IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING - Motivational Video

Impossible means I'm-Possible

Are You Obsessed? Are You Relentless? Do you believe in yourself? What's your reason? What fuels you?


As we finish our mClass assessment and have complete the 1st month of school. We will complete our Data Walls next week. It's time to start pushing each other and our students.


Our Goals:


  1. Increase student performance in math from 79% to 85% proficiency as measured on EOG and from 78.8% to 85% Composite on K-2 assessments with a growth of 7% or more; and a 10% or less discrepancy between subgroup performances.
  2. Increase student performance in reading from 67.6% to 80% proficiency as measured on EOG and from 70% to 80% Composite on K-2 assessments. And growth to 30% or more; and a 10% or less discrepancy between subgroup performances.
  3. Increase K-3 student writing assessment performance while having 88% or more of Park View students will be proficient in writing.



What are WE going to do to make sure we accomplish our GOALS?

IMPOSSIBLE is just a BIG WORD

Park View is the Best School in NC

I am proud to call myself a Park View Patriot. Read the letter below because this is what makes us special, this is what we do!


Letter from a Parent


I am writing to let you know that your school and specifically Mrs.*** and Mrs. ***** have completely changed our lives!! We are about 4 weeks in and I can already see such a huge difference in our child!!! We could never really get him to open up and talk about school. Now he tells us about his day and actually insisted that we bring cupcakes for his friends in class. He even went so far as to get approval from Mrs. **** himself and learned of one kid’s red dye allergy and that he should only get vanilla or chocolate which he promptly reported back to me!

He is reading like a champ and asks for us to throw out random math problems while we are driving in the car. He can’t wait to show us his most recent treasure box score and is more confident and overall just happier!! He takes pride in the school and can’t wait to show us around…I think he showed his dad where each of the nearby water fountains were!! Aftercare is going really well also!! He loves it!

I just wanted to provide you with this feedback about our overall experience as well as the teacher’s impact on our son!

It just felt different upon arriving at Parkview…the vibe was warmer and it felt more like “home”. He is super proud to be a part of your school.

Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to making a difference in our child’s (and our) life!!
