On January 27, 2016, recruiters from the U.S. Army brought a Distracted Driver Activity Trailer to Parkwood High School and parked it in the bus lot. Classes visited the trailer throughout the day, participating in programs and activities designed to educate them about the dangers and consequences of driving without paying attention.
Each year, thousands of children deal with life-threatening illnesses and the stressors that accompany them. Students in Morgon Outing's Apparel and Development class decided to help these children by sewing handmade pillow cases to support Ryan’s Case for Smiles, an organization that comforts young patients and their families by distributing whimsical pillowcases in hospitals worldwide.
For the second month in a row, a Parkwood student has been named the Bank of North Carolina UCPS Athlete of the Month. The December recipient is senior tennis player Meredith Little.
