Congratulations to the following students who will be riding into summer on a brand new bike courtesy of Andy Fortenbery of the Mantissa Corporation in Charlotte, NC. His generous donation enabled teachers to nominate students who showed tremendous growth this school year in either academics, behavior, athletics, artistic, or leadership skills. We then held a raffle and these 16 lucky students won a bike.

Morning Drop-off Procedures & Tardies: Students may access the building at 7:15. All students will report to the cafeteria. School begins at 7:40 when students are released from the cafeteria to go to their classes. The tardy bell rings at 7:55. Any student not inside their classroom at 7:55 will need to sign in at the office and receive a tardy slip. Please allow sufficient time for a student to make it all the way to their classroom. If a student is tardy to class in the morning, a parent will be called to come to the office to check the student in late. If you drop off your student at or after 7:55, please come into the front office to check your student into the school. This procedure ensures the safety of the child and that the parent is informed and consents to their child arriving late to school.

FREE Money for our School!
If you shop at Harris Teeter or Lowe's Foods, please be sure to link your account to Parkway School. Those stores donate money to our school based on sales amounts from accounts linked specifically to our school. This is one way you can help our school financially.
Educational Family Travel Requests
Please remember the deadline for submitting Educational Family Travel Request forms is five days prior to the trip. Forms are available on the Parkway School web page under the "For Parents" tab. Once the forms are submitted, parents will be sent a form indicating whether the absences have been approved or denied. If approved, the student will be given an assignment to complete pertaining to their trip and will also be given assignments to make up. If denied, the absences will be coded as "unexcused." If you have questions about travel requests or absences, you may contact Mrs. Buckner or our School Social Worker, Megan Langdon, at 828-264-3032.
