  • Students learn life saving tips from Turning Point

    Representatives from Turning Point visited Parkwood last week. Turning Point offers a myriad of services to the community. It exists to end domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse through safe shelter, advocacy, prevention, and social change. Students learned all about ways to spot domestic abuse and participated in scenarios to help sharpen their skills. Turning point also offers many volunteering opportunities for students.

  • Parkwood/Cuthbertson JROTC Wins Big at Drill Meet

    On Saturday, November 9th, Parkwood/Cuthbertson, Monroe/CATA, and Piedmont/Porter Ridge AFJROTC units competed in the annual Union County AFJROTC Drill Meet. Parkwood/Cuthbertson crushed its opponents by sweeping all five of five events and winning first place overall. Later that morning cadets participated in, and observed a special Veterans Day program planned by the Union County Veterans Services Office at the Charlotte Monroe Executive Airport. At the end, a top cadet from each of the six Union County JROTC units received the Union County Board of Commissioners’ Patriot Award. Our unit’s recipient this year was Avery Batts! The grand finale for the day was the Warbirds over Monroe Air Show, which lasted all afternoon. The air show concluded with a giant “wall of fire” under passing warbirds, which simulated bombs but was actually pyrotechnic devices safely rigged across the runway from spectators.  You could feel the heat from hundreds of yards away! The field trip lasted nine hours and was an amazing day of drill competition, honoring our veterans, and fun!

  • Beta Club visits 2nd grade students in Parkwood cluster

    Each year Beta Club takes time out of their schedules to build relationships with the younger students in our cluster through a reading program called Beta Buddies. Parkwood students choose picture books with global settings and travel to Waxhaw, Western Union and Prospect Elementary schools to read to 2nd grade students. After reading the books, the 2nd graders have an opportunity to decorate a book cover for their book and place it on a map near the country or continent where the story takes place. Before leaving each school, Parkwood students get to leave 2nd graders with a stuffed animal to be their "reading buddy" each day. This day is always a fun experience for all involved.

  • Students visit Lancaster Wastewater Treatment Plant

    Mr. Morgan's AP Environmental Science students took a trip to the Lancaster Wastewater Treatment Plant Friday, October 25, along with some of Ms. Mims' Clean Energy students. On average 1.5 to 2 million gallons of wastewater travel through the plant each day. First, primary treatment removes material that floats or settles out by gravity. Second, the sewage is treated to further remove solids and dissolved and suspended organic compounds. The solids (sludge) is pumped out to be disposed of in an environmentally beneficial manner. Finally, the water is disinfected to kill microorganisms. Some of our students even had the opportunity to put on gloves and handle the solids!
