Hello, Parkview Families,

We have so many exciting events happening in our school district this is Homecoming Week! Friday will be Orange and Black Day for us and students are encouraged to wear their orange and black clothing with pride. Please leave the hairspray color and face paints at home on Friday so we can keep the distractions low while we continue to learn.

Here is information from Dr. Barnes, principal of Charlotte High School about a downtown event happening this week you may want to participate in...


In lieu of our usual downtown decorating for homecoming this year, we would like to do a sidewalk chalk decorating event. We are targeting Wednesday, 9/27, from 6:30-7:30, and we would like to invite all grade levels to participate. The idea is simple:

  • Each team will get a section of sidewalk and an hour to decorate it.
  • Teams will identify their age groups and school (K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12).
  • We would love to have a few Chamber members and/or Charlotte Rising board members judge.
  • We will announce the winners at the football game, and award prizes.

We thought this was a super simple way to get people downtown, show some school spirit, and take some ownership. It will also wash away in the rain! So, I am letting you know so that you can spread the word in your buildings, and also to invite you to participate as well. One thing we would ask, though, is that the younger kids have parents there to supervise. We will provide the chalk, and we will send you a flier to include in your weekly messages to parents if you are interested. Thanks!

On Friday last week, you received from your child's teacher their recent assessment information using our fall screener. This information will show you where your child is starting in Math and Reading this year. You will receive this information again in January and May. There may also be a separate letter to you from the student support staff indicating if your student should need their services to help their learning. This support is very valuable and as students show their progress, his/her status in the group may change. If you should have any questions about these letters, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher.

Keep reading every night....we had some very good percentages last week with 75% being the goal. Maybe classrooms were in the 90's or even 100%! This Friday, we will be celebrating all of the students who have brought back their reading logs each Friday in the month of September with donuts.

The Fun Run campaign is in full swing....keep those pledges coming. The actual run will be on Friday, October 6th and I'll have a schedule out to you soon.

Remember, there is no school on Monday, October 2nd due to teacher professional development.

It has been a hot few days and we hope a break is coming soon. Thank you for your understanding, encouraging students to bring water bottles and wearing appropriate clothing. Fall will get here soon...KIM

Welcome to the Parkview Elementary School website! My name is Kim Caudell, and I am Parkview’s principal. Whether you are already a member of our school community or are interested in learning more about us as a prospective student, teacher, or parent, we hope that this site will enable you to get a glimpse of the Parkview experience.

Elementary school is a time of transition and change for the developing child. We aim to develop students with the attitudes, skills, and motivation necessary to become successful lifelong learners that are creative, independent, and problem solvers. Furthermore, our staff is dedicated to guiding students towards a positive self-image and a healthy lifestyle. Students gain knowledge from all subjects through areas of educational interaction and apply it to their lives.
