Park View had a bunch of little old men and women walking up and down the halls today, in celebration of the 100th day of school! When a second grader with gray hair and a walker was asked how old he was he answered “I’m super old. I’m eighteen!” I think it’s safe to say that everyone both young and “old” had a great time celebrating the number and the day 100.

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!
Students in 5th or 6th grades can now sign up for a Ski Utah Passport found HERE. Students in 5th grade can ski or snow three times at each of Utah's 13 resorts and 6th graders can ski or snowboard one time at each resort. The Passport also includes coupons for free or discounted lift tickets, rental equipment, lessons and other great winter activities.
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.
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 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.
