From the Principal's Desk

Dear Park Avenue Families,

 

   Communication between home and school is extremely critical towards providing an effective
instructional environment for our children. As we prepare for Parent-Teacher Conferences on
October 25th and 26th, we look forward to your insights regarding your child’s education and
input about the school year. As a parent, you provide valuable information for your child’s
classroom teacher so they are better able to address your child’s needs. Our teachers truly
appreciate your time and support that you give to your child in his/her education while at
home.
   

   We encourage student led conferences and therefore would encourage you to bring your child
as they will be prepared to share their data and work so far from this school year.

 

   Please remember that Thursday, October 25th is early release and Friday, October 26th there is
no school. Be on the lookout for conference information coming home with your child soon.
We look forward to seeing you!

 

Sincerely,

 

Lauren Laws

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!

Take a look at Park Avenue

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!

*****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.
