Meet Mrs. Crump!

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Tue, 10/20/2020 - 13:02

Many of you may already know Mrs. Crump because she has worked here at Park View for 3 years. 2 years as a computer technician and 1 year as our PE technician. Now we are happy to welcome her as our new...assistant secretary! Mrs Crump has many talents and gifts that she willingly shares with our office and school.

Mrs. Crump is married to Mr. Crump and together they have a darling little girl named Emma! 

Here are a few fun facts you should know about Mrs. Crump!

If you joined the circus, what would your circus act be? Even if I didn’t join the circus, I would want to learn trapeze! It looks so fun and crazy!

What animal would be the most terrifying if it could speak? I think any kind of bug. Imagine going outside by yourself and hearing thousands of little voices. They can see you, but you can’t always see them.

What was your favorite part of being a kid? I love how carefree it is being a kid. I miss playing outside all the time and having a lot of friends.

How much would someone have to pay you to eat a live spider? Ahh! I wouldn’t eat a live spider for a million dollars! EW!!...maybe a million and one? $$$

Well, there you go! You can see why we love Mrs. Crump!

Superhero Scramble!

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Wed, 10/14/2020 - 12:54

It was a very exciting Thursday at Parkview. Students banded together for our Super Hero Scramble. After getting pledges from parents and neighbors students ran around an obstacle course to raise money for the school. Our theme this year was "Stronger Together.' Working together classes made a goal deciding how many laps they would run as a class, and Thursday, led by Mrs. Walker the school principal, classes doubled and even tripled some of their goals.  We would like to thank all the loving parents that volunteered to make this event a success. You parents are amazing. Our school is really stronger together. Parents, Students, and Teachers make a great team! If you haven't turned in your pledge envelopes yet, you have until October 20 to get them in. The first 5 classes with all their envelopes turned in get a party! Make sure to scroll through the pictures.
