During the week of February 29 and March 4, Park View Students celebrated Reading Week with many exciting events.  Each day, students rotated to various classrooms to hear stories of adventure, laughter and lessons.  On Wednesday, an assembly was presented with stories and fun.  Teachers became characters acting out the stories of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and The Gingerbread Man.  It was fun to see them so animated as they got into their parts.  Students also dressed up as their favorite Dr. Suess character.

 Friendship and sharing was witnessed at Park View on Valentine's Day.  Students created Valentine Boxes to receive cards and made Valentines to share with their friends.  It was a day to remember.  Here are some of the activities that occured during the day:  Mrs. Thomas’s kindergarten class exchanged candy.   They had the joy of decorating cookies and cupcakes.   They learned about friendship by practicing how to be kind.  They also learned about Charlotte's and Wilber's  friendship from the book Charlotte's Web and how boys and girls can be friends.
