The songs Jingle Bells, Rudolph, Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer, the Grinch, and the Twelve Days of Christmas were heard ringing through the halls of Park View during the month of December as students practiced singing to prepare for the annual Singing Around the Tree. Scores of parents came to veiw the event. Santa even paid a visit to our school to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Our Music Specialist, Mrs. Anderson, taught each grade a song to share using insturments which enhanced the music and allowed the students to feel the music on a higher level.
The Park View Choir and Orchestra performed beautiful Music to help bring the Christmas Spirit into the hearts of the students. Thanks to all students who come before school and stay after school to practice. Thanks to the directors, Mrs. Diana and Jami Losee for the talents they share and their dedicated service to our students. Enjoy these pictures of the performances.
The PTA organized a wonderful event for the students of our school, Christmas Books and Candy Canes. Parents, elves and even Mrs. Claus were asked to come and share their favorite Christmas Book; each student received a Candy Cane to munch on while they listened to the stories. This was a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit. Thanks to all those who helped organize this special occasion for the students.
Park View students are showing Charity during the month of December by sharing stuffed animals, canned food and blankets or coats to cheer the hearts of their neighbors. They were able to collect 569 stuffed animals. The count is still out on the canned food and more information will be coming as students bring blankets and coats this week to warm souls. Thanks or your generosity.
“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”

At the Native American presentation we learned about how the Native Americans helped the early settlers survived. They showed us dances, taught us where each of the tribes live, and showed us pictures of how the chief dresses. We learned how Native Americans made chocolate and planted tomatoes and potatoes. They showed us a baby in a cradle board.
