Thanks!

We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to our parent volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering please visit us in the office. We’d love your help.

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

Happy New Year, 2018!!

Dear Families,

As we bring in the New Year, we are reminded about the importance of successful student learning.  We appreciate the support you consistently provide to ensure that your student exhibits The Park 6 P’s:

 

Polite: Saying please, thank you, and demonstrate a caring and respectful attitude toward others.

Prepared: Having all materials and work completed when needed.

Present: Both physically here at school and mentally attending during lessons.

Participate: Actively learning through working with peers, sharing ideas, volunteering, and having an inner dialogue about concepts and ideas that are presented.

Pride: Being proud of one’s work and school, which is shown by turning in assignments of high quality, having respect for the school building and the people inside.

Positive Attitude: Knowing that learning can be difficult, but coming to school each day excited to learn and willing to try new things.

Thank you for reinforcing these at home as we reinforce them here at school.  Also, thank you for participating in all of our December Activities.

 

Families donated over 1,000 cans or non-perishable food products during our canned food drive for our community. 

 Mrs. Burnham and Ms. Warren’s classes won the extra recess for collecting the most canned goods.

We had a tree full of scarfs, hats, gloves, jackets, and blankets that were donated to Childhaven.
Thank you students that participated in our December Reading Challenge. Look for more challenges to come this semester. 

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. 

"Spinners" or Fidgets

Keep At Home Please!
Students are beginning to bring the “spinners” or better known as fidgets to school. These are very distracting in a classroom setting. Fidgets are allowed if students have accommodations via an IEP or 504 Plan and specific fidgets must be approved by the IEP or 504 Team. We appreciate you cooperation in keeping these items at home.

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!

School Hours / Attendance / Handbook

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.

Good Bus Behavior

At Park Avenue we are trying to promote good bus behavior. Each day that passes with zero bus write-ups a picture will be added to the bus poster hanging in the cafeteria. When 20 pictures are added all students receive an additional 10 minute recess.

 

Holiday Observance and Waiver/Consent to Disclose Student Information

Please let the school know if you do not  want your child to participate in the following:

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

If you do not  grant permission to the following:

Public Display of student’s name or photo within the school for any Awards or display student’s name or photo outside the school (Newspaper, Yearbook) for Awards or special recognition.
