Kindergarten Students Celebrate Fall Day

Oct. 28th was Kindergarten Fall Day. They jumped in the leaves across the street at the park. They also goofed around on the play ground. It was great weather to play outside and get some fresh air.  They had a great time with each other and their teacher, Mrs. Thomas.  Some people wish they were in kindergarden again. This is the story of the Kindergarden Fall Day.

And on that farm there was a horse...
Honey bees are very important to our health and happiness.
Students learn from an expert.
Playing at the park.

 The second grade students went on a field trip to a farm to learn about some important community helpers.  They learned about the different uses of wool, care of animals and the usefulness of honey bees.  They also learned all about the different kinds of foods they need to grow big and strong.  They saw a dog do hand commands; they saw a goat, a horse, some rabbits, and a sheep.  They learned what kinds of foods farm animals give us. and how they help make our lives better.   After visiting the farm, they were able to go to the park to play and eat lunch.  It was an educational activity for our second graders.

Thanks to all the volunteers for a successful Fun Run...
and students will benefit from this fund raiser.
Thanks everyone!

If you were driving by Park View on Sept. 29th or Oct. 1st, chances are you saw kids outside walking or running. The kids were giving their all to earn money for the PTA.  Every few laps the kids could earn prizes such as silly bands, Frisbees, treats and water bottles. This motivated the kids to try their hardest.   Previously, they asked family and friends for donations for each lap they completed.  

We had some outstanding runners.  Even a few teachers joined in the fun.  These are the top boy or girl runners for each grade:

Kindergarten: Hadlee K. ran 4.8 miles; Caleb H. ran 4.8 miles

First grade: Davin W. ran 5.6 miles; Karlie A. ran 4.8 miles

Second grade: Zandon T., Stefan A. and  Jaxton H. ran 5.4 miles; Rebbeca H., Kendal E., Allie S., Allie W. and Jennica C. ran 4.4 miles

Third grade:  Braxton S. ran 6.6 miles;  Brinley K. ran 4.8 miles

 Fourth grade:  Caulyn W.  and Tallin K. ran 7 miles:  Lia W. ran 5.6 miles

Fifth grade:  Ethan D. ran 6.6 miles;  Kiri B. and  Sierra W. ran 5.4 miles

6th grade:  Kaleb F. ran 7.8 miles and Aubrey W. ran 6.6 miles.

The top money makers will be invited to a catered lunch with Mrs. Stirland as their host to honor their achievement.  Top Winners for each grade level are Tavin B., Taylor H., Jaxton H., William D., Tallin K., Ethan D., and Olivia A. 

Thank you to all the parents who came and helped us the day of the race, all the teachers and staff for their support and for the committee members which included Jenny Hinton, Liz Lowder, Hilary Adams, Melinda Baker, Are Johansen, Melissa Andrew, Shelly McClellen, Natalie Cunningham, and Rachel Fransen who was our mascot, Radical Racer.

The theme is “The World Would be a Better Place If… so for the reflection’s contest you can dance, paint a picture, take a photo, sculpt something, compose music or write something. We have creative kids at Park View so we know the kids can come up with some wonderful ideas because we’re awesome.  It is totally worth it to spend a little extra time and complete a reflections piece.   If you need ideas, here are a couple:  write a song, dance to a song that reminds us to make the world a better place, draw a picture of friends or take photos of things like peace, family, education, sharing, caring, love, or recycling.  Remember, the entries are due October 21.  Best of luck to everyone who enters.
