Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r Park View Elementary School Principal Shanna Stirland expressed her appreciation to the Nebo School Board of Education in a board meeting recently as well as what an honor it is to have served as principal of Park View for the past three years. She loves working with supportive parents, awesome students and hardworking teachers – teachers who are always looking to improve instructional strategies in order to help students become successful. This is just a snippet of the wonderful things happening at Park View:

Amber Gull, a third-grade teacher at Park View, spoke about the third grade integrating technology in their classrooms. This technology is making it possible for students to use Chromebooks and work on interactive writing assignments. The students are researching the biomes of their choice and creating miniature biomes out of shoe boxes. Then the students created Adobe Spark videos to feature their biomes.

School Community Council chair Emily Rigby presented Park View’s theme for this year: Bee Brave. The SCC chaperoned mini field trips within the school and watched students tutored in Nebo Plus, a reading intervention program. Nebo Plus is funded through Trustlands money. Teachers are also using the Blast Phonics program to help young grade students become successful readers. The SCC helped the school with safer pickup and drop-off areas for students.

The board of education was delighted to hear from the Park View choir students. Diana Hunt directs the choir and is a parent volunteer. Stirland said, “Diana unselfishly donates her time to lead choirs at three elementary schools: Park View, Spring Lake and Wilson. It is a blessing to have her at Park View.”

The Park View choir sang two numbers. The first was “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban in honor of the faculty, staff and all those in Nebo School District that help raise students “up to be all that they can be.” Second, the students sang “Try Everything” from the movie “Zootopia.” This is the school’s theme song. These lyrics express the importance of trying everything, even when it is hard – just keep trying.
