The Parkview Center School PTSA Direct Appeal is still underway! Donations for the 2013-2014 school year will be accepted until June 30, 2014. The giving form at the link below includes space to share your ideas for funding. Even if you choose not to give this year the PTSA is interested in this valuable feedback. Thank you to all who have already donated!!

Parkview's continuing excellence relies on the financial contributions of everyone in the Parkview community.

Your gift, in any amount, is much appreciated and helps support excellence at Parkview.

Together, we hope to raise more than $16,000.00 for Parkview Center School this school year. Your gift will help PTSA fund important programs like:

  • Teacher Grants for classroom materials and activities
  • Excellence Activities such as Future Problem Solvers and History Day
  • Coordinating Volunteers
  • Crisis Fund for Students in Need
  • Technology Updates
