Vadonna Winterholter is amazing to watch as she forms our students into musically talented kids. I have observed her help children who don’t seem to have musical talent into kids who know what it’s all about. From day one of my administration, she was in the forefront as an extremely valuable team player in making sure that playground and recess duties were assigned and safety issues were addressed proactively. She continually seeks to self-improve by going to conferences that will give her the newest type of music training, which will help our remotely-located students be a part of the music world. She has organized six concerts for our parents, all of which amazed the community that our little ones could do so well. She has been “instrumental” in providing musical talent for our PRIDE assemblies, as well as warming everyone’s patriotic heart as she played the Star Spangled Banner with her trumpet. She volunteers every minute of her time to help students who strongly desire to play their instruments better. She is highly esteemed and valued at Parkview Elementary.
Musician, visual artist and educator Michael Stanwood introduced Parkview Elementary School students to a variety of ethnic instruments on April 15 in an assembly program sponsored by the school’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
