  • Unfortunately, due to low enrollment and other logistical issues related to COVID-19, we have canceled this year's Parkway Strings Camp. Though we are saddened by not being able to give this experience to our students this summer, we look forward to offering the camp again next summer.

     
    We will be mailing out checks next week to refund anyone who has already paid by check or credit card.
     
    Thank you for supporting the strings program in Parkway, and feel free to contact your strings teacher or me if you have any questions or concerns.
     
    Thank You,
    Jeff Lackey, Peggy Craig, & Parkway Strings Staff

     

    The Parkway School District is pleased to announce that the Parkway String Camp will be offered for all strings students who are entering grades four through eight in August.  String Camp will take place July 27 through July 31, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 12:00 noon at Parkway NORTHEAST MIDDLE SCHOOL.  The camp fee is $65.00 per student for all fifteen hours of instruction (includes a camp T-shirt).

    All students must provide their own instruments and transportation (and be picked up by 12:15 p.m.)  Please note that we offer beginning viola, cello and bass classes for students who would like to switch before the school year starts.  Students enrolling as 5th graders (not beginning a new instrument) should be able to read notes on the ‘D’ and ‘A’ strings!

    All Bass players must provide their own instrument.  Check out your school bass (ask your teacher) before school is over.

    During String Camp, students will be able to review their reading skills, develop new techniques, and prepare for the coming school year.  There will be small and large group instruction, guest artists, and a performance on the final day of camp.  We encourage your child to bring a light snack (no peanut products) and drink each day!
