Three students were nominated for the "Do the Right Thing" award by First Grade Teacher, Mr. Stoltz. Congratulations! Click here for more photos:Do The Right Thing.

Mr. Stoltz said that Ahmad moved here from Jordan in October and has worked so hard to learn so much. He did not speak any English when he came to Parkwood. You would not know that now . His English has developed at a great rate. He is also a reader now and has read and passed over 20 Accelerated Reading quizzes.

Jane came to America from Kenya in February of last year. Mr. Stoltz said that she struggled at first, but with persistence and determination she is now working above grade level across the curriculum.

Alivia helped a student who was new to our country from Jordan. She spent a lot of time helping him learn the language and to keep up in class. Mr. Stoltz  asked everyone to help and make him feel welcome. Alivia went above and beyond.
