Parkside is now offering Cross Country for Fall 2022 and Track & Field in Spring 2023!
For up-to-date sports schedules and results, check the Art David Athletic League website.
What is cross country?
Cross country is a competitive team sport offered in the fall for our middle school students. Five or more runners make up a team. Teams from various middle schools all race together at the same time. The top five finishers from each team are scored and their finishing places are added up to generate the team score. The lowest scoring team wins the race. A cross country course can consist of grassy fields, wooded paths and hills.
When is practice?
Practice will be held after school each week at Parkside. Please reach out to Coach Morrison for more details on days and times.
When and where are the meets?
Arts David Athletic League will have several meets during the fall season throughout the peninsula. Please check out the ADAL website for more details. Coach Morrison will also provide all athletes and their families details as meets approach. Carpooling is strongly encouraged for athletes and their families.

Please note your donation is not required for participation in After-School Athletics. However, without adequate donations, our Athletics program is in serious jeopardy.

Spring 2023 Parkside After School LEGO Program (4th-7th Grade)
Parkside parents Eric Park, Dan Denney, and Julie Park will be running an afterschool LEGO program in the spring using LEGO Education sets provided by the district and SMFC Education Foundation.
Students will work in groups to find solutions to engineering challenges while learning about STEM concepts and exercising their critical thinking skills. They’ll also be introduced to foundational computer science concepts, using the Scratch programming language to control motors and read information from sensors.
The program is free (there is no charge for your child to participate) and will run in the LGI on Thursdays from 3:00PM to 4:15PM, 1/26 to 5/25. There will be no sessions on minimum days, parent-teacher conference days, and during spring break. Enrollment is capped at 24 students with priority given to older students (7th, 6th, then 5th, etc.).
NOTE: This is a school-supported but parent-led enrichment opportunity.
Please complete this form by Thursday, December 15th to indicate interest. Contact Eric Park if you have any questions or are interested in helping out.
