  • Local students get creative in film and song

    Two young aspiring songwriters and an aspiring filmmaker will have their work judged on the national level.

    The top entry in each category gets an $800 scholarship and a trip to the national PTA convention in July to receive the award.

  • Parmalee students volunteer at EChO food bank

    Sixteen helping hands put coffee and pepper into small containers — separate containers, obviously — on March 16 for clients of Evergreen Christian Outreach.

    Eight students from the Parmalee Elementary Leadership Council spent two hours at the food bank learning more about what it takes to feed those in need in Evergreen and serving their community.

    They divided large containers of both coffee and pepper into smaller portions. While one student marked a container, another dished the coffee or pepper into the containers without the two mingling.
