Free Breakfast and Lunch at Parkwood for 2019-20!
Kalamazoo Public School has expanded its participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program, which allows the district to provide free breakfast and lunch for every elementary school student in the district. All students enrolled in at Parkwood Upjohn are eligible to receive meals at no charge!

We Love Our Teachers!
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!
