Parkdale Elementary Weekly Update
We survived a pretty crazy week last week. I hope you all found some rest this weekend.
Have a great week,
- Thank you to Debbie, Kristi, Jasmin, Elise, Mara, Shelly, Holly, Luis for helping to get state testing kicked off last week. This can be stressful. I appreciate how our staff works together and supports each other through these times.
- Thank you to Juan, Terry, and Heidi for their extra efforts this week getting ready for after school events like the school board meeting and the health fair.
- Thank you to all the ExCEL staff for their efforts in getting ready for the health fair. Thank you for making signs and to Jasmin for making the ExCEL video. Ask Jasmin to show you the video if you haven't seen it yet!
School Board Meeting on Wednesday and Budget Update
Dan Goldman shared a budget update with us that I wanted to pass along. The original amount of money the district was being required to cut (nearly 1 million) has been reduced significantly based on an increased revenue calculation from the state as well as savings the district has made in a few areas, especially the savings around the school day start and stop time. This all means that, for now at least, things aren't looking as grim as they were a week ago.
Health Fair a Huge Success!
