Park View Elementary celebrated National Walk/Roll to School Day in the biggest way! Prior to the event, students were taught about the benefits of walking or rolling to school. They learned: Vitamin D is good for you, it's an act of self-love, it helps you connect with nature, it feels good to move your body and it is a fun way to stay physically healthy.
Do you have a teacher that you would like to recognize for being outstanding? Maybe they have made difference in your child's life? If so, we would love to encourage you, to nominate them, through the "Utah Jazz Most Valuable Educators Program"
This program allows community members to nominate local educators who are making an impact in their schools and/or communities. Educators who receive this honor will be guests at a Utah Jazz game, receive a personalized Jazz jersey, receive a $1,000 classroom grant, and will get a surprise classroom visit by the Jazz Bear mascot!
We had our very first assembly of the year today! We were graced with a performance from the Fiddle Tunes String Band. Students were able to learn about the history of folk/bluegrass music and were taught about each of the different instruments in the band. This assembly was made possible through Arts Incorporated which brings the arts into schools around Utah. Students instantly fell in love with the style of music. They dance, clapped and toe tapped through the entire assembly. Every second was loved!

As a school we feel extremely lucky and fortunate to have Doug Smith donate to our school.
Thanksgiving Point hosts a nonprofit program called "Tulips Journey North." This program provides third graders all around the state with the opportunity to become scientists in the classroom! Park View third graders were lucky enough to have scientist come to our school and help us explore different science standards. They did everything from dissect a tulip to observe and create a mealworm habitat. Thank You Thanksgiving Point Outreach program for sparking curiosity in our classrooms!
