On January 19, 2011 the annual Spelling Bee was held. The competition was tough as usual. The teachers and audience of the fourth through sixth grade students and parents held their breath as we watched students spell words that some of us couldn't even pronounce. All those who competed are to be commended for getting to this level of spelling expertise. The school is very proud of you. The final 3 were Britney Jensen-3rd place, Wynter Watkins-2nd place and Sam Weaver in first place. Sam went on to compete at the district level in March.
On February 24, 2011 our students were delighted by a production of Babe, the Sheep Pig. This assembly was presented by the Young Company of Brigham Young University. The play was performed in the middle of the auditorium instead of on the stage. The students were seated on the floor around a large X pathway between them. This X pathway was where most of the action took place. Many Park students got to join the actors by being ducks, dogs, puppies, sheep and a camera man. The story truly came to life.
Elaine Olsen's Preschool students became city builders recently. Each preschool student got to design a building or business that would be part of their city. From the looks of their city, the future looks bright.
Miss Wride's third grade class created a portrait of Martin Luther King Jr. that needs to be shared. On separate pieces of art paper the students painted sections of what would eventually be a portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr. If you didn't have an oppurtunity to see it hanging outside their classroom, here it is. There are definitely many artists in Miss Wride's class.
