Volunteer Spotlight

Chairpersons Needed: The PTC hopes you enjoyed many of the gatherings we had throughout the school year. Did you attend the Book Fair? Family Fitness Night? Panther Pride Fest? Family Dinner Night? Movie Night? Those were just a few of our fun nights here at Park View. All the PTC events are run by Parent Volunteers. Without great parents like you, none of these events would be possible.

The PTC would like to thank all the volunteers who have chaired an event at Park View. We thank you for all your time and dedication to making all our school events a huge success!

Next year we have many families who will be leaving Park View and moving onto Glen Crest. We need you!! Please take a moment to visit our Committees tab and take a look at all that Park View offers. It gives a brief description of everything you can be a part of. Grab a friend if you need a co-leader and consider giving an event your time!

Please email Rhonda Nevious or Nia Coluzzi-Esposito at vicepresident@parkviewptc.org if you have any questions! We would love to hear from you!

Send in your items to Mrs. Walsh via your child's backpack and please wash prior to sending them in. Thank You!

Park View Families in Need: At Park View School and other District 89 schools, there are many families in need. The Park View PTC would like to highlight how you can assist these families:

  • Community Outreach: The Park View School social worker, Erin Walsh, works closely with many families in need. Occasionally, she will identify a specific need and will send an email to a distribution list of people who might be able to donate the item in need (coats, shoes, boots, jackets, etc.). If you are interested in joining this distribution list, please email Mimi Cunningham (mimc8@yahoo.com) or Megan Rafferty-Flatter (raffs125@yahoo.com).

CCSD89 Strategic Plan: The Strategic Planning Committee has developed a 3-5 year strategic plan for the District which was presented to and approved by the School Board over the summer. The presentation material is available at https://v3.boardbook.org/Public/PublicItemDownload.aspx?ik=34330268.

E-Backpack: District 87 (Glenbard South High School) and other outside organizations are able to publish information in the District 89 e-backpack to let parents know about programs and upcoming events. For your convenience, we have included a link to the e-backpack in our Quick Links menu above.

Facebook Community Pages: If you use Facebook, there are a couple community pages that might interest you. Just search for the "Park View & Glen Crest Parents Forum" or the "SoRo - Glen Ellyn, IL" pages.
