The camp runs from June 3-27, Monday- Thursday from 9:30-1:30. They will be doing awesome things like: flying drones, printing their own 3D designs, playing around with physics, programing robots and many other fun things! Space is limited so sign up fast. The cost is $60.00 for the first 64 students who register. Click here to register and for more information
What is more out of this world than a third grader? How about third graders at the planetarium learning all about out of this world stuff? The third grade field trip to Clark Planetarium was so much fun. They were treated to a movie in the dome theater, a presentation in front a massive earth shaped sphere and finally a yummy lunch at the park. Some of the students favorite exhibits were: the real life meteor, the tornado simulator, building and launching rockets into space, and an adventure onto the planet Mars, equipped with rovers and everything. It really was an out of this world field trip!
First grade was able to witness the life cycle of butterflies first hand! This is a perfect example of hands on learning. The kids not only learned about the butterflies life cycle, but they also had the opportunity to witness it up close within the classroom! After waiting patiently for the rainstorms to pass they were able to release the butterflies. It was difficult for the first graders, they wanted to keep them as pets, but ultimately they were able to see the little ladies fly free.
The third grade students worked day in and day out researching, creating, and discovering things about the six major biomes of the earth. To celebrate they showed off their hard work to their families at their parent biome night. Parents were able to read their research, listen and watch a persuasive video on why their biome is the best and finally get a miniature view into what the different biomes look like. The parents were impressed and the students were proud. We think that makes for a pretty successful night!
The kindergarten students in Mrs. Toelupe’s class have been busy making scientific observations about caterpillars. They learned all about what caterpillars look like and what they eventually become. Scroll through the pictures to take a look at these scientists and their awesome writing skills too.
Last week we got to celebrate our Queen Bee on principals day! Mrs. Walker is a serious rock star in the halls, the students here at Park View absolutely love her. She does so much for our school and we can’t thank her enough. We sure are lucky to have her be the queen of this busy hive!
