4th Grade Parents
It is customary for the 4th grade parents to plan, coordinate, and host the 5th Grade Celebrations. This could be some yard signs and simple announcements. Although we will not return for the rest of the school year, please organize and plan something for our outgoing Sandpipers. Keep in mind that next year your celebration activities will be organized by the class behind you (the current 3rd grade class). There is a form created to gather names and ideas to help, and the PTA has funding to assist in your plans. Signup HERE!
General PTA Meeting
Please mark your calendars to attend the next (virtual) General PTA meeting on Monday, June 1st, 6pm. The link will be sent closer to the date. We will be voting in our new board and discussing ways to support Parkside in the new year (including our shade structures for the playgrounds!). Parkside is only as amazing as it is because the entire school family – INCLUDING YOU! – is involved!
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.
