Parkside Middle School Closing Thoughts… Thanks for your attention, everyone. Over the coming weeks, let’s all start thinking how we can cross the line in more areas of our lives here at Parkside – in our classes… in our activities… in our sports… at home too maybe. Remember we’re all responsible for ourselves and our results… regardless of the challenges we face… regardless of the difficult people we’ll bump into from time to time. Let those lines you cross as you come into the school, step into your classrooms, step into the gym, help you remember to commit to making good things happen for yourselves and the people around you, whatever you may be working on.
