Oh that Sweet Chocolate!

Mrs. Stirland, aka Willy Wonka, reminds students to participate in this worthy fundraiser.
Some of our students have found the golden ticket.

Chocolate comes in many forms, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, truffles, chocolate icecream, fudge; we could go on and on.  This week it is in the form of money for Park View to buy new Chormebooks.  One candy bar is $1.00.  Ask your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, or cousin about buying some chocolate, then enjoy its sweetness now, and later as the students use the chromebooks.  Envelopes with money and names are due on Friday, May 1st.

Our cute Kindergarten students had an Spring Party. It was so cute to see them going around picking up colorful eggs. We were so lucky to see both classes. We saw Ms. Jones’s class, and they had the cutest thing.  It was a tube that you put the eggs in and the eggs would slide down the tube into a bucket.  Mrs. Thomas’s class had just as much fun opening their shining eggs. We were so lucky to go and see the amazing adorable kindergarteners at Easter.

Mrs. Toulupes 1st grade class also had a Spring Party! They played games including Don’t Eat Peep, and created some Spring arts and crafts.                                                    

 Enjoy these pictures of the fun.
