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!
