Each term Park View encourages good behavior with a rewards activity. Students work hard to be on their best behavior so they can attend these fun activities. This term students were rewarded with 30 minutes of sledding followed by hot chocolate and donuts. This is by far one of the best days of the year! Katelyn Kolling in third grade said, "This is the best day of my life!" We are so proud of our Park View Bee's and the effort they put in to make our school the best place to be.
Earlier this month students and faculty were impressed and proud of our outstanding fifth graders.They worked hard conducting interesting experiments. Some favorites were: how the Statue of Liberty turned green, does upbeat music increase your heart rate while exercising, how much sugar is in the soda you drink, and how to produce a battery from apples. Nice job to our hardworking fifth graders!
Lastly, a special thanks to our fifth grade teachers, Ms. Bird, Mr. Broadbent, and Mrs. Toutai for all the support and hard work in making the science fair great!
Do you want to earn cool prizes? Do you want to win hard cold cash? Do you like to watch teachers try to shoot baskets? Do you like to read? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are at the right school! All your child has to do is read every night and fill out the "It Pays To Read Calendar" and turn it in at the end of the month. For each row they complete their name is placed into a pot with other students in their class. This is where things get fun... Park View then puts on a fun assembly where teachers shoot baskets for the lucky students that had their name drawn from the pot, for every basket made they earn two dollars. Even if their name isn't drawn they can still earn awesome prizes and possibly even a kindle!
We love when our students read, turn in those calendars!
Thursday, December 15 Park View Elementary was able to hear the sweet melodies sung by our very own! They sang Christmas songs and for the finale sang the hit soundtrack from Zootopia "Try Everything." It was a lot of fun to see all of their hardwork pay off!
A special thanks to the choir teacher Ms. Diana! If you want your child to join choir see the office for details at the beginning of the year. Choir practice is every Wednesday for about an hour after school.
Everyone here at Park View wants to give you a big THANK YOU for donating to our food drive. We were able to bring in over 2,500 canned goods and nonperishable food items, what a success! This food will be go to families within our school boundaries and school district.
Thanks again for helping us give back to the community!
On December first students of Park View Elementary got to experience how cool science really is! Oak Canyon Jr. High Science Demo Team came and presented several awesome science expereiments. They opened the assembly with a fire dance party. They trapped propane gas inside of a PVC pipe, sound waves from loud music moved the gases making flames emit from the PVC pipe, it was incredible! They presented on gases, chemicals, air, light, force and a lot more. Mrs. Ward and Madison Walker were privledged enough to ride on a homemade hover craft, a student was put inside of a massive bubble and for the finale... Mrs. Ellsworth laid on a bed of nails! It was nail biter ;)
Thank you Oak Canyon Jr. High Science Team!
The Kindergarten students were extra lucky this Thanksgiving season because they got to indulge in a Thanksgiving feast at school! Students wore pilgrim hats and made necklaces from cereal. Parents were invited to feast with their children, they feasted on: turkey, pie, mashed potatoes, rolls, and vegetables.
What a fun way to bring in the season!
