Parkview Happenings…

Thank you to our families that joined us for our Parkview Pride assembly last week!

A reminder from School Council: Tuesday, April 23rd morning is the last opportunity to drop off items supporting our Bag2School Used Clothing Collection Fundraiser. Please ensure you drop off any final donations before the scheduled 9:00am pickup. Please consider donating unwanted men’s, women’s and children’s clothing items including footwear, outwear, towels, linens, belts, handbags and backpacks to help keep them out of the landfill while raising money for our school. Items can be brought into Parkview in any bag, box or bin you have at home. The more items we collect, the more money we raise!

Intermediate Music Night will be on April 23rd. Communication was sent out to Intermediate families regarding tickets.
