Parkside is lucky to have an active Parent Teacher Association. Our main role is to build strong working relationships between parents and teachers in support of our students. Last year, we raised a significant amount of money for Parkside through our Fall Festival, monthly bake sales, annual Parkside Stride 5K Fun Run, book fairs, and other fundraisers. We use these funds to support great projects, like this year’s school supply purchase and general teacher needs.
We need you to be involved! All PTA meeting dates will be announced through school newsletters and on our Facebook parent group. The first meeting will be held on Thursday, August 26. We hope to have an in-person and zoom option to join the meeting. Find out how you can get involved, including joining one of our committees and becoming a room parent.
