The Parkway Parent Teacher Organization is dedicated to enriching the educational experience of all those who attend Parkway School. They have raised funds to support many areas including technology, physical education, after-school clubs, field trips and assemblies.  Parent volunteers are utilized daily in the library and on the playground.  Activities sponsored by the PTO offer students and their families the opportunity to socialize after the school day has ended at various events such as Student Game Night, Monthly Dinner Night Out, and our Ice Cream Social.

Circle of Giving

CIRCLE OF GIVING
One of the special things at Parkway School is The Circle of Giving. It was inspired by the life of a Parkway student named Kirk Vosbikian who lost his fight to cancer. The Circle of Giving is an exceptional all-school volunteer program that teaches us all the gift of giving and sharing to help others.
