Pleasant View

Announcements

Newspaper Collection:  On January 30th, Pleasant View faculty, staff and students will have their next Character Circle lesson.  The focus of this lesson is to identify what is required for small groups to work together successfully.  One of the main supplies for the learning activity is newspaper.  If you currently receive the newspaper at home, please consider sending it to school with your child so it can be donated for the activity.  Boxes will be in the lobby for newspaper collection.  Thank you for helping with the January Character Circle learning activity.

World Culture Night Volunteers Needed: Pleasant View is excited for World Culture Night on Friday, April 12th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.!  World Culture Night will celebrate the diverse cultures found in countries throughout the world as well as in Pleasant View.  It is a fun-filled event emphasizing understanding, acceptance, empathy and unity.  To make this event a success, participation is needed to help showcase a country of which you are familiar.   The displays are meant to help students learn about a country’s people and places and may include:

  • Size and location of the country
  • Capital and Country Flag
  • Typical day-to-day lifestyle
  • Cultural traditions
  • Common foods of the country
  • Any interesting facts!

We would also like to showcase dances, games, foods to share, etc. from the different countries.   Both parental and children participation is encouraged, and hopefully the whole family will want to participate in creating the displays, as well as dancing, games and food preparation.   Children will be given a “Passport” as they come that night so that they can get a sticker “stamp” for each country they visit.  At the end of the night, they can show their “stamped” passports and receive a prize.

Please contact Riddhi Satturu at (563) 650-7077 or wdmsurat@gmail.com or Ana Olsen at 563-650-6689 or olsenanach@me.com if you would like to be a part of this fun event!
