Have a great summer!

Monday, June 28th marks the end of the school year for students. We wish everyone a happy and safe summer vacation. Please continue to read to your child over the summer break and have your child read to you. This will help them keep up their skills and maintain the level of reading that they reached this year.

We will see you in September! The first day of classes for students in September will be Tuesday, September 7, 2021.

World Bee Day – Thursday, May 20, 2021

Parkside will be celebrating World Bee Day on Thursday, May 20th. We are asking everyone to wear yellow and black, or even just one of those colours, or something with a bee theme on it. Mme. Natalie and the students in Class 3F are Parkside’s resident bee experts having had the opportunity to paint a beehive that will become a working hive. They undertook research to learn about bees and had a beekeeper visit the class who provided them with even more fascinating information about these very important insects.

Let’s show our support for world-wide efforts to SAVE THE BEES. Life on this planet depends on it!
