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.

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

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.

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!

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!
