Thanksgiving is every day at Parkway Middle School
Thanksgiving comes every day at Parkway Middle School of the Arts. We captivate the feeling by helping our families in need to celebrate and have a Happy Thanksgiving with their families. We would like to thank the various sponsors who made our Thanksgiving dinner and talent show a success: Mr. Robert Crum and the Housing Hub, Mr. Patrick Buchanan and Sigma Institution of Health Career, Mrs. Ruth Lynch Cynanotary Florida Notary & Business Center, Blended Family Foods, Broward Meats of Lauderdale Lakes, Larkin Community Behavioral Health Hospital, Family & Friends Catering LLC, Mama’s Curry Closet & Financial Partner Group, Ms. Catherine Malcolm of Jerk Machine, Mr. Ashley Smart, BTU Representative and Teacher at Parkway Middle School, Parkway Middle’s School Men of Honor Club, Ms. Marci Bennett Barnes, Guidance Director at Parkway Middle School, Ms. Renee Walden-Ramdas Literacy Coach at Parkway Middle School, Parkway’s Performing Arts Department, Ms. Jill Strada and 99 JAMZ Radio Station, Mr. Carlos Carvajal, Community Liaison of Parkway Middle School, Plantation General Hospital’s HR Department and Broward Estates and St. Georges Homeowner’s Association. Without the contributions of our supporters our event would not have been such a resounding success.
We would also like to mention the continuing support of the Parkway Students of Tomorrow Mentorship Program, which was founded by Veronne McMain the school’s Social WorkEr. This mentorship program provides support for the students at Parkway. Currently our mentorship program services 76 students who each have individual mentors. Another hearty note of gratitude goes out to the City of Lauderhill and their Police Department for providing social and emotional support. They also provide guidance to our students through their involvement as mentors in our mentorship program. We would like to express special thanks and gratitude to Chief Constance Stanley, Lauderhill Police Department, for her undying support of our school, Tom Ranies Lodge 484 and mentorship program as well as Principal Bradford G. Mattair, and the staff at Parkway Middle School of the Arts.
