ACT released the ACT scores for the Class of 2015 and the Parkview graduates scored well. The composite score for the Parkview Class of 2015 was 22.1. This score matched the State average for WI and was the highest score for a Parkview graduating class dating back prior to 2006.
Wisconsin as a state had the second highest average ACT score in the country so the fact that Parkview matched the State average reflects positive results by students and their teachers.
Over the past several years the Parkview teachers and administration have used the ACT test results to determine where more intensive instruction is needed and coursework has been revised to address these areas. The school district also provides a low cost ACT prep class, taught by Mr. Schullo and former Parkview teacher- Nancy Nettesheim, to students that want to increase their knowledge prior to taking the test. Many of our students have completed the prep class and found it to be beneficial.
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.
