the Vendors Who Have Supported Parkside– In this difficult time, we see that local restaurants are struggling. These vendors have supported us in our first year of operation, so please consider ordering take out from them. Every order helps.
- Bonefish Grill South Pointe
- Brixx Pizza
- The Brunch Box
- Mi Cancun
- Stone Theaters (gift card)
- Panera Bread
- Johnny’s Pizza
PTA would like to offer shade structures to the playgrounds for our students. We have been informed that WCPSS will match up to $10,000 to realize these needed items. The introduction of these enhancements will require volunteers to plan (selecting the structures and applying for permits, but not to install). If you would like to be a part of this project, please message the PTA leader, Mark Dixon, at email@example.com with “Shade Structures” in the subject. Without your help, the shade structures cannot be realized! This is a good opportunity to be an involved parent.
