All motions were approved.
School Board Recognition Annual Celebration Program
Elementary students began the program by thanking the school board for the career awareness activities they are doing that help them discover their inner purpose or "spark." They dressed up as the person they'd like to be when they grow up and told about interest inventories they took to discover how personal skills and interests help shape future career path goals. The presentation was led by the elementary guidance team.
The middle schools partnered to prepare a presentation of thanks for the bully prevention initiative that is going on this year. For the first time in Parkland history, both middle schools' staff and students were bused to PHS for a district-wide bully prevention assembly. This initiative continued throughout the year with regular class chats, parent programs, and student pledges to TAKE A STAND against bullying.
PHS prepared a video that showcased the many ways that clubs and athletics perform community service. Students cited that the programs help to build integrity, character, and teach them about the greater good that they can achieve in the world around them.
