  • Logan Nichols announced as candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2020 Student of the Year.

    Parkwood Junior, Logan Nichols, has been accepted as a candidate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2020 Students of the Year campaign. Students are nominated based on leadership, passion to find a cure for blood cancers and involvement in the community. Candidates then participate in a national seven-week challenge to raise funds and awareness for the fight against blood cancers. This year's campaign begins on January 26, 2020, and culminates on March 13, 2020 with a celebration in Charlotte. Last year alone, there were more than 5,000 high school students participating throughout the country and this year we are excited to have Logan represent Parkwood High! She is running in honor of Will Henely and River Peedin, both local cancer survivors. To get involved or learn more about the campaign, please visit www.StudentsoftheYear.org.

  • End of Course Testing Informaiton

    As we approach the end of a most unusual school year, we would like to share information on the expectations for students to participate in end-of-year testing. Unlike spring 2020, all students are expected to take the following tests as required by federal and state laws: 

    • End-of-course tests in NC Math 1, NC Math 3, English II, and Biology

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to have students take these tests at home. Students will take these tests in person, in school, with health and safety protocols in place. The well-being of our students, teachers, and communities is the highest priority. To support safe settings and to give students access to the tests, the testing window has been extended so fewer students are in a school at the same time.

    We understand there may be concerns about students in virtual settings coming to school to take a test. Please consider the value of having information on your student’s learning for this school year, particularly in planning for instruction next year.

    As we have all experienced in the past several months, by working together we can make the best decisions for each student. If you have any concerns or needs, please contact your student’s teacher for more information or a discussion on how we can best meet the needs of your student and your family.
