About Parkside

Parkside Elementary School is nestled in the quaint Parkside neighborhood of San Mateo.

Our school offers families a choice of either a traditional learning environment or a Montessori based environment for their child.

Parkside was the first school in the San Mateo-Foster City School District to implement the year round calendar schedule in the district. This continuous learning schedule helps students retain what they have learned by offering a shorter break during the summer.

Principal's Message

November 24, 2014

No decision has been made yet about our school by the SMFC School Board. But, the STEAM staff (Traditional Program) will have a meeting with the STEM staff on December 9th! We are beginning to research and learn about STEAM curriculum!  Also, the Montessori program is making plans for more collaboration with North Shoreview Montessori.

Don’t forget the PTA Holiday Boutique that will be held on December 4th and 5th. A few of the classes will be having their students do a song or poem for the Holiday season. The PTA Board, and Gladys Privado Sanchez, the Boutique Chairperson have put in a great deal of time planning and coordinating this annual event!

We wish all families a very peaceful Thanksgiving this week! Remember that your children will be bringing home their report cards this Wednesday.

Happy Thanksgiving

- Sheila Spieller, Parkside Principal
