Dear Parkway Families,
The start of a school year creates much excitement, hope and optimism. Parkway welcomes those of you returning as well as new families to our wonderful school district. Like our families, we also welcome new educators and staff members to our family. I hear numerous stories of families and educators who seek out Parkway as their new home and place to work and enhance their careers. I couldn't agree more. As a resident and superintendent, Parkway and our communities offer so much, particularly for our children. There is a quality of life in our region that is difficult to find anywhere else.
We take seriously our Parkway mission to ensure all students are capable, curious, caring and confident learners who understand and respond to the challenges of an ever-changing world. While we continue to have great success in ensuring the end result of capable students, great pride is taken from the fact that our students are increasingly curious in their learning and study. We also observe wonderful evidence of student confidence played out in classrooms, on athletic fields, throughout music and fine arts study and in other aspects of school and community life. Finally, we are so pleased to hear stories of students caring about one another, those in need, their community, the environment and the larger world.
Parkway’s commitment to its mission and vision, plus its strong tradition of success and our over 75,000 alumni make Parkway stand out among its peers. Please join me in continuing our work and in ensuring Parkway remains a premier public school system.
My best wishes to all students, families and our talented and dedicated employees of Parkway as we begin a new school year.
Dr. Keith Marty
