Photos from today’s historic Presidential address!

Today at Parkside, we are proud to announce that all of our students listened to President Obama’s “Back to School” address  with intensity and excitement.  Students  in grades K-5 were inspired by the address and used the President’s message to launch dialogue within the classroom, focus on their personal educational goals and recommit themselves to learning.  Teachers reinforced the President’s message by using the suggested lesson plan provided by the Department of Education website as well as creating their own lesson plans to compliment the address.  A big thank you to Dr. Luck, Dr. Haynes, Ms. Shanks and our phenomenal classroom teachers for making today memorable for our children.

Parents, continue the learning at home!  Try these sites!
