On Jun 4, 5, 6 the Parkview community came together and successfully emptied Parkview Jr./Sr. High School and Parkview Elementary School to allow the construction project to continue on schedule. Over 100 members of the Parkview family chipped in with an awesome show of support! Thank you to all that helped in any way!
A special thanks goes out to several community members that provided resources and equipment to help make the move a big success! Thank you to A & H Trucking for allowing the District free use of a semi trailer to store some furniture! Thank you to Blain’s Farm & Fleet and Clay Hammes for free use of a Blain’s Farm & Fleet trailer to store furniture! Thank you to Jim Ponkauskus for the free use of his pick up truck and trailer! Last but not least, thank you to Steve Haberman for the free use of his semi tractor to shuttle the trailers, his skid steer to load and unload trailers and for storing one of the semi trailers on his property for the summer!
Without the help of each and every volunteer, this project could not have succeeded! Thank you to all helpers! You help make Parkview great!
Parkview Junior high was recently the recipient of a grant to purchase a new wrestling mat for the Junior High wrestling team from the JJ Watt Foundation. As posted on the foundation page: “Back to the Mat again – this time for Parkview School District in Orfordville, WI. We’re excited to provide $11,148 for the junior high school’s new wrestling mats. Go Vikings!”
Parkview district superintendent Steve Lutzke applied for the grant. Lutzke said, "The need for a mat exists since the junior high wrestling program will be in the elementary school gym and the varsity mat will be at the new high school. The generosity of JJ Watt and his foundation will allow the Parkview wrestling program to continue to grow. Parkview is very grateful to JJ Watt. His support of kids and athletics serves as a great role model for our youth. We have submitted the order for the wrestling mat and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new wrestling mat!”
“DREAM BIG, WORK HARD” is the motto of the JJ Watt foundation. According to their website:
“Our mission is to provide after-school opportunities for middle-school aged children in the community to become involved in athletics, so that they may learn the character traits of accountability, teamwork, leadership, work ethic, and perseverance, while in a safe and supervised environment with their peers.”
The foundation is a 501C (3) foundation dedicated to helping youth. You may read more about the foundation at http://jjwfoundation.org/
The Parkview School District is extremely grateful to the JJ Watt foundation for its generosity and support of youth.
