"Doing The Math!"

Thursday, May 24, 2018


This week ten first graders joined
Officer Doodle Seitzinger to talk "food!" 
They were surprised to find out Doodle
baking vanilla scones for his wife.

From there, this group got
serious about decorating sugar cookies.
Oh lots of cookies, icing, and sprinkles!
Deliveries came next.  You
cannot leave out the bus drivers.
This team bestowed goodies up & 
down the hallways from "The Cookie Cart." 
They gifted each & every member of the 
Parkside staff and their final stop was to
the office of our principal, Mrs. Hayes!

of life.  It turns what we have
into enough, and more."
