Valentine's Day Activities Encourage Friendship

Zaylee Hiatt, Kate Nielson

 Friendship and sharing was witnessed at Park View on Valentine's Day.  Students created Valentine Boxes to receive cards and made Valentines to share with their friends.  It was a day to remember.  Here are some of the activities that occured during the day:  Mrs. Thomas’s kindergarten class exchanged candy.   They had the joy of decorating cookies and cupcakes.   They learned about friendship by practicing how to be kind.  They also learned about Charlotte's and Wilber's  friendship from the book Charlotte's Web and how boys and girls can be friends.

Mrs. Marsh’s class made Valentine's day Jello Monsters. They also had a party, played Don’t Eat Cupid, and made valentine graphs.  

The fourth grade played Minute To Win It Games and made fuzzy pencil monsters. They passed out their Valentine's and admired each other's boxes.

A special thank you to all the parents who helped make this day a memorable one.  Enjoy pictures of other activities around the school.

Tired of Winter?  We had Hawaii day in the middle of winter. Crazy right, I know! We all dressed up and had much fun pretending it was in the summer, in Hawaii!!  You might think we are coocoo, but having fun is one of our many mottoes!!



Have We Been in School For 100 Days Already?

Amanda Johnson, Lexie Crawford, Allie Young

100 Days of school at Park View have been amazing!  Here are a few of the activities that occured on the 100th day:

Ms. Lundell’s class celebrated with estimation jars; whoever could guess which jar had 100 candies in it got a surprise.  Ms. Lundell also hid 100 chocolate kisses and all the kids had to find them.  When they found all of them they put them on a 100 grid. They also did the aging booth. Ms. Lundell took pictures of each kid to see what they look like when they are 100. Last of all they tried to see if they could keep a balloon in the air for 100 taps.

The third grade did a writing activity where they compared and contrasted what they look like now, to what they will look like when they are 100 years old. 

Mrs. Toulpe’s class grew doughnuts from cheerios, and their doughnuts where yummy.  They also made towers with 100 cups.  They also got to see what they will look like when they are 100.    

 We love one hundred day!!

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.



New Year’s Resolution

Lizbeth Alvarado and Gracie Spencer

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.
