Parsons Elementary was built in 1958. In 1996, another wing of classrooms and a gym were added, and the office, lounge and workroom were completely remodeled.

The library was scheduled for renovation during 2001.

Each classroom has at least one Internet-ready Macintosh computer, and most also have a networked Dell computer.

The school plans to have each classroom equipped with a Dell computer by the end of the 2001 school year.

A computer lab at Parsons has 27 computers, all networked, one Macintosh, a NetTV, as well as a laser printer.

The Parent Volunteers program is very active, as is the parent teacher association, according to school administrators.

The parent organizations conduct two fund-raising campaigns each year, oversee the school photographs for the yearbook and organize volunteers for special events. The parent teacher association has provided funds to purchase computers, books for the library, Accelerated Reader software and for renovations to the library.

In addition to several student performances at parent teacher association programs, the school hosts a Spring Fling every two years. Also, each year, the parent teacher association coordinates Muffins with Moms and Doughnuts with Dads, programs that bring parents, students and teachers together in an informal atmosphere.

The school art specialist holds an art show each spring with more than 1,500 pieces of student artwork displayed.

Parsons' programs include a Middle Childhood class -- a class for profoundly handicapped students -- and a Social Adjustment class.

The music program includes an orchestra class and an Honor Choir for sixth-grade students. The choir performs at several civic events during each year.
