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!
We are now on REMIND!
Text the message @pupjohnpto to the number 81010.
If you’re having trouble with 81010, try texting @pupjohnpto to (313) 447-0622.
Or go to rmd.at/pupjohnpto in your browser on your phone.
Many of the teachers use REMIND to provide alerts on homework and activities. The PTO plans to use it notifying you on important events, cancellations, and other items.
