The Sixth Grade Annual Science Fair was held at Park View Elementary on February 3, 2012. The students used the scientific method to generate questions, form a hypothesis, experiment, and construct a theory. Outstanding projects were presented and explained as parents and student body viewed their projects. Scientist professors and students from UVU were invited to judge the student's entries. All of the students worked very hard and completed some amazing experiments. Six top entries were announced as winners of the fair: Through experimentation, Kiyan Loveless observed which brand of battery had the most longevity. Garrison Serynek wondered if the temperature makes a difference in how quickly Alka-Seltzer causes a chemical reaction. Kaden Flippen questioned which kinds of wood would burn the fastest. Megan Dixon demonstrated the position of a gymnast's body based on the gymnast's velocity. Micah Toelupe wondered if microwaves are useful or dangerous. Kenji Heimuli wondered, "Are you smarter than a blonde?" His conclusion - blondes are mighty smart. These entries will continue on to the Nebo School District's Fair which will take place on February 22 at Landmark High School.
The Region 10 PTA Reflections Awards Program was held on February 1, 2012 and Park View students, faculty and staff were thrilled to have two of their very own among the winners going on to the state level of competition. Violet Andrew won in the Visual Arts category with her display called "Flower World." Madison Heaton won with her Three Dimensional Art design called "Melting Together." Everyone at Park View Elementary extends a hearty congratulations and offers well wishes to Madison and Violet in the upcoming state competition.
Park View Student of the Month assembly was held on February 1st to honor those who have displayed outstanding academic and behavioral achievement. To begin the assembly, the first grade students taught the quality of respect. They shared their thoughts about respect for ourselves by doing your best and saying such things as, “I’m important,” and “I can do my best.” Respect for property includes keeping the school clean and not taking things that belong to others. Respect for others involves using kind words and being helpful. They sang, “The ABC’s of Respect” and reminded the student body that “respect starts with me.”
Then the students of the month were presented. These students certainly deserve respect:

Park View Celebrates100th Day of School
The first grade students at Park View Elementary celebrated the 100th day of school on January 31. They had fun learning about place value, practicing skip counting, having a read-a-thon, and counting snacks to make our "100 hash" (10 of each treat makes 100). We also made some cool glasses and badges. Miss Olsen, commented, “Who knew 100 days could go by so fast?! The school year is more than half over. I am amazed at the progress the kids have made in the last 100 days, especially in reading. It's so exciting to see them succeed!”
