Penny wars!

Submitted by joann.kirk on Sun, 03/27/2016 - 19:11

Here it is again! The Penny Wars! And if  you're wondering what the Penny Wars are, then you have been lost! Well the Penny Wars are when all the classes each have two jars, a negative and a positive. Silver coins count as bombs/negative coins, pennies count as positive points! And whichever class has the most pennies, gets a pizza party. Second place gets a rootbeer float party! And third place gets popsicles. The reason for the penny wars, is to get more chromebooks and ipads for our school. Also we have a goal to get to $3,000!

Third grade Mall!

Submitted by joann.kirk on Sun, 03/27/2016 - 18:56

The third grade had a Mall a couple of weeks ago.  All year long, students earned tickets for good work and cooperation.  They were able to use their tickets for items at the Mall.  Some kids were selling pixy sticks, painting fingernails, and shooting a nerf gun at Cooper and Gabriel.  Some of the teachers were buying sodas and other stuff.  Mrs. Jasperson’s favorite part was shooting Cooper and Gabriel with Nerf guns.

Reading Week Activities

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.
