Free Preschool at Park Elementary
Hello Park Elementary Parents,
I am excited to share some changes that will be happening in our Preschool program next year. In the past, all screenings have been done at the Summit Center and decisions have been made at the district level. We will be changing that next year and placement will be made at the school level.
What this means to you:
Utah Food Bank
The Utah Food bank will be here tomorrow, February 28th, right after school. This is an opportunity that is open to ALL of our students!
Utah Food Bank Truck
The Utah Food Bank truck will be here tomorrow right after school! This is open for all of our Park students and food can be picked up right after school.
Utah Parent Center Workshop
The Utah Parent Center has decided to offer a free hybrid in-person AND live zoom workshop on March 9 through Nebo District/Utah Parent Center to help answer difficult behavior questions parents may have, and to help them know what they can do as parents. This workshop can be attended by anyone who is interested and will apply to both children and teens.
Another win goes to Mrs. Pearson's first grade class as our spirit winners this week. This makes five wins in a row! Way to wear those spirit colors first grade friends.
Crystal Apple Award Winner
Heather Jones was awarded the Crystal Apple Award this week by Craig Harvey. Heather is an awesome Kindergarten teacher here at Park! She is kind and friendly and always has a smile on her face. Heather is an incredibly hard worker and is always willing to not only help her kindergarten team but everyone at Park. She is great at talking through problems and solutions and is a fantastic team player. Heather works hard to make sure that her students are not only learning the material but understand it as well.
Spring Picture Day
Spring picture day is coming up on March 1st!
4th Grade Guest Teachers
The fourth grade had guest teachers from the students at Spanish Fork High School. These students are taking the Teaching as a Profession class! They taught a social studies lesson on mountain men, the fur trade and the part that they played in Utah's past! They did a great job!!
Diamond Fork Middle School orchestra, band, and choir came to perform for our fifth graders. Our fifth graders got to get a sneak peek into what they can participate in next year! They were invited to an instrument “petting zoo” that night to try out different instruments. It was fun seeing our previous Park Panthers in the groups.
