The Season for Giving Back!




Students return to school on Wednesday, January 7, 2015


The school-wide spelling bee was held on Monday, December 8 in the cafeteria. This was the spelling bee where winners from the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade competed to determine who will compete in the divisional spelling bee. 

Emily Daniel’s (center) won the school-wide bee, with Sanaa Easter coming in second, and Niya Scott third.


Beta Club – Holiday Bazaar


The Park View Middle Beta Club once again participated in the Holiday Bazaar activities on November 15 and 16. Beta students joined the Friends of the R. T. Arnold Library to work at their concession stand during the Bazaar. This has been an ongoing event for the Beta Club. The students thoroughly enjoy interacting with the community each year.


     Ms. Patton’s Spanish classes studied El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)




PVM Jr. Beta Club Induction 

Sixty-two new Park View Middle School Junior Beta Club members were inducted on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 in the PVM gymnasium. The induction ceremony was held to honor those students in seventh and eighth grade who have achieved high standards in both academics and moral character. These students must maintain a grade point average of 3.5 or better, demonstrate good character, and be willing to participate in community service activities. We are very proud of these young ladies and gentlemen. They set an excellent example for others at Park View Middle and our community.

Parent ID:

Parents please provide a photo ID not only when signing out your student but also for when you may need to see them in the office for a brief moment or for when you would like to join them for lunch.  Your student’s safety is very important to us and we want to make sure only those individuals who are listed on the student’s emergency card may contact the student during school hours.  Thank you.


Principal’s Corner 


Mr. Mark L. Mabey - Principal …… I recently sent out a Instant Alert about brochures and surveys on various educational matters. I again want to reiterate that importance of sharing your opinion. EVERY OPINION MATTERS! If we are to provide the best educational experience for the children of this community, we must share our opinions. Not only on these matters but in all areas. Our Country was founded on the principle that each person shall have a voice. We do not always have to agree on all matters but we must be able to share and hear each others opinions. So, I encourage you to take the time to read the brochures (first one will come home on Tuesday, 12/9) and respond to the survey. Become an Agent of Change for our children.
