Teachers and students alike have been learning new ways to show off their creativity. Many classes have been experimenting with different art mediums and connecting visual arts with the curriculum. Mrs. Palmer, the district art specialist has come into the classes to help teach these cool art projects. 

Third grade got to learn all about folktales, Mt. Timpanogos folktale to be exact. They use paint and brayers to show their view of Mt. Timpanogos.

Did you see all the celebrities at Park View yesterday? We had everyone from Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Temple, Stan Lee, and even Robert E. Lee! 

Fifth grade students have been working hard for weeks in preparation for their big night at the wax museum. Students created a poster filled with research, they had artifacts that represented their famous person, and they memorized speeches. Last night was certainly a night to remember at Park View. Make sure to click through pictures to see these celebrities in action!

 

Up, Up, Up and Away!

Up, up, up and away! Our sixth grade students had an awesome science project that ended up with balloons in the sky. Students learned about what it takes in order for hot air balloons to fly; Perfect weather conditions, hot air and obviously a balloon. The balloons were the fun part! In groups, students constructed a hot air balloon out of tissue paper, glue and tape. Some of the balloons flew better than others but regardless it was quite a show for the entire school. We want to give a huge shout out to Duane Merrell for his help with the hot air balloon launchers.
