Car Show/Flea Market- The day was a great event! Many thanks to Shana Orton, Nancy Pantoja, Gladys Privado-Sanchez, Lennie Ram, Daniela Relaford, Josh and Julianna Rees, Sharon Chetcuti, Ilia Jackson, Jennifer Baxter – I hope I didn’t miss anyone! All of the support was fantastic!  

Parkside Attendance! So many classes have received the silver A! This is how it works: each time a class has no absences and no tardies they receive one letter of PARKSIDE- once they have all of the letters- they get a silver A. After the silver A, they keep going to see if they can get PARKSIDE again, then they get a gold A. So far, the classes to reach the Silver A’s are: Ms. Granata, Ms. Kendall, Mrs. Bittle, Mr. Breon, Ms. Brassfield, Ms. Wessling, Miss Pickard, Ms. Chan, Ms. Thompson and Miller’s, Ms. Ramirez and Ms. Napier classes!  Ms. Granata’s class just won the gold today (6/3/15)!

Teachers leaving us!  Sarah Bittle and Paul Torres are leaving Parkside! Both are teachers in the traditional program. Paul is moving to Laurel School, which is closer to his home and easier for supporting his 4th grade son. Sarah is moving to Highlands Elementary for similar reasons, to make life easier for her family! We will miss both of them very much, both are wonderful teachers and have given so much to the Parkside community!

FYI- I am trying out Twitter- trying to keep dates and activities up-to-date- follow me- @sheilaspieller

Thanks so much for all of your support-

Mrs. Spieller
