Upcoming Events

* Items in red are newly added or updated.

Movie Night: Trolls will be shown at the next movie night on Friday April 28 from 6:30 PM - 8:15 PM. See the flyer for more details.

March Against Hunger: Park View has partnered with the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry to help end hunger in our community. The Food Pantry relies solely on donations to stock their shelves and keep costs down, and Park View will be helping these efforts by collecting food donations throughout the month of March. The classroom that brings in the MOST items will win a pizza party! Please refer to this list for the pantry's most needed items. Thank you for your support of this amazing cause!

Boosterthon: Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Park View Boosterthon Glow Run! It’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, March 14th. Then families will have time to get pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Glow Run on Thursday, March 23rd. With our big goal to raise funds for Maker Space-Park View’s own technology & engineering center with robots! We also plan to roll out a brand new FREE venue next year for all Park View families to enjoy! We asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, BACKYARD BOX OFFICE! It’s a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five “Character Acts” and make a difference in our community.

Donations will go toward Park View’s Maker Space & a brand new family event next year and to the entire 9-day experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, Jimmy John’s will be passing out little sub snacks after the run to all of the students at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!

Fundraising Spotlight

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!

For more information on PTC Fundraising, visit our Fundraising page

Music Booster Car Wash: It's time for the annual spring Music Booster Car Wash! This event will take place on Saturday, May 6th from 9:30a-1:30p at Park View School. Music students are selling advance tickets for $5 apiece but car wash tickets can also be bought on site.

To make this event work, we need YOU to help us out! For an hour or two or more, please follow this link to SIGN UP to help out with the car wash on May 6th. Cliche but true, many hands make light work! Middle school youth are welcome to help as well but must come with at least one adult.

This is a fun, casual, easy event that helps get out our message to the community about the importance of music education in our schools. Please join us and be a part of it!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jennifer Sellers at squirrelsister@hotmail.com or 630-790-3750.

Community Spotlight

Glenbard Parent Series: Join other parents, students and administrators to learn about issues facing our youth today. The Glenbard Parent Series engages top experts, parents and school staff to become proactive and informed in pursuit of the strengthening our communities. Programs are free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.glenbardgps.org.

Kindergarten Readiness: Is your child or someone you know preparing for Kindergarten? These Kindergarten Readiness guidelines will provide you with helpful direction.

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 Dawn Cassata (dawncassata@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.

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.
