Middle School at Parkside unveils "Innovation Kingdom"

The Boston Celtics​ and Southern New Hampshire University​ have done it again! For the third time since 2014, the two organizations have partnered to create a new space dedicated to enhanced learning through technology in a Manchester school. Like the labs at McLaughlin and Hillside middle schools, the classroom at Parkside was transformed with Celtics green paint and graphics on the walls, new furniture, 30 Chromebooks, and a wall-mounted TV monitor. The new "Innovation Kingdom" is adjacent to the school's media center to make collaboration of special projects easy.

Boston Celtics forward Jonas Jerebko and former player Leon Powe were the athlete VIPs. They took the time to speak to the Parkside students about future career goals and the dedication it takes to follow your dreams, even when they seem out of reach.
Manchester School District is grateful for community partners like SNHU and the Celtics, who understand that enhancing access to technology is critical to education in the 21st century.
