PTA's Bonus Math Program

The Parkway PTA is pleased to once again offer the Math Superstars program. There are a few changes due to our new structure at school. Parents will grade their child’s papers with the answer key and email parkwaymathsuperstars@gmail.com when the assignment is complete. 

Math Superstars program is designed to complement your child's regular classroom mathematics curriculum. Math Superstars provides students with an opportunity to practice mathematical skills appropriate for their grade level while at the same time participating in problem-solving experiences. Students are encouraged to do only one sheet per week, however, all work will be accepted throughout the school year.

1) Go to Parkway PTA Programs page: https://www.greenwichschools.org/parkway-school/pta/programs
2) Go to Math Superstars
3) Download the right assignments for your child.  
4) Email parkwaymathsuperstars@gmail.com to get the grading pages so you can check your child's work. 
5) Email parkwaymathsuperstars@gmail.com with child's name, grade and assignment # when your child completes an assignment and I will keep track of the progress.
6) All students who participate receive a certificate and for those who complete all 25 will receive a trophy! 

Email Parkwaymathsuperstars@gmail.com with any questions.

PARKWAY WELCOMES CINDY BOUCARD! 

We are thrilled to welcome Mrs. Cindy Boucard to Parkway as our Interim Assistant Principal! In case you did not get to read her introduction from Dr. Jones, here it is!

We are very fortunate to have someone with Cindy's expertise and experience working in the Greenwich Public Schools joining us during Mr. Libby's leave. After only a short time in our building, she has jumped in with both feet - getting to know our staff, our students and already communicating and meeting with parents. We are grateful for the level of professionalism and commitment that she has already shown to our Parkway community! Welcome aboard, Cindy!!

"AUG 31, 2020

Greenwich Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Toni Jones has appointed Ms. Cindy Boucard as Leave Replacement Assistant Principal for Parkway School, effective today. Ms. Boucard will hold this leave replacement position through at least December for Mr. Jeffrey Libby. Most recently, Ms. Boucard held the role of Special Education Teacher for New Lebanon School. 

In this role as Assistant Principal, Ms. Boucard will support the supervision and evaluation of staff, facilitation of the special education process, maintaining a safe and welcoming school climate, and advocating on behalf of all students.

"Cindy will be a great addition to the Parkway School community in this temporary role, given her background in Special Education and her leadership roles both in our Central Office and at our schools. I look forward to seeing the value she brings to the school and its students," said Dr. Jones.

In addition to her most recent role as Special Education Teacher at New Lebanon School, Ms. Boucard has held interim roles with Greenwich Public Schools that have given her unique leadership experience. These roles include Interim Assistant Principal at New Lebanon School during February 2018 – April 2018, and again in March 2019 – May 2019, and a maternity leave replacement for a Special Education Coordinator at our Central Office, serving students across our entire District. 

Ms. Boucard has also worked in the GPS Summer School Program both as a Teacher and as a Site Coordinator, responsible for enrolling students, supervising instruction, staff evaluations and communications with parents. Prior to joining GPS in 2012, Ms. Boucard began her educational career in Bridgeport, CT as a Special Education Teacher.

Ms. Boucard shared, "I am excited to join the Parkway family. I look forward to supporting students, faculty, and families as we embark on this new school year and work together through these unprecedented times."

Ms. Boucard holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a concentration in Mental Health from Albertus Magnus College; a Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration in Autism Special Education, and an Intermediate Administration and Supervision 092 Certification from Sacred Heart University."
