Students met together on January 3rd to celebrate the first Victory Assembly for 61 leaders from Park Elementary.  Victory Assemblies are a way to recognize students as leaders in the areas of math, reading, and leadership in the classroom.  Students are selected by their teachers and recognized during a Victory Assembly on the first Friday of each month.   

Sing Around the Tree

A cherished Park tradition around this time of year is Sing Around the Tree.  Park students gathered in the auditorium for three days to sing Christmas songs and listen to a Christmas story read by a Park Elementary celebrity (Mrs. Banks, Mrs. Barron, Grandma Pat).  

The most exciting event took place on Thursday, December 19th, when Santa Claus made an appearance as students sang Here Comes Santa Claus.  Students were thrilled as Santa made his way down the aisle to greet them!
