Amazing News from our Parkview Robotics Team
As many of you may know, the Parkview Robotics team came in first place at our regional competition.  We were all so excited for the team and their growth and learning in this new area.  Last week our intermediate team competed at the Provincial competitions held in Waterloo.  Not only did they 45544_mod_gyroboy_01_Leftdemonstrate a growth mindset they showed team spirit, collaboration, problem solving and excellent communication.  All the skill needed to be a 21st century modern learner.  If that was not impressive enough, they dominated and took home the title of 2nd place among 18 teams many of which are veterans in this area.
Congratulations to Parkview’s 1st Robotics Team!

Parkview P.S. 7th Annual Diversity Day Event
Diversity Day is intended to educate our students while celebrating the diverse identities and cultures in our school and in the greater community. Last year’s event was a great success which brought together people of multiple cultures under one roof. Through engaging and interactive pavilions, several identities were showcased through examples of dress, music, dance, visual arts, and various exciting, Diversityeducational activities. The Parkview community again eagerly anticipates exploring aspects of the people who make Canada the wonderful place it is. At the beginning of May, we look forward to enjoying learning about the people of our world at Diversity Day!

Outdoor Education trip to Varley Gallery
As a result of a Ministry initiative to promote quality programming in Outdoor Education, Parkview is grateful to be using grant funding to have Grades 3 – 8 students visit neighbouring Varley Gallery in June. The planned two hour morning program for all our groups will include a guided one hour gallery tour as well as offer students age appropriate instruction in outdoor painting/sketching at Too Good Pond. This is a unique opportunity to combine exposure to an important art-paint-colorfulheritage site in Unionville with Outdoor Education. We are fortunate to be able to walk to the venue and engage students in art appreciation and inquiry as well as expose them to quality art instruction as they try their hand at their own pieces. Who knows, the next Group of Seven ‘member’ could be in our midst?!
