Five Fabulous Golden Bees

Submitted by shanna.stirland on Fri, 05/28/2021 - 11:01

These five fifth graders went the extra mile this year in order to earn the prestigious Golden Bee Award. This is an award that can only be earned by Park View Fifth Graders. It required persistance and dedication to complete all of the requirements. All of these students said they were glad they stuck with it - even when it got hard. Some of the things they mentioned they enjoyed doing were interviewing a veteran, reading books from the book list and the service hours they gave to the school. Great Job Golden Bees!

Our fifth grade students were excited to show off their state research projects today.  They've been working hard for the last few weeks, finding out all kinds of interesting facts about their assigned state. They even got to show off their state research projects to the different classes in the school! We really do have "Fifty, Nifty, United States". Way to go fifth grade!

Arbor Day with Payson City!

Last week the third grade students had a very special opportunity to participate in an arbor day activity! They were invited on a mini field trip to the park across the street to plant a couple of trees in honor of arbor day. Mayor Bill Wright was in attendance and told them that the trees being planted are planted in the name of veteran. The trees were donated by the one and only Olson’s Garden Shoppe! In addition to planting the trees at the park, two lucky students went home with a tree to plant in their yard.

Mrs. Baker Awarded Crystal Apple Award

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Tue, 05/04/2021 - 16:17

Jen Baker Is an amazing, fun, caring, creative, and dynamic teacher. She cares about each of her students and makes sure each child has what they need to succeed in her classroom and in life. Mrs. Baker takes the extra time to help the student who may be apprehensive about being away from their parents. She works hard to find solutions for the student who is having behavioral issues. If a student needs extra work learning a concept, she finds ways to help that student be successful. Even though she is part-time employee, she spends many of her own hours working in her classroom.
