A fond farewell to Ms. Dunnigan

Ms. Dunnigan has secured a position in the Halton Region District School Board as a teacher. This position is much closer to home for her and we congratulate her in her new position. We thank Ms. Dunnigan for all of her hard work with the students and families of Parkview and we wish her and her family the very best going forward.  Starting on Tuesday, Ms. Bolton will be filling in for Ms. Dunnigan for two weeks, until we are able to hire a teacher to fill the position of ELL teacher at Parkview until the end of June.

Lost and Found check this week

Tables will be set up in the front foyer this week for students and parents to claim lost items.  Any items left at the end of the week will be donated.  Thanks!
