School is in Full Swing

Lots of stuff is happening the next few weeks as we get through September and into October.

Open House – September 20   5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Come visit with the teachers, see classrooms and the school.  There will be a Title I meeting in the gym at 5:30 p.m. to explain what Title I is and how it will be used at Parkwood.  After the meeting, teachers will be available in their classrooms.

PTO Meeting – September 20  7:00 p.m.
The first PTO meeting of the year will be held in the gym.  Come find out what the PTO has planned for the 2016-2017 school year, including HOOPLA coming in November.  You’ll be able to hear, too, about the many volunteer opportunities.  The PTO depends on volunteers to pull off successful events for the school community.

Picture Day – September 21
Smile Pretty!  Picture day takes place all day.  To order packets online, go to Lifetouch’s website.

Golf Outing Benefiting 5th Grade Camp – September 25   Tee Time 11:00 a.m.
State’s Golf Course – 20 E W Avenue in Vicksburg
Join us for a day at the links as we raise money to help our 5th grade kids go to Sherman Lake the week after Thanksgiving.  Parkwood-Upjohn is the only Kalamazoo Public School that goes a full week because of generous donations from parents and the community.  Download the form at the PTO website and see how you can help out.  Teams needs to be turned in by Thursday, September 22.

Save the Date!  Hoopla 2016 is scheduled for November 11!
