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.

The annual book drive in honor of Mount Laurel School alumni Eric Eberling (EBO) is in full swing.

A recommended book list and more info on the program can be found at http://www.reachoutandread.org/  .
