About Us

Welcome to the Parkwood PTA Website!

Our mission is to build a community at Parkwood between our teachers, parents and students by respecting our diverse student body and creating and contributing to programs that enhance our students’ learning experience.

The Parkwood PTA makes grants to every classroom, offers enrichment program scholarships, and funds numerous other needs throughout the year.

The PTA’s ongoing programs include:

  • Quarterly newsletter and social media updates
  • Enrichment Programs
  • Cut N’ Chat
  • Monthly Grounds Clean-up
  • Monday Morning Coffee
  • Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students)
  • Safety Kit Creation

The PTA also funds special events like the Back-to-School BBQ, Tea & Tissues, Heritage Classes and Heritage Night, the talent Show, and a school dance.

All of these activities are made possible by the generous support from our community through donations from PTA fundraisers such as our “Invest in Parkwood” Fall Giving Campaign, Community Garage Sale, Auction, eScrip and Box Tops for Education. Our Invest in Parkwood Campaign is happening now, please consider donating today!

And none of this would be possible without our fantastic volunteers! The PTA holds regular monthly meetings on the first Thursday of every month from 7:00-9:00pm in the school library and are open to all members of the Parkwood community. If you have a special interest we can also get you in contact with the appropriate PTA representative. Please click here to see a full list of Parkwood PTA’s programs and events.

Please join the Parkwood PTA today! Online registration is available.

You can also email any of our board members or committee chairs directly with questions, comments or ideas. We are always looking for more helping hands!
