Welcome to Parkside Elementary

On June 11, Parkside hosted a Drive-Thru Promotion for our amazing 5th graders. Parkside staff and teachers celebrated the accomplishments of our students. Even Parker Panther, our mascot, joined to cheer on each student. We wish all the best to our new middle schoolers!

We want to provide all families, all staff and secondary students opportunities to share feedback, input and ideas on how we can support learning experiences in distance and in-person learning. Please help us better support you by completing the linked survey. The survey will run from March 29 to April 9. Results will help us to plan for this spring and next fall.

It's so good to see you! With first-day butterflies and smiles in our eyes, we welcomed more than 1,000 fourth- and fifth-grade students back to in-person learning this week. It was the first time in more than a year these students have entered a classroom.

More teachers across Highline are using a standards-based approach to grading assignments and giving feedback. We hope to pilot a new standards-based report card soon and want to hear your thoughts. We invite all staff, families and students to attend a virtual focus group to provide feedback on standards-based grading and the new report card.

Students stand at a distance during hybrid learning.

Governor Inslee has announced that schools now have the option to use three-foot distancing between students rather than six feet. This change may not apply to middle and high school students who rotate between classes during the school day, depending on community transmission levels. We do not plan to change our distancing standard this spring in Highline.
