Principal's Letter - Welcome

  • Welcome Back Parkside Families!

    Parkside Elementary is only one of two schools not in Program Improvement in Pittsburg.  By focusing on attendance, close communication with our parents, making every lesson count and making our students part of setting their educational goals, we have achieved two major goals.
    Parkside Elementary school is that "dream" school that you want for your child.  Many times our new families say, "They did not do that at our child's old school," because we challenge our students and expect them to do their best.  Our staff of highly qualified professionals is extremely committed to your child.  Parkside's teachers and support staff go that extra mile to educate our children.
    Our first priority at Parkside is the safety of our children.  Our parents trust us to take care of their children, and we take pride in keeping our children safe.
    Parkside has a very detailed curriculum that is Common Core State Standards based.  Our students are assessed at frequent intervals, and each child is taught based on the results of our assessments.  All of our students aspire to be academically proficient, and they are recognized for that achievement.  Thank you, Parkside families, for joining us on our journey in educating your children effectively.
    Our Parkside kids will always remember that PARKSIDE RULES!!!

    See you soon,
