This year, Parkway School is working to include additional after-school activities that promote the enjoyment of learning, increase basic skills and parent involvement. After-school events are funded in partnership with Title 1.
To start the year off right, in November Parkway hosted the second annual Title 1 BINGO Night. Students and their parents played bingo for prizes. District Supervisors in Math and Language Arts were on hand to give parents tips and information on how to help their children be better readers and math problem solvers.
February introduced the Crazy 8s Math Club to remind students math is fun! The club runs for two eight-week sessions. There is an activity each week which solves a different math problem.
March brings the Parent/Child Book Clubs. Students in 3rd–5th grades will read a novel with their parents at home and be treated to dinner and an activity associated with the week’s reading assignment every week for five weeks. This club was such a huge success last year it is expanding to include a K-2nd grade version. This will be a family evening event with dinner, reading fiction and non-fiction storybooks that are theme driven weekly for five weeks.
