icon A note from Principal Schumacher

Welcome to Parkview Middle School.

We value your child and our relationship with you as parents (guardians). During the next two years at Parkview, our students will be entering their adolescence developmental period of their life. Parkview is a school that places our priorities on learning and growing academically, socially, and emotionally in a safe environment.  To this end, our staff implement high leverage instructional practices. They focus on developing professional and culturally responsive relationships with students ensuring your child can identify at least one adult advocate – if not more. They provide direct instruction and support for the social developmental milestones our students will navigate in a diverse school population. Each Parkview teacher has chosen to pursue his or her work with our students at Parkview. They all believe in our mission, vision, values, and goals. We all believe that success for all means “for all”. To this end, we know that our students bring a wide array of dispositions, talents, and interests. Thus, our academic teams of teachers work collaboratively to bring the appropriate level of challenge to ensure that each child learns and grows. We also have a very talented group of school counselors, health care professionals, social workers, and teachers who provide for specially designed instruction for kids who need more scaffolds to learn and for those who need accelerated learning. With all this, we need your help in the following ways:
  • Please help your child understand there is no substitute for your child’s regular and ongoing school attendance (unless ill).
  • Please explicitly emphasize your expectation that all children are valued – that your child treats all other children with dignity and respect.
  • Please communicate with your child’s teachers when you have questions and needs at the time those questions or needs emerge.
We are partners over these next two years.  Our investment in time and caring (building on all previous years of learning) sets up continued learning moving into 8th grade and beyond. We celebrate the unique developmental milestones through which your child will grow. All growth requires change.  For some, change can be confusing and challenging and exciting. We’re are here to support this journey for you and your child. Be well and stay engaged.
