Read On......

Writing notes can make "a difference."
Just ask Mrs. Stoelting about this
message that was left to her
pupils one night last week.
It signed by our janitor.

Science is Amazing!

It all began at a simple launch pad.
Nothing was going to keep
eager onlookers away on this cloudy, chilly day!
It was time for second graders 
to send up their homemade rockets.
When it's your turn, Mr. Gray
helped each youngster at the booster.  
Success.....and this little one runs
out into the soccer field to retrieve her missile.  

Science & the questions it inspires is a beautiful beginning that begs to be continued!

Dream It, Do It......

Say "hello" to this fireman!
Red Ribbon Week found our students
dressing up as the kind of leaders 
they'll be as adults.
How about teachers, dentists & nurses?
Visions of the day these friends will
be heros, detectives, and veterinarians.
Headed toward careers as cowgirls,
astronauts, superheros, and an engineers!
He'll be a professional waiter.
Looking forward someday to seeing policemen, pro athletes, anglers, attorneys, singers, royal princesses, reporters, and doctors.  
Futures begin
with dreams and desire!

The script for the play was written by

Autumn is never complete without a
trip to Dorney's Pumpkin Patch,
with our classmates.
Thank you to our families and community
members who purchased pizzas, as a part

Help and Serve

Every inch of this fire truck
seems to say,"I'm here to help and serve."  

Offering a helping hand?  Yes they do!  
Members of our local fire department
made a special effort to reach every child
at Parkside, during the recent
Fire Safety Week.

They even provided a free smoke
detector to any family who needed one.

Honored Artist

We're so very excited to give
a special "shout out" to P.J.H.S.
sixth grader, Mr. Dawson Pinkstaff!
Last year he created a poster in our Creative Literacy class and his teacher Mrs. Felty entered his design in an annual contest that supports contributions bus drivers
make to the 
safety of school children.
His artwork was selected as the "best in show,"
from student entries across Illinois.
Congratulations Dawson!
