We just wrapped up our annual Park View Arts Festival! This is a fun program run 100% through our Park View Parent Group (PVP). We had a big assembly to celebrate everyone who entered the festival and awards were given to those that won first, second, third place and best in show. All of the art had to fit under this year's theme of "I can be successful!" Look or the winners (best in show) hanging in the hallway by the lunchroom. 

Congratulations to everyone who entered!

Utah County Search and Rescue Visit!

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on

The third graders in Mrs. Jasperson's literacy class had quite the surprise when a volunteer for Utah County Search and Rescue popped in to teach them a little bit about outdoor survival techniques. Mrs. Jasperson's literacy class has been reading the classic novel Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. It's about a young boy who ends up in the Canadian wilderness due to some unfortunate circumstances. He is forced to learn how to survive. The students have been so interested in the boys survival that they wanted to hear real life stories of people who have also overcome wilderness hardships.

Black bubble gum, black bubble gum that comes alive and finds its way into Tommy's mouth. This was the premise of the story students got to listen to from a very talented story teller. Students that had good behavior this term were rewarded with a fun story telling assembly full of funny tales. They were also rewarded with a pop it keychain! Thank you to Arts and Education for coming to our school. We sure do love good behavior, we are so happy for all the students who got to participate!

Grandparents Day!

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on

Bagels, bananas, oranges, Sunny D and chocolate milk were plated with care early this morning in preparation for our annual grandparents day! We love grandparents at Park View and we saw that Park View students love their grandparents too. Students had the opportunity to have some one on one time with their grandparents  and spoil them with a yummy breakfast. After breakfast the grandparents had the chance to return the favor and spoil their grandkids with books from the book fair! Smiles were had, tummies were filled and memories were made. We love Grandparents!
