Student Drop-Off and Pick-ups is on Hartman Place

When dropping off or picking up your child on Hartman St. please completely pull over to the curb so traffic can continue to flow. Please do not stop on the crosswalk, this endangers our students. Students are only to cross with the crossing guard on duty. Please follow the school zone speed limit.

Thank you

From the Principal's Desk

Park Avenue Families,

 

We appreciate each of you attending your child’s Parent Teacher Conference.  It was wonderful to hear the positive comments concerning your child’s teacher and the progress your child has made this school year. 

As we move into the second semester of your child’s 4th or 5th grade year, Park Avenue staff has agreed on several targeted areas that will be focused on to assist in improving student achievement.

Goals:

  • Teacher Action Plans will be created based on student Interim assessments which occur every quarter in Math and ELA.  These actions plans focus on re-teaching strategies targeted to specific students who are struggling or excelling in Math or Language Arts concepts.  This will occur in the classroom.
  • Common Formative Assessments will be given and student work will be analyzed to create Tiger Time groups in which teachers can intervene on specific skills students need.  This is an important time from 2:30-3:00 Tuesday through Friday. 
  • Daily Learning Objectives are posted and communicated with your child each lesson.  Ask your child about what they learned each day in class.  They should be able to communicate with you the learning taking place.

 

The second semester goals or 90 Day Plan is posted in the homepage locker. 

 

Thank you for all you do!

Interim Testing

At the end of each quarter your child takes an Interim Assessment for Math and English Language Arts (ELA).  These computerized assessments are rigorous and the purpose of these tests are to identify areas of academic improvement or enrichment that each student needs. 

 

Teachers analyze their student data and meet with the Administration to discuss next step actions that will occur to meet student deficits.  If you have any questions concerning your students performance on these assessments please contact your child’s teacher. Teachers will be going over this information with you at Parent Teacher Conferences at the end of this month.

Every Day Counts!


Park Avenue continues to promote the value of learning! Research shows that attendance is one of the most important factors in school success. Our day begins promptly at 8:00 and ends at 3:00pm. Absences and tardiness interrupt the educational process in the classroom. If a student is tardy ten minutes daily, 30 hours of instruction is missed over the course of a school year. Students can copy notes or make up an assignment, but they can never get back what's most important: the discussions, the questions, the explanations by the teacher, and the thinking that makes learning come alive!

We at Park Avenue understand that at times life gets in the way; family emergencies and health maladies never wait until Saturday. Our truancy policy wants to ensure that learning continues when students have to miss school. Please notify our school when your child is absent and arrange for make-up work to be picked up and then completed by your child. We continue to have fewer students absent each month because we all work together!

******Attendance is critical to ensuring your child understands the concepts necessary to be successful in school. Please call the office at 334-9469 if your child will be absent.

From the Health Office

Remember if your child has temperature over 100 or is vomiting please keep your child home. Due to so many illnesses going around, we are requiring students to be fever/vomit free for 24 hours before returning to school if they are ill. Tylenol or Motrin can reduce the fever but the child is still ill even with these administered.

Each semester parents can call/email and excuse their child for  five times without a Doctor’s note after this please attain a Doctor’s note to ensure the child’s absence is excused. In extenuating circumstances please call and talk with the Principal, Mrs. Laws.

Holiday Observance and Waiver/Consent to Disclose Student Information

Birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter or Valentine’s Day
