Students of the Month Show Charity

Submitted by joann.kirk on

When we do any good to others, we do as much, or more, good to ourselves.  Benjamin Whichcote

December was the month to think about others, serve others and show kindness.  Park View provided many opportunities to serve through the teddy bear drive, the food drive, Santa letters and the blanket and coat drive. Everyone gave of their surplus to help others who may want.   These students were nominated by their classmates for their extra charitable hearts.

Welcoming Mrs. Bird

Mrs. Prina, our favorite fifth grade teacher has left us. Her last day was just before Christmas break.  The students and faculty will miss her terribly.  She has been teaching for six years.  Some of her favorite treats are gingerbread and chocolate.  Her favorite games are Tella Striations, and Signs.  We wish her much happiness as she serves her little family.  We will always remember her smile and creative ideas.  She was an amazing teacher.

Submitted by joann.kirk on

Crafts, games, gift exchanges, cookie decorating, pajama and pizza parties, breakfast, and poem creation were all activities planned by parents and teachers to prepare for the holiday excitement.  

Here is a poem written by Mrs. Marsh's second grade class:

Glitzen

There once was a reindeer named Glitzen,

Who had a crush on Blitzen.

He was so cute,

And never a brute,

She always wanted to kiss him.

Now enjoy these pictures:

Submitted by joann.kirk on

  Students of Park View have been reading incredible amounts in order to participate in the "It Pays to Read Activity".  It was loud!  It was exciting!  It was worth reading! Two students who read the required amount of minutes were chosen from each class to assemble an all pro team to win prizes and money.  Members of the High School Basketball team and faculty members were among the candidates chosen to shoot baskets for money.
