Talent Show: The Park View Talent Show offers another opportunity for you to get involved! We are in need of a Chair to plan and coordinate with assistance from Mrs. Peterson, as needed. Participation has been high in recent years, and it is suggested that this event be Co-Chaired. The Talent Show will be held in May, date TBD.
In addition to Chair Volunteer Opportunities, we are also in need of volunteers to work our upcoming events. Please let us know of your availability by completing a PTC Volunteer Sign-Up Form, and return the form via your child's backpack to "PTC Volunteers". You may also contact Nikki Dawson, firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or for additional information.
Amazon Smiles: The PTC would also like to announce our school participation in AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile using the Park View PTC unique link, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. Please take advantage of this charitable opportunity!

- 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 Megan Rafferty-Flatter (email@example.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.
Backpack Information: District 87 (Glenbard South High School) and other outside organizations are able to publish information in the District 89 backpack information to let parents know about programs and upcoming events. For your convenience, we have included a link to the backpack information 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.
