As we approach the winter months, we realize that many families may be thinking about the holiday season.  Sometimes, these thoughts can be filled with stress or concern.  If you are in need of assistance during the holidays for gifts, food, or other items, please reach out to our School Counselor, Michelle Strohl at strohlm@parklandsd.org.  We have many great resources and wonderful people in our community that would love to help!  We, as a Kernsville community, strive to help alleviate stressors and other frustrations that our families are facing.
