Wednesday, May 5th our staff will be on site from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. to distribute supplies to our remote learning families. Please come to our bus drop off in the back of the school off of 155th. Lots of Parkwood staff - including many classroom teachers! - will be there to hand out learning materials, see you in person, wave, and say hello. We are asking all families to come and we hope that you can make it!
Our shirts and sweatshirts are bright red with a white Parkwood Panther logo on the front and our school’s core values of Community, Collaboration, Academic Excellence and Respect for Human Differences on the back. Shirts are $8.00 and sweatshirts are $16.00 (YM ssweatshirts are out of stock); you can still buy them at our main entrance, just push the front button and office staff will help you. You can pay by cash or check (sorry, no credit cards). Want a shirt but need financial assistance? Please email our Family Advocate at email@example.com for help.
The Shoreline PTA Council recently held their annual Reflections Art Contest virtually with the theme of “I matter because…” You can find a video slideshow of the incredible artwork and list of finalists and honorable mention winners on their Reflections webpage.

About Our School
Our Mission: Through our core values of Academic Excellence, Community, Collaboration and Respect for Human Differences, Parkwood Elementary School inspires and prepares students to reach their highest potential and live empowered, successful, and compassionate lives. *Our mission, vision and values were collaboratively developed by Parkwood staff and stakeholders in 2015.
About Parkwood: Parkwood Elementary, a Title 1 school, is one of the most ethnically, economically, culturally, and linguistically diverse schools in Shoreline. Approximately 40% of Parkwoods 450 students qualify for free or reduced lunch, 30% of our students speak a language other than English at home, and 16% qualify for special education services. While some may view these demographics as difficulties, Parkwood enthusiastically celebrates our diversity. Our communities are committed to student success and it shows: Parkwood uniformly exceeds state performance levels in all standardized tests and regularly exceeds scores earned by other Shoreline elementary schools. We have won Washington State Academic Achievement Awards in 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018. *The program was suspended state-wide in 2017 and reintroduced in 2018.
The Parkwood community is collaborative, holistic and relentless about student growth. We truly believe that our work will change our students’ lifelong trajectory, enabling them to overcome financial and educational barriers. We approach instruction and intervention systematically, rejoice in our accomplishments and celebrate our cultures. Through our work and play, we care for children’s academic, social and emotional development.
