The Kindergarten students were extra lucky this Thanksgiving season because they got to indulge in a Thanksgiving feast at school! Students wore pilgrim hats and made necklaces from cereal. Parents were invited to feast with their children, they feasted on: turkey, pie, mashed potatoes, rolls, and vegetables. 

What a fun way to bring in the season!

Rewards Assembly

Each term the students of Park View are rewarded for their good behavior. This term everyone was entertained and wowed by a magician. We witnessed things like: money appearing out of thin air, ropes being cut and magically put together by the flick of a wrist, magical wands and much much more! 

Great job students of Park View for being spectatular and making our school great!

Students and faculty of Park View Elementary celebrated and honored the veterans of our country on Veterans Day, Friday, November 11. First, students showed their respect by wearing any kind of camouflage to school, it was fun to see everyone dressed in their army attire. At the end of the day an honorary assembly was held. The fifth grade students set the tone for the assembly by singing patriotic songs like, "Proud To Be An American."

Prior to the assembly Park View reached out to students, parents, and faculty asking for pictures and a write up of veterans they were related to. During the assembly those students were called up on stage in place of their relative and the student body was privledged to hear their stories. It was amazing to see and hear of the brave men and women who served or are currently serving our country.

 

To them we say THANK YOU! We feel incredibly lucky to live in this free country, all thanks to our veterans!

The Peak Award Given to Holly Kent

Attributions: 

If you have ever been to our school I'm sure you have talked with our wonderful secretary Holly Kent. She is the glue that keeps our school together! Not only do the students and faculty love her but so do all the parents. She is friendly, kind, generous, helpful, funny, hardworking and service oriented. In October Holly was nominated by Marcey Humpherys for The Peak Award and was selected as a winner! This is an award Nebo School District has put in place as a way to showcase the positive energy and kind employees within the district. The Peak Awards are nominated by patrons and recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education.

This is what Marcey had to say about the amazing Holly Kent. "Holly has continued to offer encouragement and assistance to students and parents for many years. She always has a smile on her face and a positive comment. I appreciate her ability to create a positive atmosphere at the elementary school. She makes students and parents feel valued.”

Congratulations Holly, Park View feels so lucky to have you as our secretary. We love you Mrs. Kent!

Recognize A Veteran

Attributions: 

 

Dear Parents,

For those willing, we would like to give our students the opportunity to share with the school something about a relative that has served, or is serving in the military.  We are going to use the information given about these relatives in our Veteran’s Day Assembly on Friday, November 11th.  The assembly will be at 2:15 in the gym.

Here’s what to do:

  • Write a paragraph (50 words or less) about the relative that has served, or is currently serving in the military. Please include:

  • The name of the student and the name of the person serving in the military.

  • How is the child related to this person?

  • The branch of the military this person served in.

  • Please include a brief description of what that person did, where they served and/or an interesting fact about the person’s time while serving in the military.

  • Email a picture of the relative – It can be a current picture, a picture from the time they served or both (No more than two pictures).  If you don’t have a way to send a digital picture, you can bring it to school and we will scan it for you.

  • All entries must be sent by the evening of Tuesday, November 8th.  

We appreciate your willingness to share, and we hope that it will be a wonderful experience for everyone.

Thanks for your support,

Mrs. Stirland

Park View School Principal
