Welcome to École Parkside School

February is "I Love to Read" Month.  To celebrate, the students in our Book Club Exploratory Learning have requested that we have a daily 15 minute Stop, Drop and Read experience.  All staff and students are expected to carry a book with them throughout the day during all of February.  Mrs. Klassen, our school Administrative Assistant, will randomly announce a 15 minute reading break for everyone.

You will notice a few new pictures in our banner.  This past week, some of our grade 8 students had the opportunity to explore the vocational programs that will be available to them when they enter high school.  We had students visit the Culinary Arts, Building Construction, Auto Mechanics, Heavy Duty Mechanics, Autobody, Hairstyling and Esthetics Programs.  Check out the story on Pembinavalleyonline to learn more.

As well, our students enrolled in Dramatic Arts had the opportunity to learn about the skills of improvisation during an afternoon clinic with experts from the Manitoba Theatre for Young People.

On Thursday, February 6th, we will also be hosting our annual Winter Concert.  Please come for 7pm to our school gym to enjoy the music performances of our bands, choir and jazz band.
