Corey The Dribbler, former Globetrotter, joined the Parkside Penguins for an exciting assembly to show off his amazing skills! Not only did Corey show off his dribble skills with two basketball, he went as far as to dribble six basketballs at one time! Many of our Penguins got to participate, including our school principal, Mr. Weichman! Even more exciting was his message to our students about respect and responsibility, and what it looks like to be a successful, hard working student! Thank you, Corey!
Congratulations to the 5th grade students on their big win Thursday at the Normal West homecoming day parade. The theme for the parade was "Olympic opening ceremonies," Parkside's float was titled "Let the games begin." The 5th grade class would like to recognize Aaron Kaufman, Justin Morefield, Elisa Cupples, Kasey Allen and Angela Rachel for their many hours of hard work building and organizing float activities. The students will use the prize money to have a class celebration later in the school year.
