Each year, 150 of Parkwood Middle School's 8th grade students get to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Students will explore the history, culture and wildlife of this amazing area. This trip is fun, but also educational. This website will provide you with information about the trip's destinations, hotel contact information and other information about the trip.
GREAT news! Parkwood Middle now has access to thousands of eBooks through a program entitled Open eBooks. Open eBooks is an app containing thousands of popular and award-winning titles that are free to Parkwood students. This is a brand new initiative so at this time, the books are only accessible through an app on a smart phone or tablet. It can be downloaded on Apple and Android devices. Our students can access these eBooks using the Open eBooks app and read as many as they like without incurring any costs. The goal of Open eBooks is to encourage a love of reading and serve as a gateway to children reading even more often, whether in school, at libraries, or through other eBook reading apps.
If you would like access to these free eBooks, please email Lisa.email@example.com for directions along with a code and PIN number be sure to include your student's name and grade level in the email. I hope ALL Parkwood families will take advantage of this awesome opportunity.
Last week the PWMS 7th and 8th Grade Bands competed at the Middle School MPA, a contest sponsored by the South Central District Bandmasters Association. After performing several challenging pieces at each of their events, both bands earned a rating of “Excellent” according to the scoring system and were only a few points away from a “Superior” rating.
This weekend the Parkwood Middle School Science Olympiad Team participated in the regional competition held in Laurenberg, North Carolina. This was the team’s first year competing, and they were looking forward to getting some experience and learning the ropes. They never expected that they would come home with 12 medals, and overall second place varsity team finish, and an invitation to compete at the state Science Olympiad Competition held in Raleigh next month.
