Back-to-School BBQ and Open House

Our Back to School Open House & BBQ is happening from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 29th!  We are looking forward to seeing you all again.  Please read the following information carefully:
Class Placement/Class Lists
Class placement will be available from 4:00 - 4:30.  Our staff will be seated at tables with class lists: please visit them to find out who your child’s teacher will be.  Please note that we can only provide you with information about your child (not your child’s friends).  If you are unable to come to the Open House/BBQ, please call our main office at 206-393-4150 Tuesday, September 3rd to find out your child’s teacher.  I’m sorry, but we can’t provide this information earlier than on Thursday, August 29th at 4:00.
Classrooms Open
Once you find out your child’s placement, please visit their classroom and meet their teacher.  All of our classrooms will be open from 4:00 - 4:30. If you are able, please bring your school supplies (this makes the first day of school much easier, especially if your child will ride the bus).  Need a list of school supplies?  Click here.  If you need help purchasing anything on this list, please email Kendra Treece, Parkwood Family Advocate, at
The BBQ itself will begin at 4:30 p.m. at Parkwood.  It’s a potluck, so please bring something to share.  Our PTA is providing hot dogs, and our WatchDOGS will work the grills to feed hungry Panthers. We will also have community partners onsite including the YMCA, Hopelink, and International Community Health Services (ICHS). Parkwood’s PTA, Natural Leaders, WatchDOGS, and Cafecitos groups will also be onsite to provide information, and the Shoreline School District transportation director will be there with route information to answer any questions you might have. It’s going to be a busy and fun event!
