The Utah Symphony through the Professional Outreach Programs in the Schools (POPS), were able to once again visit our District and perform a concert for the 4th grade students. The performance was held at Maple Mountain High School this year. Our Park Fourth grade students looked fabulous as they boarded the bus all decked out in their finest clothes ready to hear Musical Magic: Stories Come to Life. The symphony was conducted by David Cho. The students heard music from a Harry Potter movie, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
The Park Elementary sixth grade classes visited the Viet Nam Moving Wall at the Spanish Fork Cemetery on Monday, September 13, 2010. The students were awed by the number of men and women, 58,000, who died trying to preserve freedom. Andrew Stamm found the name of his great-uncle on the wall.
With the start of a new school year we have great new teachers and staff at Park School. In kindergarten is Lori Moosman. In second grade is Maridan Jensen. In the third grade is Brittany Wride. The fifth grade has Jamie Hickey and Becca Dewey. Our new staff developer is Michael Duncan. Our new Intern coach is Deana Coates and we have Lisa Muirbrook as our Intern Principal. We hope they all feel welcome at Park School!
What a great way to start out the new school year. It was Dads & Doughnuts for the sixth grade students on September 3rd. Everyone enjoyed a good book and a yummy doughnut!
