Message from Mrs. Bergera

Dear Parkview Parents,

Parkview Families,

This will be our last newsletter for the school year.  It has been a pleasure working with you and your children during this school year.  We have enjoyed watching our students get excited about learning.  We have seen such growth and perseverance throughout the school year.  We hope that you have an enjoyable summer break and look forward to seeing you in the fall.  Letters regarding student registration will be mailed during the summer.  Please make sure your contact information has been updated in the office before the end of the school year.

Our school carnival is next Wednesday, May 24th.  Thank you to the PTA for sponsoring this event for our families.  Our last day of school is on Friday, June 2nd.  We would love to see you at our end of the year assembly on Friday, June 2nd at 11:00. Students will be dancing, singing, and playing musical instruments. 

-Mrs. Bergera & Mr. Yates

Salt Lake City children plant trees to celebrate Arbor Day

Salt Lake City’s urban forestry workers got a helping hand Friday from a group of second-graders from Parkview Elementary.

The children helped plant trees at the southwest corner of Jordan Park, at 1060 S. 900 West, and received a demonstration about the importance of trees and the best way to care for them.

“Trees are assets to our city,” Tony Gliot, the city’s urban forestry manager, said in a news release. “They improve our air quality, cool our neighborhoods and promote an overall sense of good health in our communities.”

Math Hoops Tournament

The 5th grade students attended the Math Hoops Tournament on April 5, 2017, at Vivint Smart Home arena. The students have been playing Math Hoops,  a fun way to practice their math facts, all year.  The teams from Parkview competed against teams of students from 5-8th grade from other schools.  The students were nervous at first but had a great time showing off their math skills.  Please enjoy the Photo Gallery!

5th Grade studying Bio Eyes

This week the 5th grade had the opportunity to participate in the Bio Eyes Program. We had a scientist come from the University of Utah and helped guide us through an experiment with zebra fish. We learned that zebra fish live in tropical waters. We did an experiment where we watched the fish embryos grow at 75 degree water and 87 degree water. We saw that the fish developed faster in the 87 degree water than the 75 degree water. The students had a blast and learned a lot. "It was fun because we were able to watch a fish transfer into life and watch an embryo go through the stages"- Tu'ui.

ELP students Mythology display in the Library

4th grade ELP students have a display in the library following the Mythology museum presented to the school Wed. Feb 15. ELP students have studied  mythology as a group and then pursued an individual research project on a character in mythological history. Students did research and provided jot notes in a display form with a model created from their research. While designing their model students had to use text evidence for accuracy. Culminating their display was a piece of persuasive writing about the historical importance of their chosen character. Students used creativity in creating their displays and were excited to be the museum curators telling about their research to fellow students! There was much excitement in the air!

First grade students got to experience This Is the Place Heritage Park

On Thursday, October 6th the first grade students at Parkview got to experience This Is the Place Heritage Park!  We saw what it would have been like to live around 1850.  We tried some of the chores children would have done during that time, including milking a cow, beating a rug, and hanging up the laundry to dry.  We also learned about the process of turning wool from a sheep into yarn to be used to make clothing.  As we rode a train around the village, we saw the monument placed where Brigham Young decided that this would be a good place for people to call home.

Parkview is building college awareness

“Growl Bengals, Growl!” In an effort to get our kids excited about going to college, Ms. Miller’s 3rd grade class reached out to Idaho State University to let them know we are supporting and representing them at Parkview.  Her class received an enthusiastic response from the College of Education! They were pleased to hear her class’s goals for being college ready and were kind enough to send some “ISU swag”. They sent a care package full of fun stuff, like t-shirts, sunglasses, stickers, a Benny the Bengal balloon (their mascot), and more.

            This year at Parkview, Thursdays have been dedicated to wearing college swag to show support for various colleges. Ms. Miller’s class was excited to show off their swag to the rest of the school last Thursday! They wore their ISU t-shirts and sunglasses all day!  Ms. Miller’s class is working hard to be college ready so they can go to a school like ISU.
