We’ve been able to raise over $19,000 for Parkway school!!!
As a reminder, donating will remain open until Friday, April 2nd for any last minute donations. Thanks for making this our best year yet!
Families-- don’t forget there’s still time to check to see if your Dance-a-thon donation is eligible for a corporate matching gift!
If you haven’t already, be sure to submit the necessary information to your corporation by April 2nd!
Thank you for your continued support!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com to get the grading pages so you can check your child's work.
5) Email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
