We held our 2nd annual Student Job Fair at our school last night, and it was a big success. Teachers and Staff prepared posters and applications for students to read about the different positions we will have available this year. Students were able to fill out applications for the jobs they are interested in, and will find out if they have been hired soon. If you weren't able to attend the job fair last night, you can get an application from Mrs. Buchanan in Leadership Academy. Thank you for a great night!

New this year to Park is the Parent Lighthouse Team. Our purpose is to help parents learn and implement the habits into their homes. Every month we come up with a challenge or activity for students and parents that goes along with the habit that we are working on. For the month of September, we are challenging students to work on Habit 8, Find Your Voice. Our team has recently set up a blog and a YouTube news channel. Each month kids will have the opportunity to apply to be on the Lighthouse News. Please check out our first news report on the Park Panthers Elementary School YouTube Channel.

Our kindergarten classes had a great first day of school! They went on a scavenger hunt to find the Gingerbread Man. They got clues from a lot of different helpers around the school before they finally found him. This was a really fun way for our new kindergarten students to get a tour of the school and learn different rules and procedures as they searched for their missing cookies.

Mrs. Hanks will be teaching a resource class this year at Park! We are so excited to have her and welcome her as a Park Panther!
Here is a little about Mrs. Hanks in her own words:
I grew up in Salt Lake City and have attended both BYU and the University of Utah. I started teaching in 1992 and taught for 10 years in Davis School District in Washington State, both in Regular Elementary Education and Special Education. We were finally blessed to be parents of a daughter in 2003 and twin boys in 2005. We returned to Utah in 2005 and moved to Levan, Utah in 2008. I am in my 8th year serving on the school board in Juab School District and have enjoyed being involved at that level of education, but my absolute love is working with students. I look forward to returning to the classroom and am excited to teach at Park Elementary. WELCOME TO PARK! We're glad you're here!
I am super excited to meet my new kindergarten students. Every student must come in to take the Kindergarten entrance exam. Please click on this link and sign up for an open spot. If none of the times work for you, please contact me: email@example.com
