At the end of our last school year the student council held a fundraiser which earned over $900 - it was all donated to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation for cancer research. The money earned the school two paving stones to be placed in the Huntsman’s Walk of Hope in honor of Mrs. Walker, our beloved computer technician who passed away from cancer last March. Just recently the stones were placed. Thank you to all those who helped make this happen through so many generous donations.
Hi! My name is Mrs. Perkins. I have been a teacher for 17 years and now want to be a principal of a school. I have always loved working in a school full of lively active children, die-hard compassionate teachers, and staff. Park View is full of incredible people! A few things about me include: I have three grown children and one grand daughter, my favorite color is yellow, I love animals, I love to read, I love to take my jeep to the mountains and camp, I love to sing and play my piano, and spending time with my husband and family is my #1. I feel absolutely privileged being here at Park View Elementary. Everyone here at this school has been so welcoming and friendly. I thank you. Thanks for making me feel like I matter!
Park View Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit last week. GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools. Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum. Taylor will be working with Dance Integration this school year. 5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops. By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students created dancing EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHICS to share a message about Ancient Egypt. 3rd-4th grade will be visiting with the Dance Specialist in a couple of weeks as well. Wait until then to hear more!
Parents, here is a fun way to learn the seven habits. Ask your child to show you the actions or learn them on your own and surprise them with your skills!
