Book Fair a HUGE success
There are several weeks that students and staff at Parkwood Middle School both look forward to every year: Winter Break, Spring Break, and Book Fair Week!
The Scholastic Book Fair came to Parkwood recently and was a huge success. Students and faculty browsed the book fair, looking for adventures, ideas, and new knowledge in the pages of the many books. In addition to a wide variety of literature, there were plenty of fun new school supplies available for purchase.
PWMS 7th grade AIG students remember the children who died during the Holocaust
As a part of the study of the book, Anne Frank, Diary of a Young Girl, the seventh grade AIG classes spent a day remembering the 1.5 million Jewish children who died as a result of the Holocaust. This day of remembrance began as the seventh grade traveled to the Jewish Community Center in Charlotte where they participated in a Butterfly Project workshop. The Butterfly Project was started in San Diego in 2006 as a way to remember the Jewish children who lost their lives because of Hitler’s rise to power. The goal of the project is to make sure that the horror of the Holocaust never happens again, by educating today’s children about discrimination and the progression that follows if it is left unchecked.Full Story
