JA Biztown is an educational field trip where the fifth grade students learn about different jobs and activities that make up a community. The city has a Mayor, security officers, a hospital, radio station and many other businesses.  The students learn what it takes to keep a business running successfully.  They practice writing checks and can deposit or withdraw earned money into their bank accounts.  The students can then win prizes and purchase items with their earned money.  To see all pictures of JA Biztown, click here.:  JA Biztown

Parkwood has 4 Budgerigar (Parakeet) Chicks that were born the first week of November. Look how big they are already! Mrs. Knight said this is the first time that the male bird has gone into the box and actually fed the chicks.  Usually the male will bring the food to the mom at the box hole and she will feed the babies.

Like all good pumpkin patches at the end of October, this one was also a little bare after each kindergartner was able to visit the patch and pick a pumpkin to decorate.  The Kindergartners also enjoyed games and snacks.

Fourth grade enjoyed treats and crafts provided by the PTA, along with extra treats donated by families within a class.  The craft consisted of decorating a foam pumpkin with stick-on fall decorations, eyes, etc., letting Individual creativity surface.
