On Wednesday, January 23 (TOMORROW) students will be rewarded with a Snow Day Activity for their good behavior during the 2nd Term.  Students need to be dressed warmly – boots, hats, gloves and coats.  Students are not to bring sleds from home.  Each grade will get 30 minutes to play in the snow, or slide down the hill sitting on our industrial strength garbage sacks.  They then will be treated to a cup of hot cocoa and a donut. 

Stay tuned for some fun sledding photos!

The students with their names on the lucky line of the 200 Board were treated to hot cocoa and Christmas cookies.  Students get their names on the 200 Board by receiving Brave Notes.  Those Brave Notes come for being recognized for exhibiting leadership qualities from the Seven Habits.  We appreciate all of our students for BEEing Leaders, and hopeful others students will land on the lucky line for the next Leader party.

Santa made a surprise visit to Park View.  His reindeer unexpectedly dropped him off while they went to get their hooves done.  Students found him on the roof of the school during a fire drill.  Fortunately he was rescued by the Payson Fire Department. Santa must have met up with his reindeer because it looks like he made it to the homes of the students for Christmas. Happy Holidays. 

Crystal Apple Award Recipient

Amber Gull, one of our third-grade teachers has been chosen by the faculty to receive the coveted Crystal Apple award! This award is given to those who make a significant impact in the lives of children.

Mrs. Gull truly is an outstanding educator. Our school has been extremely lucky to have Amber in our faculty. She has taught several interns and has been a mentor to many teachers here at Park View. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and share her awesome teaching ideas.

While our faculty is lucky to have her, the students that have been in her classroom are even luckier. She makes each and every one of her students feel important and validated. She cares for all her students and expects success from them. Mrs. Gull seems to balance all of the many responsibilities of teaching with ease. She really is one of a kind.

Congratulations Mrs. Gull on receiving the Crystal Apple award! We are happy to call you a Park View Bee.

 

It Pays To Read!

Attributions: 

It really does pay to read! Every day your child reads, mark it off on their It-Pays-To-Read recording sheet. When they turn that sheet in at the end of the month their name is put into a drawing for cold hard cash and other prizes.

Today the students that were randomly drawn received a present with a secret amount of cash hidden inside. What is better than ripping apart a Christmas present in front of the whole school and finding money inside? These kids couldn’t be happier!

Make sure you read every night and turn in your It-Pays-To-Read recording sheet. Who knows, you might just be the next lucky winner.

Help Put Books in the Classroom

Attributions: 

Looking for an educational Christmas gift? Buy your child a book! Here at Park View we want our students to continue reading every night, even through the holiday break!

Scholastic book orders are a great way to help your child and your child’s teacher. Every time you place an order through Scholastic using your teacher’s special code, you help put a book in the classroom!

It’s easy! All you have to do is look through the catalog your teacher sends home or online and place your order using your teacher’s code. Your teacher will place the order and when the books arrive will be sent home with your child.

Now is the perfect time to order your books so they get here in time for Christmas. If you want to order books through Scholastic, ask your child’s teacher for their code and a catalog!

 

Celebrities Spotted at Park View

Attributions: 

Earlier this month Park View had the privilege of hosting a night dedicated to some of the world’s most famous celebrities! Did you have a chance to see them in real life?

The fifth grade put on a spectacular wax museum! The students dressed up as their favorite historical figure and prepared informational speeches about them. Both parents and students alike had a great time listening and learning about these influential people.

Thank you to the students who worked hard on their project, parents who lent a helping hand, and most of all the fifth-grade teaching team.
