Parkside activities

Our students like to stay active. Here are just a few of the extra activities we offer:

5th Grade Choir

Our fifth-grade choir performs at various sporting and community events year-round. Please contact our music teacher for more information.

Green Team

The Green Team members have been given a room or two at our school to take care of. On Tuesdays, they will dump and sort all the recycling papers during their lunch recess. They will then take turns dropping off at the recycle center every Wednesday during lunch recess.

Marathon

Each year, Parkside students have the opportunity to participate in the Marathon. Over the year, the students run laps at recess. Those who meet the required number of laps run the final mile in the spring at the middle school track. Family members are encouraged to attend or participate in the running of the last mile. Students receive a medal on their final lap. This enables the students to reach a goal and to stay physically fit!

Memory Keepers

These Parkside students get to help create a school yearbook. They also get to make posters and fun flyers for school events. Members have put together a letter to present to everyone at Parkside, which explains our yearbook and the process of creating it. Each member is assigned a staff member to collect pictures from. As the year continues, our members will put together the photos they collect and explain the events.

Parkside Leadership Team (PLT)

Only fifth-grade students make up this team. They get to create birthday cards for the Rocky Mountain Manor birthdays. Last year, they went over and celebrated with the citizens once a month. Due to COVID, they can’t, but they still send over birthday cards every month.

Recess Warriors

The Recess Warriors will be sorted and assigned to help take care of our recess equipment for each lunch and last recess.

Student Council

Through the student council, students exercise leadership opportunities as they work with school staff and administration to identify possible ways to improve their school and help the community. Each room elects a room representative in the fall to serve as a member of the student council. Students in second through fifth grade elect fifth-grade students to serve as student council officers.

Giving Opportunities

Community outreach is vital to us here at Parkside. Please take the opportunity to learn ways you can contribute to our community.
