High School Volunteers Needed!
Come be a Heart and Sole Coach at Parkwood Middle this Fall!!
We need you! Heart and Sole (A Girls on the Run program for girls grades 6-8) is a chance to get outside, laugh, jump and cheer. Mostly importantly, it's a chance for you to help girls realize their full potential.
You do NOT need to be a runner to coach- just have a passion for promoting healthy lifestyle and self-esteem for young girls! It is a GREAT way to earn volunteer hours and help Middle School girls with self-esteem.
Practices will be at Parkwood Middle on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 PM.
Training, curriculum and materials provided.
Fall 2017 season will start the week of September 18th and end with theGingerSnap 5k on Saturday, Dec. 2nd.
If interested or if you have questions, please contact Bonnie Grote - GOTR

Thanks to Naviance, a college and career readiness software, students as young as 11 years old will soon be able to get a head start on planning for their future. The software – which will be provided at no cost to UCPS families – will ultimately help students as young as sixth grade identify their strengths, explore career interests and create education plans for high school and beyond.
Ms. Outing’s Apparel classes have worked diligently to plan, design, and create children’s dresses for the young girls at the Good Shepherd Orphanage in Nyahururu, Kenya. The facility holds 68 children and includes a greenhouse, school, and farm with animals.
On Tuesday, March 14th and Wednesday, March 15th Union County’s Career and Technical Education hosted a Career Connections day for all 8th grade students in the county. This is an annual event that is presented every year. These students had the opportunity to tour many different program areas and academies that are offered across the county at all of our high schools. Our own Parkwood students and teachers, as well as many from other high schools spent time with our 8th graders explaining and demonstrating all the diverse programs and academies that we have to offer in UCPS.
