Principal’s Message

Welcome to Parkview Elementary School, home of the Panthers where our school motto is: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe.
 

My name is Susan Kind and I am Parkview's new Principal.  It is truly a privilege to serve this outstanding teaching and learning community and to be following in the footsteps of such stellar administrators.  I look forward to working with the dynamic staff, dedicated parents, involved community, and most of all students to continue building upon our culture of equity, inclusivity, and academic excellence.  I am committed to supporting our teachers so that they may provide your child with rigorous and engaging instruction and I am delighted to be working with your children as they discover the wonders of learning and strive to reach their potential.

Our exceptional staff is committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment in their classroom and throughout the school campus.  Parkview models the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports system (PBIS) where students are taught what it looks like and sounds like to be PAWsitively Respectful, Responsible, and Safe in the classroom, the cafeteria, the playground, and all other important areas of the school.

At Parkview students engage in authentic and meaningful learning experiences. Through the core subject areas of math, language arts, science and social studies, students explore the world around them while developing the creative, communicative, collaborative, and critical thinking skills required to be successful in college, career, and citizenship. Parkview students enjoy screen time to access programs such as Reading A to Z (RAZ Kids) and i-Ready.  In addition Parkview provides English Language Learner Support, Sobrato Early Academic Language (SEAL) curriculum for our kindergarten through third grade students, Project Based Learning (PBL) units of study for our upper grade students, special education services for individualized learning plans, Response to Intervention support, a Gifted and Talented program, leadership and student council opportunities and many other programs and activities.

We are honored to have the opportunity to teach your child and to get to know you.  This website serves as an informational tool.  In addition to this website, Parkview families are sent a weekly phone message on Sunday evening with highlights of the upcoming week as well as a printed monthly newsletter.  Should you need any information or have questions, please call our incredible front office staff at (408) 226-4655 or feel free to email me at skind@ogsd.net.
