Home & School

About Us

The Home and School committee at Parkview Junior Academy serves to strengthen the relationship between our school and its families. We do this through planning various social events and having fun with fundraising. Because of COVID, our social gatherings have become rather limited to keep our school in-person and COVID-free.

 

Even though we are limited with inviting outside guests, Home and School looks for opportunities to enrich the experience of our students while at school. See some of what has been going on recently at our school.

 

Welcome Back Bonfire & Worship

At the beginning of the school year we welcomed back our families with a bonfire and worship in the school's back yard. We roasted marshmallows, sang fun campfire songs and worshipped with Pastor Jochy Jamel. We lit sparklers to welcome the sunset and Sabbath hours before heading home.

Color Dash 2021/Spring Work Bee

The Color Dash was organized differently this year as an obstacle course on the school grounds. There were two courses for younger and older students. Of course, there was still A LOT of color dust being thrown around. After the festivities, we enjoyed an outdoor lunch and joined efforts to get some projects done around the school.

 

 

 

 

End of the Year Party 2021

Home and School hosted an end of the year Class Clash in which the classrooms competed against each other during various games. Lunch and ice cream sundaes were provided before we all said good-bye for the summer.
