EEP Goals

This school year, all SLC schools are asked to write Excellence in Equity Plan goals. We have three goals the teachers have put together to focus on as a school until January. In January, we will report on our progress toward those goals and write three new goals to work on for the rest of the school year. On top of the three school goals, each grade level team or department within the school has been asked to write two goals that align with our four school vision statements and three school goals.

Semester 1 school goals:

Whole School Academic Need:

We will increase math fact automaticity (based on the Utah State Core fluency standards) in all grades so 50% or more of our students are proficient with math facts by the end of the first semester. This will be measured by monthly grade-level standard-based fluency assessments given by classroom teachers. All data will be compiled into a spreadsheet format by January 25.


Whole School Achievement Gap:

We will increase reading comprehension of all types of text for our identified struggling students. We will use fluency as a measure for K-2 as it directly impacts students ability to comprehend at the older grade levels. In grades K-2 this will be measured by DIBELS with 50% of students reaching benchmark (composite score) on the mid-year assessment. For grades 3-5, 50% of students will be proficient as measured by DAZE (mid-year benchmark), SRI (grade level Lexile range), or reading comprehension questions from interim data (76% correct on comprehension standards) by January 25.


Whole School Culture Need:

We will create a needs assessment to see how we can connect to the community to take a baseline for family involvement. This assessment will be handed out at SEPs and at the food bank nights to obtain parent feedback. We will use the data collected to create a goal for January through June. We will have monthly opportunities in every grade level for parents to attend a parent activity (measured by invitations sent out to parents and a school wide goal of 30%+ attendance each month). At each monthly event, all grade levels will provide every parent a predetermined handout and explanation of the importance of pre-K instruction, how to sign up for pre-K, and other resources available to them to support literacy and math before their child begins kindergarten.

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.

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.
