Dear Students and Parents:

Welcome back to the 2019 – 2020 school year where we will do “Whatever It Takes!”. At Parkway Elementary, our students are properly prepared to be 21st Century thinkers using critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication to develop their decision-making and problem-solving skills. Using inquiry-based learning and rigorous content, our educators challenge all students to explore real-world problems and engage in meaningful learning.

The teachers and administrative team hold the highest standards for all students at Parkway Elementary. High expectations for student respect, responsibility, and integrity help create a positive learning environment where all students feel enthusiastic about their school experiences. It is our goal that each child will reach their greatest potential both academically and behaviorally, along with becoming positive leaders.

The collaboration with the staff, students, families, and community members at Parkway Elementary creates a culture that promotes the philosophy of life-long learning. It is my belief that this is the type of culture where all members of our school community can thrive.

As a member of your school community, I am excited to support each family in preparing our students at Parkway Elementary for success. My office door is always open. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Althea DaCosta, Assistant Principal
