During the week of Oct. 5th-9th, students will be out in the car rider line collecting coins for the March of Dimes.  The High Country will be hosting a March for Babies event on Saturday, Oct. 10th at the Duck Pond Field beginning at 10am.  Parkway School would like to join in the effort of raising money to help more moms have full term pregnancies and healthy babies.  Please consider donating to this cause.  If your child is not a car rider and you would like to contriute, please send your donation in an envelope labeled "March of Dimes" to your child's teachers.

Strategic Plan Survey Link

The Watauga County School system invites you to participate in the development of its new
strategic plan. We want the this plan to be a useful working document and we know it will be stronger if it reflects broad community input. Whether you're a student, a parent or guardian of a student, an employer, or simply a Watauga resident with no direct connection to local schools, we are your public school system and welcome your comments.
An online survey is available through the
Watauga County Schools website. Click on the link for Strategic Plan Survey Superintendent Dr. Scott Elliott is also glad to come and speak about the plan and
gather input from civic and business organizations, church groups, others. Call 828-264-7190 to request a presentation.

Don't forget to register your Food Lion card so the school receives rewards. School Code:

Reminder: Students who eat lunch at the reduced rate, as well as students who are approved for free lunch, are able to eat breakfast at no cost.
