    Parkland School is proud to offer a wide variety of extracurricular athletic activities for our students.  These activities include a city league program for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, in addition to our Fox Valley Middle School Conference (FVC) sports. Three of the conference sports also compete at the IESA state level. The conference sports are offered on a pay-to-play basis.
