Tiger Time, which is our intervention time, will be starting soon. This is where teachers will instruct smaller groups of students in order to meet any academic needs. The teachers are excited to start, but we also need your help. In order to make this successful, we need parents to keep students in school all day. Tiger Time for both grades is Tuesday—Friday at various times depending on your child’s team. One suggestion for keeping students in school is to schedule appointments on Monday afternoons since that is our Early Release day. Please contact your child’s teacher or Principal Fernandez with any questions surrounding our intervention time.
At Park Avenue we LOVE having parents who volunteer. If this is something you can do, please visit with your child’s classroom teacher to discuss the days and times that are best with the classroom schedule. To volunteer, you must complete the proper volunteer paperwork to become approved through the district office. While we enjoy seeing siblings at Park, this can be very distracting to the learning taking place in the classroom. We ask that you have childcare for your other children if you will be volunteering. Please remember to stop by the office and get a Visitor’s Pass before you venture out on campus. THANKS!
Is doing amazing science activities that train teachers to inspire students!

Dates to Remember
From the Health Office...
As the weather warms, please take into consideration a few things as children go outside to play.
* Safety, safety, safety. Make sure your little ones are wearing the proper safety equipment for the activity. It is now a law in the state of NM that any child under the age of 18 must have a helmet on while riding a bike, skateboard, roller skates, etc.
* Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. Not only are sunburns painful, they may lead to skin problems down the road.
* Hydration, hydration, hydration. Little (as well as big) bodies need water to survive. Due to our desert like summers with low humidity, we lose a great deal of water through breathing and evaporation (not sweating) through our skin in addition to any visible sweating.
Reminder… If your child needs to take ANY medication (other than those listed on the health form completed at the time of registration), the health office requires a medication authorization form to be completed. For your convenience, there are two ways to obtain the medication authorization form. The first is to stop by the health office and pick up a copy. The second is to go to the Park Ave. website, http://www.prideatpark.com, go to either “News from the Health Office” or to my webpage listed under the “Staff” tab. I have uploaded the form to both locations. A new form is needed for each school year.
ALL medications must be picked up from the health office on or before the last day of school. Any medications left at the school will be destroyed.
If your child is delinquent on immunizations, those MUST be current at registration for the next school year or your child will not be allowed to register.
As always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us.
Thank you from the Health Office

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.
******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.

School success depends on excellent attendance
For your child to get the most out of school, they need to be there-- and on time! Research shows that missing 10 percent or more of school days hurts success. To prevent absenteeism:
