Welcome to the Home of the Panthers!
Parkview is a school with a population of about 550 students. Our reputation is one of academic excellence combined with extensive complementary options and an ever growing athletics program. We are a district site for a variety of programs such as English Language Learning, Interactions and Community Mental Health. Here at Parkview School, we are committed to the academic and personal success of all students. The success of our students depends on the cooperation and extreme dedication of school staff, teachers, students, parents and the community. The high expectations we set at school lead to excellent results for all our students, both in school and in the community.
On behalf of the staff at Parkview School, I wish you all a wonderful summer vacation. In preparing for the end of one school year, we are also planning and making preparations for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. As always, the upcoming year promises to be exciting and filled with new learning opportunities!
As we reflect upon the overall year at Parkview School, we cannot help but be grateful for all of the support that we have had from the parents, staff, students and community. We continue to strive to build a safe and caring learning environment where students experience success. It is through the partnership between students, parents and school that this is accomplished. We look forward to your continued support of teaching and learning in the years to come and welcome you to take an active role in your child’s education by participating in our school.
The end of June is always a heartfelt time to say good-bye and acknowledge the contributions to our school community. We fondly bid farewell to our wonderful Grade 9 students and thank them for their outstanding leadership and spirit throughout their years at Parkview School! We send them off with blessings for continued success in their high school years! We are also very proud of our little Kindergarten children who are now moving up to big Grade 1 students who will now stay for lunch!
Finally, we wish to extend our sincere appreciation and accolades to our staff that are moving on to new adventures in their careers! These outstanding staff members include: Mrs. Zuber (elementary CMHC), Ms. Larsen (grade 5), Ms. Dominque (Jr. high Language Arts), Ms. Potiuk (Jr.high Social Studies), Mrs. Wan (visiting teacher from China) and Mr. Michaud (EA in CMHC). We also wish to acknowledge and say farewell to Mr. Gado (Jr. high Science), who will be starting the reinvention of his new career in retirement!
To assist us with our classroom allocations, we ask that all parents contact the school in August to update us on any school changes or if your child will be absent during the first few days of school. All schools are staffed according to a formula that factors in student enrollment and program needs. As we are a growing school, student enrollment can fluctuate over the summer; therefore we are unable to confirm class sizes and placement of students until the final enrollment counts are determined.
Just a reminder our first day of classes will be on Thursday, September 1, 2016.
With peace and in appreciation on behalf of the Parkview Staff,
Mr. D. Beharry
