Parkway is a top community for music education

5/31/2022 -- Parkway is one of six districts in the state to be awarded a Best Communities award for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation. This is the fifth year Parkway has received this honor.

The award program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community leaders who have made music education part of a well-rounded education. Designations are made to districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education.

This year there are 738 school districts in the nation designated with the award, and Parkway was one of six in Missouri.

The NAMM Foundation celebrates and promotes the intrinsic value of music education.
