Under the direction of Mr. Broadbent, Mrs. Prina and Mr. Sueldo, the fifth grade students presented an informative Wax Museum of famous Americans who made a difference in our world today. They have been preparing speeches and posters, writing essays and practicing patriotic songs.  They presented their speeches to the students during the school day on November 20, then informed their parent and family that evening with the knowledge they have gained.  Quin Christensen shared, "I researched to learn about Henry Ford.  I found some interesting things."  Marcos Alvarado shared, "I feel it's a good education.  We should never stop learning like Milton Hershey."  Teagan Mabey said, "This experience helped me learn about famous people.  I researched Molly Brown."  Kameryn Meek thought it was a fun experience.  It taught me about people and how they helped us today.  Riley Cook liked seeing everyone's displays.  Evelyn Cervantes said, It was scary at first doing my presentation, but now it's awesome."  Lexi's Crawford's favorite part was researching about Jacquline Kennedy.  Allie Young's favorite part was putting her speech together.  Crystal Allen researched her own ancestor, Ann Rowley.  She was a pioneer in the Willie Handcart Company.  Brianna Franklin summed it all up with these words, "I learned about famous people, how they lived and made a difference in America."  Thanks to the 5th grade students for their preparation and sharing their knowledge with the community.

What a quality way to learn about sounds!  All the Kindergarten students learned that Q and U always work together as a team.  Mrs. Stirland was the Justice of the Peace who quickly accepted the job to put them together at the ceremony.  Mrs. Rife’s parents were quite qualified to represent Q and U.  In the afternoon class the teachers had two students in their class be Miss Q and Mr. U!!!  One was dressed as a quarterback, the other was a queen. You could almost see the quarterback quake and the queen quiver as they walked down the aisle.  As part of the ceremony, the boys quickly asked the girls to dance a quirky dance.  They were so cute!!!! The kindergarten students were heard quoting quips about how beautiful the wedding seemed.  They had a quality mini wedding cake as well.  The fun just would not quit.  There was no quarreling about this being an enjoyable event. We hope the kindergarten students will quickly remember that the letters Q and U will always be together, forever.  No qualms about it.

The second grade students went on a field trip to the Scera Shell Theater and watched the play" James and the Giant Peach".   All of the second graders got popcorn, a package of airheads, and a drink.  Mrs. Adams class read the book first and then compared it to the play.  They got to sit on the balcony.  After the play all the actors sat in chairs and the kids got to ask them questions.  Most of the students asked about how all the lights worked.  The second graders had a fun time.

Mrs. Stirland welcomes everyone into her heart.


“ Hi my name is Shanna Stirland and I was born March 25 in Salt Lake City. I became a principal  because I love children.  I like being the principal because it gives me a chance to help kids. After school I like to play with my grandson, jog, ride bikes, and read. When I was young I loved to ride ponies, swim, and practice with the drill team.  I also love playing all kinds of sports.  I went to school at South Bountiful Elementary, South Davis Junior High, Woods Cross High, and BYU.  I’ve worked at Park view Elementary as the Principal, Hill Field Elementary teaching 6th grade, Altamont Elementary, and Spanish Oaks Elementary. If I could choose which grade I would teach, it would be 5th grade.

Mrs. Stirland is well respected by the students, faculty and parents.  She works hard to make our school a positive place to be.  The students love coming to school to see her beautiful smile welcoming them.  Thanks for sharing your life with us, Mrs. Stirland.

Mrs. Prina shows off her personality, plus


“Hi, I grew up in Glendale Arizona, and I became a teacher.  I wanted to be a teacher because when I was at BYU Idaho I volunteered for a kid's Halloween Party.  I had so much fun, I knew I would love to teach kids and help them gain knowledge.  I like teaching at Park View because all the teachers and students are kind!!  Right now I live in Orem with my husband and baby.  I have been teaching for six years.  In all my teaching I have only taught fifth graders.  

Mrs. Prina is very well respected among the faculty and students at Park View.  She works hard to help each student excel.  She always has a smile and a kind word to give.  She is looking forward to the Wax Museum coming up next week.  Watch for pictures of this amazing event.

Clark Planetarium Scientists Come to Park View

Static Electricity felt by many
Air pressure demonstrated
The power of fire

On Nov. 2, 2015 Scientists came from the Clark Planetarium to instruct 4th, 5th and 6th graders about the art of science.  

 During the Clark Planetarium Assembly, a scientist demonstrated the shock wave.  Students lined up and held hands.  The first person touched a big round ball that had static electricity flowing through it.  Each person felt a shock from the electricity clear down the line.  Michael Lopez said, “It felt like lightening.”

I learned about air pressure.  A leaf blower made a big ball float because there was more air pressure under the ball.

I learned that if you mix flame with certain chemicals, the flame will explode. 

I watched how a forest fire explodes.  There was a big tub with fire in it.  As it spun around, and the air rotated, the fire got bigger.

The assembly was very interesting because all the experiments that the scientist showed us.
