Beginning a New Term

Advice from Lyndsee Slade, Ashton Andrew and Colby Rigby

Dear Parents,

      It’s the middle of the school year and kids are stressing out a lot! We thank you for trusting Park View teachers to teach your children, and that you are kind and trusting to all the teachers. We hope you like what your children are learning, and that you aren’t tired of your children being so enthusiastic to tell you what they learned!  If your child is stressed about their homework, just tell them “not to give up!” And if they are still stressed, just tell them to take a break and work on something else.

 Here are some of the student's favorite activities so far this year: Ellie Hine’s favorite thing this year was the fun run because she tied in the top laps with Kamrin.  Ashton Andrew liked journalism club and meeting new friends.  Amanda Johnson liked her new class and science class.  Mr. Broadbent's favorite thing in the term was all the festive games and activities.  He also liked the Christmas Charity projects we did in December. Mrs. Jasperson liked the Halloween activities the best.  She loves Halloween and loved seeing the kids dress up in their costumes.  Let's make the last half of the year just as much fun as the first.

It's a new year so we asked some of the students and teachers what New Year’s resolutions they have made.   Lizbeth Alvarado wants to get better at art.  Ellie Hine wants to read five series.  Evelyn Cervantes wants to be nice to her sister.   Mrs. Kirk said she wants to read 12 good books.  Mrs. Jasperson and Ms. Allred want to eat healthier.  Mr. Broadbent wants to get a full night sleep.  Mr. Sueldo wants to get a six pack.  These are some of Park View student's and faculty's New Year’s resolutions.

Students of the Month Show Charity

When we do any good to others, we do as much, or more, good to ourselves.  Benjamin Whichcote

December was the month to think about others, serve others and show kindness.  Park View provided many opportunities to serve through the teddy bear drive, the food drive, Santa letters and the blanket and coat drive. Everyone gave of their surplus to help others who may want.   These students were nominated by their classmates for their extra charitable hearts.

Welcoming our new 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Bird

Mrs. Prina, our favorite fifth grade teacher has left us. Her last day was just before Christmas break.  The students and faculty will miss her terribly.  She has been teaching for six years.  Some of her favorite treats are gingerbread and chocolate.  Her favorite games are Tella Striations, and Signs.  We wish her much happiness as she serves her little family.  We will always remember her smile and creative ideas.  She was an amazing teacher.                             We are so excited to welcome our new teacher Miss. Bird.  Miss. Bird has come to take the place of the beloved Mrs. Prina.  Miss. Bird loves Hershey’s chocolate with almonds, and loves working with kids.  She taught third grade, watches football, and plays mini golf.  Her favorite game is Mexican Train, and she loves Christmas. So that is Miss. Bird!
