Ms. Seegmiller's class wrapped up their Energy unit by building their very own solar ovens. The purpose of this activity was to demonstrate energy conversion from different forms. They created their structures, placed their s'mores, and patiently waited. After 20 minutes, their s'mores were melted to perfection! The students worked so hard throughout this unit and deserved a tasty treat to celebrate all that they've learned!

Our fourth graders have worked hard on their Fractured Fairy Tales the last few weeks and wanted to share their work with others. Ms. Seegmiller's 4th grade class joined Mrs. Gull's 2nd grade class to read them their stories. Our second graders loved being read to and were even able to take away a few ideas for their own writing.
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.
