Approximately 700 K-5 students attend Parsley Elementary School, located in Wilmington, North Carolina. The schoolâ€™s Website is designed to keep Parsley families up to date with current events, policies, and student resources. Links to teacher Websites contribute to the staffâ€™s commitment to improving communication between the school and home. Teacher resources are organized to facilitate lesson planning and to help teachers update their own technology skills.
How to use the site:
Updated frequently, the site spotlights current events, information about PTA, and student work. The Resources area consists of a vast collection of links for students, staff, parents, and community members. A novel approach encourages students to visit the site regularly. Each month the school sponsors a "Where's the Patriot?" contest, which challenges students to look for a patriot hidden somewhere on the site. In addition to familiarizing students with the many facets of the site, the contest helps them practice technology skills as they navigate the site and send Email to the Webmaster.
