All the Carolina Panthers gear was a great sight to see at PWMS last week! We raised over $900 from our fundraiser! Great Job! Proceeds go to the Keep Pounding Fund and the Union County Community Shelter. Thank you for all of your donations!

Students and Staff at Parkwood Middle School are getting ready to celebrate the big game this Sunday! Our cafeteria features an incredible mural created by Ms. Howie’s art students of Carolina Panther, Thomas Davis. In addition to showing our Panthers Pride, Parkwood Middle School saw this as a great opportunity to give back to the community.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Intelligence plus character--that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate.” [ Maroon Tiger (January-February 1947)] At Parkwood Middle School our AIG department has fully embraced that challenge. As a part of a unit on Holocaust literature, our students took a trip to the Levine Jewish Community Center in Charlotte to take part in The Butterfly Project. This is a worldwide effort to remember the 1.5 million children who died as a result of the Holocaust.
