Congratulations to Noah Voglewede. He was selected for the 2018 North Carolina Honors Chorus through an audition process. Noah is only the third student from Parkwood to qualify for this opportunity in the school’s history, and this was his first time auditioning for the event. Great job Noah!
Second grade students at Waxhaw Elementary had a very special guest reader Friday morning. Parkwood Sophomore, Austin Burns is a true student leader in our community. He read aloud the book, The Invisible Boy. The book was about how small acts of kindness can help children feel included and allow them to flourish. He spoke to the class about “beginning with the end in mind” by setting goals and striving to achieve them! Austin attended Waxhaw Elementary and his mom is also Mrs. Burns, the elementary school’s speech pathologist. Waxhaw Elementary truly enjoyed having Austin read aloud his favorite book!
Mr. Gill grew up in Monroe, North Carolina and graduated from Sun Valley High School in 2013. After completing high school he went on to earn his bachelor's degree majoring in sports management with a minor in business administration. He is enjoying his first year teaching and says he finds it interesting to interact with students and learn more about the culture of this school. Mr. Gill found his interest in teaching after doing an internship for college where he was coaching football. He realized he enjoyed helping students and decided that teaching would give him the opportunity to continue coaching and it was also something he enjoyed. He is now the ISS facilitator and also works with distant learning and credit recovery. Along with coaching, Mr. Gill enjoys watching and playing all sports, weight lifting, and playing video games. His favorite color is Carolina blue and his dream destination is Hawaii.
