Principal's Message

Building the Future Child by Child

Mr. Bobby Winningham, Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Park View Elementary School. The Park View Community of teachers and staff strives to provide our students with a tradition of caring and learning. I believe strongly that Elementary School is a community of learners committed to sharing responsibility for continuous, positive growth along all the developmental pathways. To facilitate this vision, we are committed to creating the conditions for learning which stimulate and support all members of our learning community to develop and expand their intellectual and creative horizons. We challenge one another to realize our potential, to appreciate and contribute to our community, and to develop a passion for life-long learning. It is apparent that through the collaborative efforts of our staff and parents, we have created a wonderful place for our students to grow intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.

During the elementary school years, parents are an integral part of our student's learning experience. The dedication to our learning community continues to support our efforts. Even though students, parents and staff may change, Park View’s traditions remain as we anticipate the yearly production of the Nutcracker, the Panda Run, the P T O Mega Party, and other special events we have through out the year. These programs supplement our children's school experience. They enhance classroom academics and provide students an opportunity to in which they may explore and present their creative spirit, while learning valuable skills of dedication and teamwork that ultimately result in a positive experience of standing before you as parents and their community in an awe-inspiring performance of a lifetime. And students actually do look forward to singing on stage in front of family, friends and community members

Together we are educating the whole child. Continue to support your children in nurturing ways. Create quality time at home or on trips where your child has your full attention. Set the patterns of positive choices and behaviors and maintain a predictable structure at home. Be aware that there are learning opportunities everywhere and take advantage of each and every moment and enjoy your children. Thank you for the trust and confidence you place in the staff here at Park View. We are honored that you have chosen to share your children’s lives with us. Please feel free to some visit with us, and become involved in your child’s classroom education to whatever extent you be able.

Again, welcome to the greatest Elementary School in the county. I look forward to seeing you around our school.

With warmest Regards,

Bobby Winningham (aka Papa Panda Bear)
