Principal’s Message:

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year.  My name is Jacob Ruth and I am the new principal of Parkway Middle School. I am excited to get started as the new school leader, meet students and families, and guide Parkway in continuing to be the great school it has been for so many years! 

On behalf of all of us at Parkway Middle School, we want to welcome all returning families as well as our new families to Parkway. The coming year is going to include some challenges as we continue to face COVID-19 as a community and do everything we can to create the best school experience, despite the circumstances. We are currently crafting plans and procedures that address public health guidelines and that allow for effective learning to take place, regardless of school structures. Communication during this time is paramount and we will be sending out information on a regular basis during the summer to keep the community informed.

At Parkway, your child’s education is our priority.  A great education comes from strong school and parent relationships. We aim to be a full partner in your child’s education at Parkway. So, feel free to stop by the front office any time if you have any questions/concerns or email me at

Have a great day!

It is great to be a Parkway PATRIOT!

Jacob Ruth

*I will send a more detailed introduction/welcome video before school starts in August
