Along For The Ride

This week, I have had the honor of learning more about our students.  I have been a bus rider, kickball pitcher, and classroom observer.  It has been awesome to see our students in a variety of settings.  I want to also be able to share these experiences with you.  Please take a moment to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.  In addition, to liking and following us, I would like to encourage you check in and take a look.  As a school, we want to make this one form of communication that allows us to keep our community updated. Over the course of the first few weeks, we expect each bus to have at least one special visitor riding with them.  Ask your child(ren) if they have had their special visitor yet.  If not, they might want to be on the look out because someone will be coming soon!

Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017
The big day is almost here!  On Monday, August 21, all Parkway students will participate in learning experiences related to the solar eclipse.  Teachers will practice and review safety procedures prior to going outside.  One important reminder is that each student of Carman Trails will receive a pair of glasses that the district has provided.  Glasses do NOT need to be purchased for students that attend Carman Trails or any other Parkway School.  Students will be closely monitored and wear their safety glasses while outside.   Parents are invited to celebrate this special event from 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM.  We will have signs that direct you to our "Eclipse Viewing Locations" in addition to the sign in table.  Thank you so much for the interest in the glasses for the eclipse.  We are happy to report we were able to sell all 100 pairs of glasses!
