|"Adopt-a-Soldier" is one project utilized by Parkway teachers to engage their students in service to their community and learning in the classroom.|
The Parkway School District K – 12 social studies program provides yearly instruction in the social studies disciplines of history, geography, economics, and government/civics. Cultural traditions, multi-cultural perspectives, diversity and equity are imbedded throughout the K – 12 program. Students will participate in service learning projects related to the curriculum at each grade level encouraging active participants in civic life rather than passive bystanders. All students will have the opportunity to participate in Kids Voting, Constitution Day activities and honoring veterans on Veterans’ Day as part of Parkway’s commitment to educating students for their role as citizen. In addition to the core social studies disciplines (history, geography, economics and government/civics) the Parkway Social Studies curriculum offers students the opportunity to study sociology, psychology and other topics in social studies at the high school level.
Social studies, K-12, in Parkway is designed to support three major purposes:
- To develop citizenship, knowledge, abilities, and commitment.
- To use rational inquiry to acquire knowledge drawn from history, the social sciences and related fields.
- To remember, understand, and use social studies knowledge and processes to benefit self, others, and the republic.
