What is more out of this world than a third grader? How about third graders at the planetarium learning all about out of this world stuff? The third grade field trip to Clark Planetarium was so much fun. They were treated to a movie in the dome theater, a presentation in front a massive earth shaped sphere and finally a yummy lunch at the park. Some of the students favorite exhibits were: the real life meteor, the tornado simulator, building and launching rockets into space, and an adventure onto the planet Mars, equipped with rovers and everything. It really was an out of this world field trip!

First grade was able to witness the life cycle of butterflies first hand! This is a perfect example of hands on learning. The kids not only learned about the butterflies life cycle, but they also had the opportunity to witness it up close within the classroom! After waiting patiently for the rainstorms to pass they were able to release the butterflies. It was difficult for the first graders, they wanted to keep them as pets, but ultimately they were able to see the little ladies fly free.
The third grade students worked day in and day out researching, creating, and discovering things about the six major biomes of the earth. To celebrate they showed off their hard work to their families at their parent biome night. Parents were able to read their research, listen and watch a persuasive video on why their biome is the best and finally get a miniature view into what the different biomes look like. The parents were impressed and the students were proud. We think that makes for a pretty successful night!
The kindergarten students in Mrs. Toelupe’s class have been busy making scientific observations about caterpillars. They learned all about what caterpillars look like and what they eventually become. Scroll through the pictures to take a look at these scientists and their awesome writing skills too.
Last week we got to celebrate our Queen Bee on principals day! Mrs. Walker is a serious rock star in the halls, the students here at Park View absolutely love her. She does so much for our school and we can’t thank her enough. We sure are lucky to have her be the queen of this busy hive!
Have you see Sam shoveling snow during the cold, snow mornings? Do you see Sam putting out and picking up the big yellow cones before and after school? Maybe you have spotted Sam in the halls changing light bulbs, cleaning the walls or fixing something for a teacher. Has Sam ever made you or your child smile? We are so incredibly lucky to have Sam Bellows work at Park View as head sweeper. On April 22, 2019 Sam was awarded classified employee of the year! Sam is more than just a sweeper, he is a comedian, he is a friend, he is reliable, and he is so fun to have around. He is so deserving of this award and we are so proud to call him a Park View Bee! Thank you for everything you do for our school Sam, we love you. If you have a memory or something great to say about Sam let us know, we would love to hear about it. You can email your child’s teacher or comment below. #nebohero

This last week UVU's Theatre for Youth and Education brought the production of Tomato Plant Girl to our students in first through third grade. This performance is a simple story of a little girl who is bullied by her bossy best friend and who learns how to play with an imaginary Tomato Plant Girl while gaining the confidence to play alone if she needed to. This production touched on topics like growing tomato plants, avoiding "girl-bullying" and moving into a new neighborhood. Tomoato Plant Girl was so fun to watch! Thank you UVU for providing us with this awesome experience.
The Utah Shakespeare Festival is once again hitting the road with its Shakespeare-in-the-Schools touring production – this year performing one of the world’s first psychological thrillers, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
An evening performance for everyone is this Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 at Springville High School, 1205 East 900 South, Springville, UT. Another performance will be held on Monday, April 15, at 3:30 p.m. at Spanish Fork High, 300 West 99 North, Spanish Fork. And, admission is free.
Michael Bahr, the festival’s education director directed this production. “For many of our audiences this will be the first time they have seen a professional Shakespeare production,” said Bahr. “This program seeks to entertain, enrich, and educate with innovative and accessible performances to rural and urban schools and communities, many of which would not have this opportunity otherwise.”
Come be entertained and enriched with one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays – and again, admission is free!!!
