It is an honor to serve as Principal of Parkway Middle School. The Parkway staff and I strive to provide your child with an academically challenging program and many opportunities for leadership and social responsibilities. Parent involvement is the key!  We want you to be part of the Parkway team. Volunteer, join our active PTSA. There is always room for you in different capacities. Please peruse our Parkway website for all sorts of information. Please know that my door is always open to you. Communication between home and school is vital. Together we make this a great school by putting children first in all we do!
