A big "Thank You!" goes out to all those who helped make our book fair such a success!  Each teacher had the opportunity to participate in activities to earn books for their classroom and each student had an opportunity to earn a free book by doing various activities from a reading month calendar.  Happy reading everyone!

Three-time Emmy Award Winning Storyteller Bobby Norfolk visited Parkwood as part of January's Reading Month.  Mr. Norfolk was a very captivating storyteller that told Aesop Fables to each class. Below is a picture of Kindergartners and First Graders listening intently to a story about a spider named Anansi.
