8th grade Social Studies students from Parkwood Middle School have placed among the top schools in the nation for the fourth year in a row. The students recently competed in the National Social Studies League competition. Taking the exam along with schools from 15 other states, the students competed against their peers on a wide range of American History topics. The National Social Studies League exams are administered once a year to students from grades 2 through 12. The test measures students’ knowledge of American history from the colonial to the modern era.
Recently, students from the Parkwood Middle School yearbook class and Student Council teamed up to renovate the school’s garden. Together with their advisors, Mr. Daniel Stanford and Mr. Jordan Marmara, the students worked with the PTO to plan and renovate the area in the middle of the school. The memorial garden is in memory of Parkwood's beloved football coach and community member, Bo McWhorter.
