Parkside Announcements

  • Good Evening Parkside Families,

    First I would like to remind all students to bring their Chromebooks tomorrow.

    Last Tuesday was the end of the first trimester. Any make up work for trimester 1 is due December 1st. Report cards will be mailed out December 5th. If students want the opportunity to make up work, they must request it from their teachers.

    After School Cafe forms were sent home with some students. Students who received the forms must get them in as soon as possible. The tentative start date for this program is Tuesday, December 6th. This is subject to change. If you are interested in having your student attend the after school program, please contact us at 517-841-2300 to request a form. We can also answer any questions you may have.
