Kate Gray has been the Flipside Coordinator at Parkway for 4 years. She runs Flipside afterschool everyday at Parkway starting with greeting the students at snack to waving goodbye as the school busses leave. When Kate is not working at Parkway she is usually home cooking, riding bike, or reading a book. Kate’s favorite thing about Flipside is watching students get excited about learning new things!
