Welcome to Parkside Elementary School!

Dear Parkside Families:

I am Susan Mueller, the principal at Parkside Elementary. This is my eighth year as an administrator at Parkside, and I am proud to be a Laker and a Parkside Panda. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, as well as reading. Most of all, I am proud to be the principal of Parkside Elementary. It warms my heart each and every day to see the smiling faces of our students who are eager to learn.

It is my belief that all children deserve a quality education and have access to all learning opportunities. At Parkside, we have high expectations within the classroom and around our school. We are a community of learners that promote academic excellence in a safe and welcoming environment for our students and families.

Parkside houses the only Latchkey program at Lakeland School Corporation. Our Latchkey program is open from 6:00 AM and closes at 5:30 PM each school day during the school year. Applications are available through our website and the school office. Parkside also offers numerous clubs throughout the year to keep our students involved and engaged. We have Student Ambassadors, iPandas (Computer Club), Robotics Club, and Math Club.

The Parkside Post helps keep parents and students informed about all the great things happening at Parkside Elementary School. The Parkside Post contains important dates about activities and events, and other important school and district information. It is sent home with the youngest student that you have at Parkside. We also publish it on our Facebook page. Our website will have information for our families also, please check it out.

Parents that would like to become more involved with Parkside, please consider joining our amazing PTO. They help us with Mornings with Mom and Donuts for Dad. Our PTO also plans and organizes our Daddy-Daughter Dance, Mother-Son Cruise-In, Bingo Family Night, and Fall Festival. These were very popular events last year: in the 2017-2018 school year, the PTO donated the new playground equipment for our 3 – 5 playground. I encourage you to come to our PTO meetings. Information about the meetings will be published in our Parkside Post.

The students, staff, and faculty at Parkside form a strong partnership to ensure that all Parkside students receive an exceptional education. I encourage you to participate in school activities and special occasions as well as volunteer in your child’s classroom as your schedule allows. I look forward to continuing to work with you this school year and for many school years to come. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 260.499.2430, or via email: smueller@lakelandlakers.net.

With kind regards,

Susan Mueller
