A Night At Hogwart's
Our fourth annual  “A Night At Hogwart’s” was held at Parkview Elementary on October 21, 2016.  The tradition lives on with the boy who didn’t die!  Although, the entire activity centers around the popular Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling it is a fun evening even if you have not read the books or seen the movies.  We try to create activities that emphasize the magical world of Harry Potter, and also teach science concepts and encourage literacy.  We love having the Public Library represent our literacy corner and the 4H extension office staff did one of their STEM activities. 
The Parkview staff, and a few community members are what make the evening possible.  We like to say the kids leave school Thursday afternoon and it is just Parkview.  They come back Friday night and the entire school has been transformed into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Once again Monday morning it is all back to being Parkview Elementary.  That’s what makes it so magical.  However, that comes with a cost, many hours are spent by the staff to make the transformation from Parkview to Hogwarts. 
Although, we kept our popular activities such as the sorting hat, Honeydukes Candy Shop and the Butterbeer, this year we added a few new shops and items in Diagon Alley.  Our Quiddich game was expanded and we offered new classes.  One of the highlights was the 140lb python that was featured in the Forbidden Forest!   
We hope we can continue to offer this fun filled evening that focuses on literacy and science.  We feel like it is a great connection between school and our community. 
Junior/Senior High School Students Demonstrate Musical Talents
Tuesday night the High School Choir, 6th Grade Band, and the 7th-12th Grade Band came together to entertain parents and community members alike for their Fall Concert.
The 6th Grade Band, which is made up of 25 students, featured a wide variety of instruments including flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, french horns, trombones, baritones and percussion.  They played a wide-range of music including Go for Excellence, Go Big Green, and the Dragon Dance.
The High School Band, which is made up of 12 students played Winchester Chronicles before joining the 7th and 8th grade band students as the combined group of 24 students played selections including John Williams:  Move Adventures, Old Time Rock & Roll, and Fanfare and Jubilee.    
The Choir consisted of 6 students from the high school. They also provided a wide variety of music including Circle of Life, With One Look, Autumn, and hits from the Beatles.
The Band and Choir Concert was presented by Rangely Junior/Senior High School music instructor Carol Morton and was deemed a wonderful experience by all in attendance.
RJSHS Hosts Back to School Night
Rangely students and parents had a great time preparing for the start of a new school year at the Rangely Junior/Senior High School “Back to School Night” on August 11th. The evening started with distributing student’s schedules and lockers, allowing students time to practice those locker combinations before the first day. Families also had the opportunity to check out the Athelitcs and Activities Fair where they were able to learn about the many extra-cirricular options available as well as visit with coaches and sponsors.  The excitement was followed by a brief welcome in the auditorium where RJSHS Principal Dr. Bryant introduced new staff members and Vice-Principal Mr. Mergelman spoke again about activities and athletics.  School Secretary Mrs. Green gave a brief presentation on how to use PowerSchool, which allows parents access to their student’s grades and attendance records. Following the assembly parents and students were able to visit classrooms and get to know the teachers. As always, parents are a huge part of the RJSHS learning community, and they, along with staff, are anticipating a great 2016-2017 school year.

Back-to-School Popsicle Party
On Tuesday evening, August 9, 6:00-7:00 p.m., our Preschool through 5th Grade faculty and staff hosted our first annual Back-to-School Popsicle Party out front of Parkview Elementary School for parents and children to meet their teachers for the upcoming school year.  Our school district transportation department was also on hand to confirm the bus schedules for students who ride buses to and from Parkview and the EEC.  Parents of incoming kindergarten children received our Full-Day Kindergarten Information pack.  Parents and students also found out the date and time of their child’s benchmark DIBELS testing scheduled for Monday-Tuesday, August 15-16.  Parents and students will be able to see their classroom at that time and bring their school supplies as well.  The first full day of school is on Wednesday, August 17th.
New Dance Dress Code
The Board of Education has provided clarification on what is appropriate attire for dances.  This relaxes portions of the school dress code policy for dances and provides guidance for students.  As always, the Principal has the final say at the dance.
