November 28 – Annual Parent Athletics Meeting, PHS Auditorium, 7 PM.

For All Parents of PSD Athletes who are currently in Grades 6-11. This is a “must- attend” opportunity for all parents of Parkland middle school and high school athletes to get information and ask questions regarding athletics in the Parkland School District. Participation in interscholastic sports begins in 7th grade. However, there are many items that need to be reviewed before a student begins a spot. Physical exam requirements and deadlines will be reviewed as well as training information which begins before the actual sports season starts. This is why attendance by 6th-grade parents is very important.

November 29, Shop at Talbots to Benefit the Parkland Education Foundation! Bring an item for the Foundation’s annual silent auction and enjoy complimentary refreshments while you shop! Click here for the flyer.

Nov 30, 7 PM Mayhem, PHS Main Gym. Join the boys and girls basketball programs to kick off the season with a fun event for all Parkland families. There will be shooting competitions, basket raffles, performances by the PHS Cheerleaders, Drum Line, Dance Team and STEP Team, contests, prizes and food. All proceeds benefit Angel 34.

Dec 1, Reading Camp-In at Schnecksville Elementary, 3:45 – 5:45 PM. More than 200 Schnecksville students will camp out at their school with flashlight reading, camp songs, a book give-away, s’mores and a pizza dinner! Reading Specialist Taryn Gergar has gone all out to make this a special 1st-time event for students.
