Has your child been asking you for a pet reptile? Have they been rattling off random facts about cold blooded animals? Well, that is because students here at Park View were dazzled, amazed, and at times shocked at the reptiles presented at our third term rewards assembly. The assembly was educational and hands-on! What’s better than that? We are pretty sure everyone left wanting a pet reptile of their own.
Park View's beloved Kindergarten teacher was awarded Nebo School District's Teacher of the Year! If you want to feel energy and excitement for learning, you just visit Chrisann’s classroom. She makes learning fun and believes each child is capable of being successful. Chrisann understands and provides differentiated instruction ensuring the greatest chance for success for all her students. She especially looks out for the ‘underdogs’. Chrisann willingly provides professional development to our faculty. Her passion for education is contagious. We as a school could not be more proud to call her our own. Congratulations Chrisann, we love you!

Third grade students were shocked when Clint, from Clint’s Reptiles pulled out his snake Buttercup! The reptile show introduced the third grades ecosystems unit. They learned all about different reptiles and the ecosystems they come from. They were taught that snakes and most reptiles are more afraid of you then you are of them!
In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, Nebo School District is teaming up with KSL on February 22, 2018, as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Utah has a very powerful resource and that is the SafeUT app. As you all know, the SafeUT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stopped planned school attacks.
Our goal is to make sure that every parent, student and educator is aware of the app and has it downloaded on their phone.
Throughout the day, KSL will be highlighting all that the app can do, the history behind it, the success stories and much more. In addition, there will be some fun for the students. Below is the outline to encourage student involvement:
· Encourage your friends to download the app
· Use hashtag #SafeUT on posts
Individuals will be able to share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded for a chance to win a $50 visa card
These screenshots will need to be posted in the contest on the KSL TV Facebook page
The school that is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL!
The contest will start Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23 at 3 p.m.
Watch KSL News at 5 p.m. on Friday to see which school will be receiving 100 pizzas!

Park View sixth graders received a visit from Lance Conrad, the author of The Price of Creation series and The Weight of Swords. He entertained students with his personal experiences and discussed writing in a way that captivated students. After the visit, students were not only excited to read his books but to start writing their own stories as well. Thank you, Mr. Conrad, for taking the time to inspire our students!
