Second Grade read "Mr. Tanen's Tie Trouble" this week. As part of our language arts curriculum we enjoyed a visit from our amazing Tech Coach, Mr. Hanosek, who taught us how to tie a tie. Students practiced "How To Writing." They also practiced oral language skills by interviewing a classmate in order to design a tie for them. They then wrote about their experience.​  We had alittle trouble but ultimately we tamed those ties!

Breakfast for Park View Leaders

Park View Elementary News - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 9:50pm
(more pictures available)

Park View has worked hard teaching the seven habits of highly effective students, we want those that both attend and work at Park View to be leaders! Faculty and staff have had their eyes peeled, looking for students that are exhibiting the seven habits throughout the day. When students are caught being leaders they are rewarded with a brave note summarizing what they did that exhibited the seven habits. The student then takes the note to the office where they are celebrated. Students then pick a chip with a number written on it, this is the spot where they will write their name on our two-hundreds board. When a row is filled on the board, those students on that row are then treated to a lovely breakfast. 

Park View just had their first breakfast of the year and boy was it a treat! Waffles, equipped with whipped cream, Nutella, strawberries, syrup, and of course hot chocolate. Congratulations to the students that were lucky enough to attend! We are already looking forward to spoiling our next set of leaders!

Fire Drill Practice

Barnett Elementary News - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 3:53pm

Barnett Elementary knows how important it is to be prepared. Even in the most serious incidents. Our first week back from Winter Break, we had a fire drill. The alarms sound and flash, but no worries, Barnett students know what to do. They quickly line up and are prepared to exit out the closest door. Teachers lead them out to a designated safe location and take count of the students they have. When all students are accounted for, the classes reenter the school knowing they have just accomplished another important drill.
