Summer lunches

Aztec Schools will be offering Summer lunches across the community throughout the summer.  Lunches will be served at 11:00-12:00 at Aztec Ruins, Florence Park, AHS, and the Boys and Girls Club. 

 

We will also be serving lunches at Minium park where we will feature a grilled item every day such as hamburgers or hot dogs.  All meals are served to children 18 and under at no charge. 

 

Service will begin on May 28th right after Memorial Day and run through July 31.   

 

The district has been very successful in the past and are looking forward to another great summer of lunches.   We are always looking for new spots to serve the meals and help the community.  If you know of a different location that may be served by us, please let us know. 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 599-4351.

 

From the Principal's Desk

Park Avenue Family,


Thank you for having your students on time and ready for testing during our End of Year Exam testing window. Any students who were absent are working to complete the make up tests. Student scores, most likely, will not be available to you until next school year, so be looking for your student's scores in the fall. 


We have several field trips coming up for our 4th and 5th grade classes! Please reiterate with your child the importance of following all school rules during this exciting time. 


Come One, Come All and attend “A Walk Through the Park” featuring 4th and 5th grade art. This occurs on 5/11 and 5/12 from 12 pm to 4 pm in the Park Avenue cafeteria. Ms. Taylor will be greeting you as you admire your student's magnificent works of art!  


It has been a pleasure working as principal this year and I look forward to many more years to come.  I hope you all have a wonderful, restful summer.

How to change after school plans


 

When you need to change where your child will go after school, please use the PickUp Patrol app from your smartphone or computer.
 

You will no longer need to call the office or send a note to change your child's after school plans. If you did not receive an email or have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the office. 

 

Look in the Homepage Locker for a flyer with more information or visit www.PickUpPatrol.net.

Safety Alert

Please drop off your students on Hartman Street before school.

There have been several incidences where parents are dropping off students on Navajo Street or Park Avenue, in the bus lane, or in the parking lot. This causes congestion with traffic and disrupts the bus flow.  Several students have ran across Navajo unattended, which is a major safety hazard. Many students are crossing the parking lot to get to the cafeteria or the office. This is dangerous as there are often cars coming around the corner that do not see the students. Please, for your students safety, use Hartman Street as the only drop off place.  Thanks!

School Hours:

Mon 8am-1:30pm

Tues - Fri 8am-3pm

******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.

*****Please review the Student Handbook (Left side of this webpage in Homepage Locker).  If you need a hard copy please come by the office and we will provide this to you.

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.

Tiger Time

Tiger Time is Park Avenue’s intervention or enrichment block. This occurs Tuesday-Friday from 2:30pm-3:00pm. Students may rotate to different teachers based on their specific need. During this time teachers are engaging students in targeted activities in Math and ELA.

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!
