From the Principal's Desk

Happy Holidays,

           It has truly been my pleasure working as Principal of Park Avenue Elementary. It is hard to believe we have almost completed our first semester.  During this time I have observed staff and students working diligently to meet targeted academic standards. The journey has been positive, sprinkled with hard work and dedication of the students, staff, and parents. Thank you parents for supporting your children and our staff!  Thank you students for  working so hard on your academics and practicing the Park  6 P’s each and every day!! Thank you staff for your dedication to student learning!!  

 

As we say here at Park, “It’s a Good Day to Make It a Great Day!” 

 

I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Break!!

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!

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!

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.
