Parkway School will be the site of a new pre-kindergarten classroom provided through a collaboration of the Lucy Brock Child Development Laboratory Program (LBCDLP) of Appalachian State University, the Children known as The Lucy Brock Collaborative Classroom at Parkway Elementary School, will operate with the same daily schedule, school calendar, and curriculum as the NC Pre-K classrooms at Cove Creek, Green Valley, Hardin Park and Valle Crucis schools. However, the teacher in the Parkway classroom will be employed by and paid through the Lucy Brock program.
