Parents' Night Out Trivia Night and Silent Auction>
A HUGE heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended Parents' Night Out Trivia Night and Silent Auction. The event went off without a hitch and was a smashing success due to our amazing parents, teachers, and staff.
Thank you as well to all our volunteers. Volunteers are essential to any successful event and Parents' Night Out was no exception. Our sincerest thanks to every, single person who volunteered for our event before, during, and after. We greatly appreciate your time, energy, and willingness to lend a hand.
Thank you to all the parents who participated in our silent auction. We sold over 100 auction packages, including school experiences, class t-shirts and platters, and appreciate the generosity of all our parents when bidding on our auction packages. Thank you as well to our generous donors. Your dedication to Park View and our Parents' Night Out is greatly appreciated.
Congratulations to the Gladiator table for winning the trivia contest! It was a tough competition and you should be proud of your big win. Honorable mention to the Indiana Jones and Back to the Future tables who tied for second place.
We'd also like to thank all the families who participated in the 50/50 Raffle. During the event, the raffle total reached $3,270.00! and we could not have reached that goal without the help of our parent body.
Congratulations to Lisa Abate our 50/50 Raffle winner.
Last but certainly not least, thank you to Avani Mehta and Autumn Usalis for Co-Chairing Parents' Night Out. The time and dedication you devoted to this event was apparent in every detail and we cannot thank you enough for everything you did to ensure a successful event.

Box Tops for Education: Spring Box Tops Drive!
We collected Box Tops for the second time this school year in February and collected almost 5,900 Box Tops, bringing our year total to almost 11,500 Box Tops thus far!
Our goal this year is to collect 20,000 Box Tops.
Our goal is that each classroom will collect 1,000 Box Tops this school year. Once they do, every student will earn a 25 cent coupon to the School Store. We have had 3 classrooms reach this goal already. Great Job!
- Mrs. Stavros 3rd grade class (1,281)
- Mrs. Tomasek's 4th grade class (1,113)
- Mrs. Roberts' 4th grade class (1,107)
This is how YOU can help:
1. FIND the pink Box Tops logo on participating products when you shop
2. CLIP the Box Tops and save them
3. SEND your Box Tops with your child to the classroom. All our teachers have a collection bin.
