Last week Park View Elementary celebrated Red Ribbon Week. Each class decorated their door with clever ways to stay away from drugs.The students and teachers loved dressing up for the different themes each day that reminded them not to do drugs. On Monday they wore hats and said, "Put a cap on drugs." Tuesday was pajama day as students and teachers remembered to "Give drugs the snooze." On Wednesday, cowboys and cowgirls roamed the halls and said, "We-stren away from drugs." The next day students wore silly socks and slippers to "Give drugs the slip," and Friday was school spirit day--Park View Bees have learned to "Bee proud to say no."

On Thursday October 7th, students at Park View Elementary helped set a world record in reading. Students participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record by being just a few of over 2 million students to read Llama Llama, Red Pajama at school that day. The students were lucky enough to have one of the school board members, Christine Riley, come and read the story to them. The kids dressed in red to celebrate (some even wore red pajamas), and they loved reading with Mrs. Riley.

Park View’s principal Mrs. Reynolds commented, “It was a wonderful treat to have Mrs. Riley as a guest reader at our school. She obviously loves children and reading. I know the first grade children loved her infectious positivity, and who wouldn't enjoy a good Llama Llama book.”

It was a memorable day. The students and teachers at Park View were grateful to Mrs. Riley for helping inspire children to read.

The students at Park View were encouraged to get their daily exercise by walking or riding their bikes or scooters to school on Oct 4, 2011. It is an ever increasing temptation to play video games or watch TV before and after school and become sedentary. Some youngsters don’t get enough exercise to remain healthy. With these thoughts in mind, Park View Elementary organized a Walk to School Day. If the students chose to walk to school, they could earn extra recess. “Even if it is raining, I will walk to school. I want extra recess,” commented Treven Huff.  Sheila Moreno added, “I can get more exercise and more recess.”  Heath Turner walks his children to school every Wednesday if it’s good weather.  He likes the idea of parents walking with their children.   Abby Sorensen and Ruby Baird were on Patrol Duty. They watch the crosswalk and make sure students are safe every morning. They said it was busier than usual because so many students decided to walk.

PTA parents were there to hand out stickers to all who exercised, and supervised students during their extra recess time. Beverly Serynek said, “It’s a great idea. I think they should do it every day.” Dempsey Hardy summed up the experience this way, “It took the breath out of me.”

Thanks to everyone for making this a special day for the children.
