PARKWAY GIVES THANKS
NOVEMBER 2017

Programming Schedule

FRESH PRODUCE DRIVE - Monday, 11/13 - Sunday 11/19: The Parkway community donated 2,004 lbs of fresh fruits and vegetables (MORE THAN DOUBLE OUR ORIGINAL GOAL OF 1000 LBS) to support Neighbor-to-Neighbor whose mission it is to help our Greenwich neighbors in need. Way to go, Parkway!!

COLD WEATHER NECESSITIES DRIVE - Monday, 11/6 - Thursday, 11/30: We are collecting cold weather necessities for those in need in Greenwich, including coats, jackets, hats, mittens, gloves, snow gear and blankets. Children’s items preferred, but adult donations are also very much appreciated. There are boxes designated “PGC Winter Necessities Drive 2017” in the School Lobby. The clothing will be delivered to Neighbor-to-Neighbor to support our Greenwich neighbors in need.

READERS-ON-THE-ROAD - Tuesday, 11/28: Begun two years ago by a former Parkway student and her mom (Maguire and Trish Estill) with the help of several of our current Fourth Grade students, Readers-on-the-Road enables Parkway students to bring their reading expertise, funny character voices and arts & crafts skills to Head Start or similar preschool programs in Greenwich and the local areas. If interested in participating, please email parkwaygoodcitizens@gmail.com. Students in Grades 3, 4 and 5 only.

PROJECT ART - Month of November: Ms. Carrie Steele, Parkways art teacher, will lead all of the Parkway students in creating a masterpiece that will be donated to Stamford Hospital to raise the spirits of pediatric patients during the holiday season.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with PGC programming or if you have any questions, please contact Lisa Small at parkwaygoodcitizens@gmail.com.
