    School Philosophy

    Mercedem non sine labore ad - No reward without effort 

    At Parkview School, we believe a school provides a safe, secure and caring environment where students are challenged to achieve to the best of their abilities. All students are expected to be responsible citizens and learners, and to be respectful of all individuals and their differences.  Teachers are required to ensure that learning and evaluating strategies that best fit the students are used, with an understanding that learning and evaluations of learning are shared with parents, and students. Parkview School staff are committed to high quality teaching and learning, and share in the leadership required for all students to not only succeed, but to become life-long learners.

Principal's Message

 

The Importance of School Community

 

For any school to be successful, it is critical to establish a common, unified community.
Parkview School is, for the most part, working towards this goal. The students, parents, and staff
believe in our school and in striving for educational excellence. But there seems to be more than
that—we also have a strong sense of Panther Pride, an “esprit de corps” if you will.
What develops this community? How can we make the community even stronger? Thomas J.
Sergiovanni says the following about school community from his book titled “Leadership:
 What’s in it for schools?”
 
“In communities of responsibility it is norms, values, beliefs, purposes, goals, standards, hopes,
and dreams that provide the ideas for a morally based leadership. These ideas are not mandated
scripts that required carbon copy conformity. They are, instead, more like frameworks that
function as compasses which provide people with a heightened sense of understanding, meaning,
and significance. When leadership is morally based, its effect on spirit, commitment, and results
is not only strong but obligatory, allowing the school to function as a community of
Sergiovanni goes on to include a list as to the benefits of developing community.
  
      1. Community helps satisfy the need that teachers, parents and students have to be connected to
 
            each other and the school.
 
      2. Community helps everyone in the school focus on the common good.
 
      3. Community provides students with a safe harbor in a stormy sea – a place where they are
 
            accepted unconditionally.
 
      4. Community supports learning; and
 
      5. Community builds relationships and responsibilities.
 
We have a special community at Parkview School. I truly enjoy being with the many families
associated with our school at events such as Parent Council, school concerts, parent–teacher
nights and sporting events that are presented throughout the year.  Thank you for making Parkview 
the awesome school that it is, and let’s continue to hold firm to all the ideals and values upon which
Parkview School was formed.
