Future Communication

Park View Families:

We have had a positive start to this school year being in a much more normal schedule, in-person five days per week. Last year, with all of the unknowns and moving from remote only to in person 2-days per week, to in-person 4-days per week there was more information I had to communicate continuously. This year, that need is dwindling so I will be moving to a bi-monthly schedule meaning I will send out the Park View newsletter on the first and third Friday's of the month. The next newsletter will be 9/17, which is the third Friday of September. The Park View PTA will continue to send out weekly newsletters each Tuesday to keep you up-to-date on all PTA school events and activities. I hope this helps ease the information load on all of our families.

Be Seen And Heard!

Park View Panthers participated in the 'Be Seen And Heard' presentations that satisfy Erin's Law - House Bill 6193. This law requires schools to implement an age appropriate sexual assault and abuse awareness and prevention curriculum for grades pre-K through 12. Victor Pacini, a survivor of sexual abuse, author, and motivational speaker presented developmentally appropriate presentations for each grade level. The focus of his presentations are to teach children basic skills to keep them safe from dangerous, or abusive situations. The concepts he covered were:

  • Distinguishing Safe from Unsafe Touch
  • Safety Rules at Home and School
  • Saying "No"
  • Safe/Unsafe Secrets
  • It's not the child's fault if someone touches him/her in unsafe ways
  • Telling a Trusted Adult

All families were sent a message in August regarding this program along with a 20 minute informational video called 'Be Seen And Heard' 2.0. There is a booklet that students can share with you that cover the topics from the presentation. You can download that booklet at The booklet will help to reinforce this important information and students can color in the pictures. I encourage all parents to download the book and review the information with your child(ren).
