    "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.

Welcome

Welcome to the Home of the Panthers!

Parkview is a community school serviing a population of about 550 students in kindergarten through grade 9.  Our motto is “No reward without effort” and it speaks to our belief that hard work drives success.  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 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.

 

Principal's Message

 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Parkview School!

Parkview School is an inviting and inclusive school community where diversity is celebrated and valued, and where relationships are nurtured. Emphasis is placed on creating an environment where students feel capable and connected and develop the skills required to be contributing members both in our school and in the broader community.

At Parkview School we believe that educating our students is a collective responsibility, shared by students and their families, school staff and also the entire community.  Through a collaborative approach in working together with you as partners, we will maximize the potential of all students. We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic and behavioral expectations, capitalizing on the value of strong working relationships.

In an effort to ensure all students are successful, faculty will use a differentiated approach to teaching. This approach includes thoughtful planning, strategic assessment of learning outcomes, and targeted, flexible instruction. Classroom teaching will be a blend of whole class, group, partner, and individual instruction. Students will be provided with multiple opportunities to make sense of ideas and information, practice new skills, and to demonstrate what they have learned.

Communication is key at Parkview School and is a shared responsibility.  Updates and information will be communicated mainly through the use of Schoolzone and students, parents and guardians are asked to check Schoolzone regularly. Also, feel free to drop by the school office and introduce yourself, share your feedback or concerns and ask any questions. Your questions, concerns, observations and feedback are welcomed and embraced so please connect with us by phone, email or in person at any time.

I look forward to an amazing year with our students, families and the entire Parkview Community!
