We love that smile!

Who is the first person you see when you enter Park View?  If you said Mrs. Kent, you are absolutely correct.  How well do you know our dear Mrs. Kent?   Did you know that her favorite color depends on the day?  She loves dogs and animals, and loves going to new and exotic locations!  Her favorite treat is chocolate.  Remember to thank Mrs. Kent for all the work she does to make Park View a wonderful place.

Straight lines and curved angles can create movement.
Put in some fun music and move.
Dancing is good for your body and helps you learn
Scarf dancing can fill the space with wiggles and squiggles and makes a painting of an empty space.
Just get up and dance.
Take something ordinary and make it extraordinary.

 Just dance! On March 16th The Reparatory Dance Company came to Park View. The company consists of Ursula Perry, Justin Bass, Efrin Corado, Dan Higgins, Jauren Curley, Tyler Orrcut, and Jacalyn Brown.  They are all pro dancers.They travel all over the U.S.A. entertaining children and teaching them the value of dance. The dancers are athletes. They stay in shape my warming up before dancing, eating healthy foods, and exercising every day!  They taught us how to talk without words, just with dancing; even a ball bouncing can communicate! Dancing keeps us fit and helps us see the world in a different way. They had the audiance participate with clapping in unison and with following patterns.They froze in interesting patterns. They taught us that we only get one body, so we need to take care of it.

Ursala  showed us a dance with moves like she was glad to be alive! Dan danced in ancient greek style! Jackie danced a dance of celebration and socialization. Effra did an ethnic dance that told a story of the past.  Laura danced a ballet of the royal courts.  Justin made up his own modern dance.  Tyler was full of surprises with a break dance and hip hop.  They invited all of us to make our ordinary moves into an extraordinary dance.

March 10th was our monthly all pro dads. We do it once a month, every month. You should come with your dad. It is highly recommended for anyone and their dads. This month, Mr. Gowans came in and showed us core science ideas. It was about energy and matter. We played with these things called air cannons; they’re super fun. As usual, we had donuts. They bring different flavors like chocolate and glaze. You should come to this exciting activity.

We had an awesome assembly! It was all about internet safety. The little kids watched a fun video about how to be safe using the internet.  Our special guest speaker was Josa Westover.  He told us about the bad kinds of things that people on the internet can do, and how these people can use information found on the internet against kids.  He taught us about a robot named Clicky.  We saw a video about Clicky; he caught the bad guys and put them in jail.  He told us to be careful and to tell our parents about anything bad we may see on the internet.

Mrs. Tuttle is leaving for the year.  She has been coming every day to teach the 4th grade students how to use the keyboard.  She was super sad to leave.  She thought that her students were so awesome.  It was fun for her to see the kid's eyes light up when they finally learned how to keyboard the right way.  She is proud to be able to teach them.  She has had the best time teaching at Park View!
