Principal's Welcome

Dear Parsons Families and Community Members,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website!  It acts as a central location of information for families, students, staff, and community members. 

Educators at Parsons work as a team to ensure our students are challenged and supported academically, socially, and emotionally.  At the core of this work is our shared belief that the relationships we cultivate are of paramount importance.  These values are fundamental to our students’ success and preparation for the various challenges and experiences they will encounter throughout the course of their lives. 

We do this by:

  • Building upon students’ unique strengths while supporting their varying needs;
  • Committing to a fundamental belief that capacity can be developed through dedication, hard work, and appropriate feedback;
  • Creating authentic opportunities for students to engage in their learning;
  • Balancing the art and science of teaching through the use of recognized best instructional practices in the classroom.

Whether you are new to the Parsons Family, or have been a part of it for years, you are encouraged to attend your child’s programs, become an active member of the PTA, and partner with us in the high-quality learning that students engage in throughout the school year.  Stay current on the great work taking place at Parsons by visiting our website often and following me on Twitter @PARPrincipal.

I look forward to enjoying a wonderful year of bustling hallways and students hard at work in their classrooms! Let’s do amazing things together! 


Mark V. Woodard
