It was loud! It was exciting! It was Competative! It paid off! Students have been reading all year, keeping track of their total minutes and turning in calendars for a chance to participate in "It Pays to Read." Students with the most minutes read in their class were able to shoot baskets for dollars. Parent volunteers were available to help them pick the best team to help them earn the most bucks. Expert basketball players from Payson High School were on hand to help the students make the most money possible.
The second grade students, under the direction of their teachers, Mrs. Palacios, Mrs. Barney, Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Rife, have been working hard to learn the math facts. As a reward for passing off the facts, students were presented with a breakfast fit for a king, pancakes with syrup, banana, and juice. Mothers of the students came to help prepare the feast. Andre Mitchell said, "I feel great because I know my math facts." Great job, 2nd graders for all your hard work; and thanks for all those who helped make this a rewarding time for the students.
Park View Students received the spirit of Christmas as they donated food items for families in the area who may need food supplies to carry them through the winter. Almost 2000 items were donated. A contest was held to see which class could bring in the most food. Mrs. Prina's class members displayed the most giving spirit with 582 food items donated. Thanks to all who participated in this worthy activity. Everyone should be blessed with a Merry Christmas.
Under the direction of Miss Diana, the choir at Park View performed the first annual Christmas Concert. Their voices sounded like angels and they looked professional with their matching shirts, "Life is a song; Sing it."
They performed A Caroling, A Caroling, Winter Sleigh Ride, You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch, Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella, Gesu Bambino, and an Italian carol, Funiculi, Funicula. Their final song was Shine Your Way.
The Choir practices every Wednesday after school. Miss Diana wants to remind all students that if they want to join, she will be accepting applications in January.
Great job, Choir! We are proud of you.

The 5th Grade Wax Museum was a huge success. Under the direction of Mr. Broadbent and Mrs. Prina, the students chose famous people from past American History, researched their lives, wrote about their achievements and created posters. They became their characters on December 4th as they told their fellow students what made them famous.
Enjoy the pictures of our very own famous Park View friends.
