Inspire Wi-Fi – Get Connected!

7 12 2010

Welcome to 4343 at the Parkway’s Community-Wide Wireless Network!

In a continuing effort to improve our amenities and resources to the community, we have partnered with Inspire Wi-Fi to provide a Community-Wide wireless internet network for our residents and guests. In your apartment or in any common areas, your high-speed internet connection will be available.

To make connecting to the internet as easy as possible, no passwords or user ID’s are required. You are required to access the internet through your browser each time. You will not be able to access various tools, such as Outlook, without going through the browser first, which ensures our authentication/security process.

The Wi-Fi solution does not support devices like Xbox Live, Vonage, Skype, movie downloads, streaming online classes or other high bandwidth applications. If you require more bandwidth, we recommend a dedicated wired connection and use the Wi-Fi solution provided by your community for emailing and other basic internet programs.

The wireless network runs on all current versions of Windows and Mac. If you have a desktop PC or a laptop without an integrated wireless card, you can purchase a wireless card at retailers such as Best Buy or Office Depot. All you need is a 802.11 capable device.

For 24×7 Tech Support, call 1-877-APT-WIFI, Option 2 or email our support team @ support@inspirewifi.com.

Refuge House Toy Drive 2010

29 10 2010

4343 at the Parkway is teaming up with Refuge house this year in their local toy drive for the children that are in their foster care. Refuge house is a non-profit foster care and adoption agency located in Dallas, TX. Refuge house opened its doors in 2004 when they placed their first 6 children and has grown to serve over 1,000 children through out each year. Refuge house continues to grow each year and is currently serving over 500 foster children.

Participating in the toy drive is easy! There are two ways that you can participate this year:

  1. Choose a toy from one of the wish lists located in the 4343 at the Parkway clubhouse. We have wish lists ranging from $3.99 per toy to $49.99 and up. Bring in the new and unwrapped toy(s) that you would like to donate to the 4343 clubhouse drop box. If you can not stop by to pick up the wish list the 4343 at the Parkway team can email you a copy.

 

  1. Sponsor a Toy: We have numerous toys on the children’s wish list that range anywhere from $55.99 to $199 in value. By sponsoring a toy for a child you will be able to collect donations from family, friends, co-workers, etc. to help purchase this toy. You can choose the toy you wish to sponsor from our sponsored toy list which can be provided by the 4343 at the Parkway team members. We will give you all the marketing material, toy information, and sign up sheet in order to collect the donations for the toy. We ask that you collect the money, purchase the sponsored toy, and bring it to the 4343 clubhouse to be stored until the end of the toy drive. 4343 at the Parkway will not accept cash payment to purchase the toy. If you are unable to reach your goal that is ok! You can bring us the sign up sheet and put the money collected into a Toys R Us gift card to be given to the Refuge House team.

 

We really hope that this year’s toy drive will be the best ever! The Refuge house is a local foster care program which is why we wanted to sponsor them this year and help out local children in need. The toy drive will run from November 1st, 2010 through December 13th, 2010. We ask that all donated toys be turned into the 4343 at the Parkway donation box by Sunday, December 12th, 2010.

If you have any questions at all about how to participate in this year’s toy drive please give our team a call at 972-818-9090.

Diary of a Wimpy kid – Movie reviews by Kate

Reel reviews for real people

Rating: PG for some rude humor and language.

Genre: Children/family

Plot: Meet the kid who made “wimpy” cool, in a family comedy motion picture based on the best-selling illustrated novel Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, the first in a series that has thus far sold… Meet the kid who made “wimpy” cool, in a family comedy motion picture based on the best-selling illustrated novel Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, the first in a series that has thus far sold 28 million books. DIARY OF A WIMPY KID chronicles the adventures of wisecracking pre-teen Greg Heffley, who must somehow survive the scariest time of anyone’s life….middle school.

To Greg Heffley, middle school is the dumbest idea ever invented. It’s a place rigged with hundreds of social landmines, not the least of which are morons, wedgies, swirlies, bullies, lunchtime banishment to the cafeteria floor – and a festering piece of cheese with nuclear cooties. To survive the never-ending ordeal and attain the recognition and status he feels he so richly deserves, Greg devises an endless series of can’t-miss schemes, all of which, of course, go awry. And he’s getting it all down on paper, via a diary – “it’s NOT a diary, it’s a journal!” Greg insists, preferring the less-sissyfied designation – filled with his opinions, thoughts, tales of family trials and tribulations, and (would-be) schoolyard triumphs. “One day when I’m famous,” writes Greg, “I’ll have better things to do than answer peoples’ stupid questions all day.” So was born the Wimpy Kid’s diary. –© Fox

Starring: Zachary Gordon, Steve Zahn, Devon Bostick, Chloe Grace Moretz

Director: Thor Freudenthal

Running time: 1:30
