Park View Student of the Month assembly was held on February 1st to honor those who have displayed outstanding academic and behavioral achievement. To begin the assembly, the first grade students taught the quality of respect. They shared their thoughts about respect for ourselves by doing your best and saying such things as, “I’m important,” and “I can do my best.” Respect for property includes keeping the school clean and not taking things that belong to others. Respect for others involves using kind words and being helpful.

Park View Celebrates100th Day of School

The first grade students at Park View Elementary celebrated the 100th day of school on January 31.   They had fun learning about place value, practicing skip counting, having a read-a-thon, and counting snacks to make our "100 hash" (10 of each treat makes 100). We also made some cool glasses and badges.  Miss Olsen, commented, “Who knew 100 days could go by so fast?! The school year is more than half over. I am amazed at the progress the kids have made in the last 100 days, especially in reading.  It's so exciting to see them succeed!”

Park View Student of the Month Assembly, held on January 5, 2012, was full of educational activities and learning.  The second grade students taught the value of the month, ‘Friendship.’  Each of the students wrote an essay on what they thought constituted being a good friend.  Some of the ideas shared were:  “Friends mean everything to me.”  “Friends help you when you are sad.”  “Friends respect you and your property.”  Friends fill your life with joy.”  Then, they sang a song called, “Make New Friends.” They taught us that new friends are like silver and old friends are like gold.
