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 Elementary School has received School of Distinction designation for math and PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports). Additionally the school has received School of Merit designation for reading. These honors come from the Wisconsin Response to Intervention (RTI) Center. The Wisconsin RtI Center is funded by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to provide statewide training and technical assistance to help create responsive schools and districts. Response to Intervention (RtI) is a system-wide proactive framework that enables schools to be more effective and responsive to students by implementing multi-level systems of support in their academic areas.
Parkview was one of twenty five schools recognized as a school of distinction in academics; one of only nine whom were recognized as schools of distinction for math. As a School of Distinction, Parkview Elementary will receive a banner and recognition at the annual PBIS Leadership Conference in August.
Parkview was one of one hundred and fifty-seven schools recognized as a school of distinction in PBIS. PBIS is a system-wide proactive framework that enables schools to be more effective and responsive to student social-emotional needs by implementing a multi-level system of support for behavior (description provided by RTI Center). The school will also get a banner for this honor at the August PBIS Leadership Conference.
Schools of Merit have implemented elements of the Wisconsin RTI framework with integrity. Parkview was one of forty schools statewide receiving a School of Merit award in reading. According to Karen Strandt Conroy, Parkview Elementary School principal, the goal of the staff for next year is to achieve school of distinction honors in all three categories, math, reading and PBIS.
The school of distinction award is given to schools who have sustained the elements required for at least two years. To do so the school looks at data for different groups and subgroups of students and examines how each group is doing in the subject areas of math and reading. Parkview has been participating in the RTI program for a number of years. School psychologist Jaime Harris helped the school become more involved by implementing a way to track the data more easily.
