The Parkway PTA is excited once again to offer Wordly Wise to our students in Grades 2-5. Wordly Wise is a vocabulary program designed to provide systematic academic vocabulary instruction which develops the critical link between vocabulary and reading comprehension. The words presented are commonly encountered in grade-level literature, textbooks and standardized tests.
A student's participation in Wordly Wise is completely optional. Students interested in participating in the program will sign a "participation contract" and receive a workbook with lessons to complete independently at home. Each grade will have a parent coordinator who will provide summary review questions to also be done at home. The grade level coordinator will schedule days to give a multiple choice test for the lessons. This will generally happen at Parkway School in the morning before the school day begins. These tests will usually be given for a pair of lessons and will happen every three to four weeks. The tests will be checked and returned to students. Participation will be tracked but results will not be tracked.
Wordly Wise is a fun challenge, without the pressure of being graded. Students will learn new words and their meanings, so give it a try!
Please register by MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 (however, you may join at any time).
a. If a student is interested in participating in Wordly Wise, please register here.
b. Each student must print out, sign and return to the student's classroom teacher or the Main Office the Wordly Wise Participation Contract in an envelope marked with "Wordly Wise Participation Contract - Tim Hanna."

The Parkway PTA is pleased to offer the Math Superstars program 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 and to comply with deadlines, however, all work will be accepted throughout the school year.
Before a student may participate in the Math Superstars program, he/she must sign the Participation Contract.
Throughout the school year, please send us your photos of the first day of school, "Parade of Learners," Family Bingo Night, Fall Festival, Books & Bagels, and any other school activities and events for inclusion in the yearbook. The more pictures you send, the better our yearbook can be. Your photos should be sent to email@example.com.
