 Dear Parents,

  Proef, Tect, Tester, ho’ike. All of these words mean the same thing, TEST!  It’s testing time! Here are some tips that can help your child do better on end of the year testing:

Go to bed early, have a good breakfast, study, be motivated to do your best, don’t be late, use the strategy called "two minute spill" (write down everything you need to know before you begin).  

Give your child a healthy diet, and make sure that your child attends school regularly.  We hope these tips help your child on the testing.

Third grade classes were able to come together for their very own Park View Spelling Bee. First, classes participated in a preliminary spelling bee in order to find the top three spellers in each class. On March 30, 2016 nine students showed their spelling skills in front of their parents, peers and second grade classes. It was a close competition and all the contestants worked hard to become the top speller. Ultimately, victors were; Jennica Chabot as our first place winner, Jack Willard taking our second place slot and Maddox Callister sliding in with a third place win. Great job third grade and congratulations to our winners!

Learning about our Community Up Close and Personal

The second grade students went on a field trip to the farm to learn how important farming is to our community.  They experienced the farm with their five senses; seeing the sights, smelling the smells, and petting the animals

The fourth grade went on a field trip to camp Floyd, it was were Johnson’s army met.  The students made candles and adobe bricks.  They learned about the pony express.   School was very different in the olden days. The boys had to sit on one side of the classroom and the girls on the other side.  On the way back to school, the students drove the teachers crazy on the bus because they were singing songs at the top of their lungs.   Sounds like a blast!



5th Grade Egg Drop

Submitted by joann.kirk on Mon, 04/04/2016 - 13:21

It's a bird; it's a plane.  No, it's an egg!  Fifth grade students were challenged to create a contraption to keep an egg from breaking after falling from the sky and crashing to the ground.  They selected teams and went right to work engineering their apparatus and securing their egg.  

Then they went to the south side of the school to drop their eggs.  Some made the harrowing decent in one piece.  Others cracked under the pressure.  


Park View Reaches their Goal During Penny Wars

Submitted by joann.kirk on Mon, 04/04/2016 - 12:55

The Penny Wars always gets students feeling competitive, but never more than this year.  Mrs. Stirland made the goal to reach $3000 for the week to help purchase a new Chromebook Lab for the school.  Little did she know that, not only would the goal be reached, but essentially smashed!  The school earned over $5000 in pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters.  This is unheard of, folks!  Mrs. Stirland promised if we reached our goal, she would be duct taped to the wall.  Mrs. Ore agreed to the same challenge.  Each student was given a piece of duct tape to add to the cocoon that was build around these ladies all afternoon.  

Thanks to everyone who donated to this great cause; the chromebooks will benefit students for years to come.  

Karaoke Anyone?

Submitted by joann.kirk on Mon, 04/04/2016 - 12:32

All the students who had good behavior at Park View throughout the term were able to attend the first annual Karaoke Activity.  There has never been as much excitement, noise and singing as at this activity. Students were able to select props to wear, step up on the stage and perform their favorite tunes.   Hearts were pumpin', kids were jumpin'; it was a fun time for everyone.  Enjoy the energy with these photos:
