A Message From the Principal
I have spent most of my career working at Parkview Elementary and I am very proud to be the principal of such an amazing school. I have worked alongside this staff in many capacities over the past 25 years, and together we have dedicated our days to children and learning.
At Parkview, we are committed to high levels of learning for every child, every day. Our district curriculum is comprehensive and standards-based. Students participate in individualized instruction through Reader’s and Writer’s Workshops, Word Study, and Mathematics, as well as ongoing and integrated learning through STEM, Music, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education and Health, Library Media, and Technology.
Our passionate teachers participate in ongoing professional development to continuously improve instruction. The intervention team and specialists work in collaboration with classroom teachers to connect learning and build real-world application. We value working together collectively to do the best possible work for children.
We have a wonderful community of families and children at Parkview. Our PTO works in partnership with the school to organize and provide many opportunities for involvement, including: family activities, student enrichment, volunteering, and special events. There is always something going on around Parkview!
I am the principal at Parkview because I care about kids. I believe in our school and the great work we do everyday to support children as they grow to become amazing leaders for our future.
Please contact me at anytime, I look forward to working in partnership!
Nicole Garcia, Principal
