Golf Outing

5th Grade Golf Outing – Sunday, September 25  Tee Time:  11:00 a.m.
States Golf Course – Schoolcraft
This is a great fundraiser for 5th grade campers to enjoy a week at Sherman Lake!  Parkwood families don’t pay to have their children attend camp because of the generosity of families who help raise funds to send them and wonderful grant opportunities.  More details coming soon on how you can help out!

We’d love to have help at events and at the school.  Contact us or visit the Parkwood Upjohn Facebook Page or visit for information on upcoming events and volunteer opportunities!  See you all soon!
