Fourth Grade Economics Fair

Park View Elementary fourth graders show their entrepreneur skills at the annual Economics Fair. As part of their social studies curriculum, students learned about the economic development and procedures in Utah. Students then made products of their own, such as foam swords, hair clips, pencil toppers, and many other items which they then sold to their fellow students. The fourth graders earned over $900.00 which will go towards guest speakers and any necessary classroom supplies.

Park View Politicians

Fourth grade students at Park View Elementary were invited to the State Capitol on September 24, by Representative Patrick Painter. The three fourth grade classes have been learning how representative government has developed in Utah and how people who live in Utah have rights and responsibilities associated with representative government. Students were able to see our state legislature in action, go on an extensive tour of the capitol, and even sit in the desks on the floor of the House of Representatives.
