On January 19, Parkview Junior Academy held an event, The Great Shake, designed to heighten awareness in students of the importance of social skills and what good skills look like. Guests from the community simulated various social situations for students to experience. Then each student did a quick self-evaluation and the guest rated the student's performance so the two could compare notes and discuss areas of strength and weakness. Four students who were identified as having done an outstanding job in one or more of the simulations re-enacted the role play in an assembly for the whole school. Student leaders thanked guests with a small gift and served beverages. We are most grateful for the time and energy invested by our guests and proud of our students for working to improve their social graces.
