We Love Our Teachers!

suppliesTeacher Supply Request List

We asked our teachers what they needed to have a successful school year. Because we know the parents of Parkwood-Upjohn Elementary enjoy helping out, a list was compiled of frequently needed items. If you have resources and want to help, here are some items that will help out. Please bring supplies in to the office or ask what items your teacher could use. THANK YOU!

  1. I’m very concerned about the constant line of cars, picking up their children, in the no parking area across from the buses! This needs to be addressed.


    • Hi Ken, since Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year, we decided to have a dance the following week to avoid the schedule conflict. We’re glad you like the dance, and we hope you will bring your little one to our Snow Ball on Feb. 21!
