Holiday Performances

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Mon, 12/30/2019 - 13:55

Before school let out for break Park View students had the privledge of seeing two wonderful performances!

The first performance was a play, A Christmas Carol, put on by the drama after school club and directed by the one and only Mrs. Hancock. These kids have been working so hard at perfecting this play and the hard work definitely payed off! Thank you Mrs. Hancock, for nurturing the love of the arts in these kids. 

The second performance was both by the school orchestra and the school choir. The orchestra showed off their talents and skills taught by Mrs. Johnson and did a wonderful job! The choir got us excited with songs about snow and the holidays. The new choir group is set to start at the beginning of the year, if you want your child to join fill out an application at the front office! Thank you to Miss Diana for helping our students stay on pitch. 


Christmas Chaos

Now that the busy Christmas season is over, we can share some of the fun events that happened! 

The week before Christmas break sure was crazy at Park View. We had Christmas hats, Christmas socks, Christmas sweaters, and even a day spent in our pj’s. We sang Christmas songs for each other and for our parents. Hopefully our singing helped you to feel the Christmas spirit. The Park View Parents (PVP) came and read each class a Christmas story, we love having parents in the classrooms. Finally, we ended the week with class Christmas parties filled with waffles, candy canes, fun reindeer games and yes, even a visit from...SANTA! We hope you had a very merry Christmas and an even better New Year!

Becoming Artists

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Thu, 11/21/2019 - 17:21

Teachers and students alike have been learning new ways to show off their creativity. Many classes have been experimenting with different art mediums and connecting visual arts with the curriculum. Mrs. Palmer, the district art specialist has come into the classes to help teach these cool art projects. 

Third grade got to learn all about folktales, Mt. Timpanogos folktale to be exact. They use paint and brayers to show their view of Mt. Timpanogos. 

Fourth grade learned about the artist Georgia O’Keeffe and tried to mimic her work using oil pastels. They created the many wildflowers of Utah.

Fifth Grade did some really fun artwork by drawing patriotic images over copies of the Declaration of Independence.

The classes really enjoyed these art projects, not to mention they make our hallways look pretty! Thanks Mrs. Palmer for all your help. 

Celebrity Sightings at Park View

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Thu, 11/21/2019 - 17:05

Did you see all the celebrities at Park View yesterday? We had everyone from Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Temple, Stan Lee, and even Robert E. Lee! 

Fifth grade students have been working hard for weeks in preparation for their big night at the wax museum. Students created a poster filled with research, they had artifacts that represented their famous person, and they memorized speeches. Last night was certainly a night to remember at Park View. Make sure to click through pictures to see these celebrities in action!


Up, Up, Up and Away!

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Wed, 11/20/2019 - 18:31

Up, up, up and away! Our sixth grade students had an awesome science project that ended up with balloons in the sky. Students learned about what it takes in order for hot air balloons to fly; Perfect weather conditions, hot air and obviously a balloon. The balloons were the fun part! In groups, students constructed a hot air balloon out of tissue paper, glue and tape. Some of the balloons flew better than others but regardless it was quite a show for the entire school. We want to give a huge shout out to Duane Merrell for his help with the hot air balloon launchers. He is one of the stellar professors from BYU who teaches S.T.E.M to teachers in our district. 

Thanks sixth graders and their teachers for a fun show yesterday!


Valley Visioning Wants to Hear Your Voice

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Mon, 11/04/2019 - 19:39

A unique opportunity is awaiting you! We want you to weigh in on the future of our community, while also earning funds for our school. This fall, Envision Utah is helping Utah Valley residents and stakeholders create a vision for the future as we add nearly 1 million people to our population over the next 50 years. This effort – called Valley Visioning – has culminated into the Valley Visioning survey, linked below.

The survey gives Utah Valley residents the chance to weigh in on growth-related issues important to our future. It will serve as the foundation for a vision with specific strategies which will help ensure Utah Valley remains a great place to call home, now and in the future.

The survey is also a good chance for us to get support for our school. Please take the survey and type in our school’s name at the end. For every survey completed by a parent, teacher, or student (13 years or older), Ancestry and Adobe (in partnership with Envision Utah) have agreed to donate $1.50 to our school.

We cannot stress how invaluable of an opportunity this is for us all to share our voices to define our future. Please take the survey and share it with your friends, family, and everyone you know! Additional information is available at

Scholastic Book Fair Coming

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Tue, 10/29/2019 - 16:23

The book fair is next week, November 4th-8th! This is a great opportunity for you to get high interest books into your childs hands. Here is what you need to know:

1. Teacher Preview: Teachers attend the book fair before it starts and make book recommendations. These are books the teachers have loved and want you to love them too. 

2. All For Books: This is a really great program that helps the school buy books. Donate your loose change at the book fair, round up your purchase, or buy an airhead for only 25 cents.

3. Teacher Wishlists: Teachers will make a wishlist of books they would love to have in their classroom. If you want, you can buy a book for your childs teacher. When you donate a book the child can write their name on the inside cover. Their teacher will love their new gift and always remember who gave it to them! Look for the wishlists at the fair

4. Grandparent Breakfast: All of Park View students are invited to bring a grandparent or special adult friend to a continental breakfast on Thursday, November 7th from 8:00 a.m - 8:30 a.m. Last year we had a wonderful turn out but not enough food. Don't worry this year your bellies will be full! We encourage you to visit the book fair before, during or after the breakfast.
