  • Dear Families,
     
    The school year is pressing along and believe it or not, the holiday season is just around the corner. This particular time of the year is filled with shopping trips, gift-wrapping and decorating galore.  Parkwood Elementary has chosen to celebrate this holiday season in a unique way.  "The Giving Gift Card Tree" is a program our school will be hosting from December 1st through December 17th to help support families in our community.  A wrapped box will be sitting on the counter of our main office starting on December 1st.  We are asking the Parkwood community to donate specific kinds of gift cards for families that are in need of assistance during this time of the year.  Some suggestions are below.
     
       Gas Cards ~ from any gas station
       Grocery/Gift Cards ~ Kroger, Wal-Mart, Target, Meijer, Lofino's, Aldi
       Restaurant Cards ~ Bob Evans, Frisch's Big Boy, Panera, Papa John's, Chick-fil-A
     
    We are asking that all gift cards be delivered to the Parkwood main office no later than December 17th.  Children may drop off gift cards in the pre-wrapped box that will be sitting on the office counter. If you would rather drop off your gift cards personally, you are welcome to come either during arrival or dismissal any day.  The balance of each card should be visibly indicated.  If it is easier for you to send cash or a check to school, we will purchase the gift card for you.  Simply place the cash, or check made out to Parkwood PTO, in a sealed envelope and place it in the wrapped box.  Please indicate the dollar amount on the outside of the envelope.  We would love for the Parkwood community to experience the joy of giving this holiday season.  Please contact Mr. Fisher, School Counselor, if you have any further questions.
     
    Thank you so much for your help and have a Happy Holiday Season!

  • Beavercreek City Schools to renovate donated Boeing 727 jet into a STEM classroom
     
    On November 10, the Beavercreek City Schools Board of Education took the first step in creating an innovative STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) classroom when it voted to accept the gift of a Boeing 727 jet from Federal Express. Board of Education member Jo Ann Rigano received notice that the district would receive the donation on Thursday, October 30.

    According to Beavercreek School District Superintendent Bill McGlothlin, the jet will be renovated into the Beavercreek STEM Jet classroom for interested schools throughout region.

    The Boeing 727 Jet will land on November 20 at the Dayton International Airport. Dayton International will house the jet during the renovation period. Once renovations are complete, the jet will be moved to its permanent home on a Wright State University property.

    The Dayton International Airport, Clark State Community College and Wright State University are partnering with Beavercreek Schools to make the project a success.

    The project, which will be funded through sponsorships, grants, and private donations, will allow the partners to train students at the middle school, high school and post-secondary level in aviation and aerospace. The Beavercreek STEM Jet also targets the learning needs of elementary students throughout the region.
