Welcome

  • Welcome to Parkside Elementary School. Our staff, students, PTA, and families work together as a learning community to assure that every child is successful. Please feel free to stop in and visit us.
     
    VISION STATEMENT:
    Parkside School believes in the importance of forming a strong partnership with parents and community members in order to positively impact the students in our school.  To promote effective parent involvement, the staff works together collaboratively with one another and welcomes and encourages parents and community members to join us in the educational program.  
     
    MISSION STATEMENT: 
    The Parkside Elementary School faculty and staff believe that all students can grow intellectually, personally, socially, and physically.  We believe that each of these dimensions is equally important to the total well being of the individual.  Together with parents and other partnerships, it is our goal to focus attention on each of these areas in order for every student to become a responsible and productive citizen.
