Parsons Partyline

Friday, December 18, 2015

Thank you for all that you do. Enjoy your friends and family this holiday season. Get plenty of rest, be safe in your travels and we will see everyone in 2016!

Local Heros

Thank you to Nicole and the cafeteria staff for preparing breakfast for us each morning this week.

Our Sunshine committee did a wonderful job preparing a great holiday party. It was wonderful to see everyone just enjoying an evening with their Parsons' family.

A big Thank You to Susie Pittman for opening her home to all of us and being hostess extraordinaire!

Preparing for Winter Break

Please be sure to turn off all lights, computers and printers.

Before students leave, have them stack chairs and move them to one side of the room. Do not put chairs on the tiles, so the custodians can scrub them over the break.

If you are not taking your laptop home, please be sure to store it in a secure location. Student laptops should also be put away for the holiday.
