Congratulations to the Parkway Elementary Keyboarding Olympians for all the time they spent practicing their keyboarding skills! I am impressed with all of the students. Everyone was excited and involved! We were lucky to have the Winter Olympics motivate us. What began as a two week project is turning out to be until the end of the school year project. There are so many students keyboarding at home and letting me know every week how many lessons they have accomplished.
