Condon's Catch-up!

Principal Condon's Musings, News and All Things Park View


When I greeted our eighth graders on the first day of school last August, I felt a deep responsibility about ensuring each child’s successful conclusion to their tenure at Park View. This was especially important as we navigated the changing mitigation requirements throughout the school year. Two particularly important aspects of our student’s 8th grade year are the traditional graduation ceremony at the high school and the 8th grade “final walk” through the halls to say goodbye to Park View. They loomed over our heads as we debated what we could do because we all wanted to get it right. We felt our students deserved it considering what they had been through. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances of the pandemic we were unable to host both for the past years and instead hosted virtual ceremonies, car parades, and outdoor final walks. And, although I am proud of what we did offer given the situation, we all realized it just wasn’t the same. Thankfully, this school year we were able to host both traditions as we have done for many years. For your pleasure, we are sharing a video that captures the graduation ceremony and the final walk with all of the Park View community. We were able to get it just right. Congratulations again, Park View Class of 2022!

There are so many aspects of our small school district that are unique, but one especially important characteristic is the sense of connection. You can see it when you walk the halls during the school day, you can see it at our community events, and you can certainly see it come across in the shared video. Our staff feels it and we all hope you feel it come across in our teaching, learning, and relationships each year.

What a privilege it is to support this community. I hope you all have a wonderful summer.

In partnership,

Matt Condon
