While the State Legislature is in session, leaders from Park Elementary had the opportunity to visit the state capital and showcase The Leader in Me to some of our state representatives.

Monday, February 3, 2014 started out very early for six Park Panthers: Tyrel Bird, Logan Castor, Auston Castor, Katie Stauffer, Baylee Carter, and Hampton White.  These student leaders shared their Leadership Binder with legislators and discussed personal goals, why they made that goal, and made new goals after celebrating with a victory.

Reading Superbowl

It was a battle of the books as Mrs. Sorensen's class collided in  a Reading Superbowl that was held for two weeks leading up to the real Superbowl last weekend. The class was divided into two teams, the Broncos and the Seahawks.  Students read each night and turned in their minutes on a football the following day.  Whichever team had the most minutes read the night before, scored a touchdown for their team. It was a nailbiting event as the score went back and forth and ended up being a close game.  In the end the Broncos ended up winning by 1 touchdown.
