    Overall our students did a good job the first full week of 2020. We still have some students who are consistently arriving late to school and some who try to be in the hallway during instruction time.

    I know that as soon as we turn the corner at January our seniors can start to see the finish line. If you are the parent of a senior, please take time to remind them that the finish line is both near and far away. Many seniors may need to be encouraged to continue to stay focused all the way through. If we can learn from past seniors, seniorities can set in early for some and they can start to feel finished too soon. This can then result in seniors needing to make up for lost effort at the last minute. Please continue to encourage your 2020 senior.

    If you didn’t make it to the game on Friday night, you missed a great evening. The fall weather, football and cheering on our team. Though our team did not win, I am proud of their effort and all the fans that came out. Some Parkside parents shared with me how well our fans did and how LOUD they could cheer.
