The fifth grade students at Park View have been studying the lives of famous Americans to prepare for the annual Park View Wax Museum held on November 15, 2011. Each student was responsible to write a report, prepare a poster, and dress up as their chosen American. Under the direction of Miss Allred, Miss Shumway, and Miss Hutchinson, the students practiced patriotic songs such as “America Is,” “Proud to be an American,” ”This is My Country,” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag.” All their research and hard work culminated in an exciting evening in which the students shared their findings with their families. Miss Allred said, “All the students did an excellent job preparing and presenting their famous American to the school and to their parents.” Miss Hutchinson added, “It was an impressive event. The fifth graders knocked the socks off the audience as they recited their memorized speeches from famous American’s lives.” Miss Shumway commented, “The students sang the best I’ve ever heard.” It was an amazing experience for students and parents to be reminded of the people who have gone before that made this country such a wonderful place to live. Park View Bees are Proud to be American!
The Park View Student Council had the opportunity to attend a conference on leadership at BYU November 3. At the conference council members heard from outstanding motivational speakers, including John Bytheway. Students rotated through a series of sessions where they participated in team building activities, and learned about reaching goals, networking, and positive leadership. Students were also privileged to learn about false perceptions, responsibility and freedom, as magician Brad Barton represented these things visually through magic tricks. When the students were asked what stood out to them about the conference, many of them mentioned how impressed they were about how far a small act of kindness can actually go and what it might mean to someone in need. They felt motivated to use their leadership for good and have been implementing these lessons at their school.
Park View 'Students of the Month Assembly' was held on November 4. Fourth grade students, directed by Mr. Gowans, Mrs. Ewell and Mrs. Blackham reminded the students to be honest.
