The Student Council deserves a big ‘thank you’ for serving the students of Park View with honor. They have participated in recycling used paper, teaching anti-bullying skills, making morning announcements, performing at assemblies, and assisting Mrs. Reynolds in a myriad of other ways. Mariah had a great time serving in the student council. She said, “It gave me a chance to learn how to be a leader,” Megan Hall added, “I learned about leadership and how to keep our school safe.” Ciarra Marshall said she enjoyed being the second eyes of Mrs. Reynolds. She felt she had power to help control the bullying that goes on in the school. Mrs. Reynolds especially appreciates all who served on her council this year, "It is a thrill for me to run student council! I feel connected with students which helps keep my teaching skills sharp, an important aspect to being an effective principal. It's my goal to help as many children possible feel as though they have a contribution and can be a leader. I feel committed to creating student leaders who will be prepared to meet the challenges of the upcoming years."
The students who served on the Executive Council were Briton Wilson, Megan Hall, Abbie Jensen and Aubrey Schmidt. The rest of the council included Brooklyn Snow, Summer Vaughn, Jordin Gonzalez, Katelyn Johnson, Sara Wiberg, Mollie Brown, Cassidy Radmall, Tyler, McKay Young, Racheal Campbell, Mariah Webber and Ciarra Marshall.

Teachers leaving us:
Park View is blessed with many talented and dedicated teachers. It is always a sad day when we loose a member of our family. These teachers will not be returning to our Beehive. The staff and students will miss them greatly, however, they extend their love and best wishes for each one: Mrs. Lundgren, Mrs. Ewell, Mrs. Blackham, Ms. Pittman, Mrs. Millet, Mrs. Hereth, Mr. Johnson and Mrs. Welton.
Lieutenant Wright visited Park View Elementary on May 9, 2012 to remind students of critical safety rules as they prepare for the busy, fun-filled summer months. He urged students to use cross walks when crossing the street, to wear helmets and seat belts, and to be guarded around strangers. He reminded them that they are more important than a ball that rolls into the street. He cautioned that if they see a gun or a shot needle, to not touch it, but to get an adult to handle the situation. Lieutenant Wright’s advice was well received. He wants all the children to be safe and enjoy the summer. Park View students want to thank Lieutenant Wright for his care and concern.
The third grade classes held their annual Spelling Bee on April 4th. Students practiced a list of hundreds of words for weeks to prepare for this event. One by one the students were eliminated as the words became more challenging. The last students standing were Alyssa Baker, who took 2nd place, Izzy Yama, who took 1st place and Aubrey Wengert, who became the grand champion. Aubrey won by spelling the word 'magnificent' correctly. When asked what her favorite part of the competition was, she stated, "I just liked being able to compete with all the third graders." Aubrey said she practiced the words with her mom and dad, Ginger and Aaron Wengert, and that helped her be successful. Congratulations to all who participated in the Spelling Bee.
The 2012 school year is coming to a close, however, Park View wanted to take one more opportunity to honor outstanding students of the month of May. The student body was treated with a presentation by the afternoon Kindergarten classes. They taught the importance of responsibility. They sang a song about all the things they have learned in Kindergarten to prepare them for first grade, for example, doing their homework, working hard in school, and doing their best. They know their ABCs and 123s. If they can make it in Kindergarten, they can make it anywhere. Then they showed a video that reminds us, "Come on, do what you're supposed to do. Responsibility is following through."
Finally, the students of the month were presented and honored for their efforts. Congratulations to the following students.
