School Holidays - WS/FC schools will be closed for the Thanksgiving holidays on Wednesday, November 25, Thursday, November 26, and Friday, November 27. When school resumes on Monday, November 30, it will be an "A" day.
Thanks, Rescue House! - When Parkland purchased truckloads of hardwood mulch recently, the volunteers from one of our business partners, Rescue House, tackled the hard job of spreading the mulch around our campus. We owe them a big THANK YOU for helping to beautify our school's campus!
Homemade Pies for Sale! - Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Save yourself some time by serving a delicious homemade pie from Mrs. Lokant! The French Club is selling pre-orders for homemade pies (all made from scratch) by Mrs. Laurel Lokant, IB Coordinator and French teacher. The money raised will be used to help students going on the Exchange Trip to France in the spring. For Thanksgiving, you must order your pie by this Friday, November 13.
Order your delicious pies by sending an email (best method) or calling the school and leaving a message (336-771-4700 extension 50926). Orders can be picked up at Parkland on Monday, November 16 or delivered with an additional $2.00 fee. The pies will be frozen to stay fresh for the holidays. Cash only, please.
