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

SAFETY FIRST

Please help keep our campus safe for students, staff and visitors by not using the parking lot as a student drop off area.  We ask that all students be dropped off and picked up on Hartman Place. Your assistance is greatly       appreciated!

From the Principal's Desk

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I think it’s important to celebrate all of the wonderful things happening at Park Avenue!  Our students have continued to show great growth on our Common Formative Assessments and Interim Exams.  Great Job 4th Grade for completing the Science SBA and working right through any glitches.  Thank you for your support in raising funds for our school during our recent fundraiser! 

 

 

Testing

In the month ahead, students will be taking the PARCC exam for English Language Arts and Math.  This is crucial for the educational process as we take time to gather a snapshot assessment of how well our students are doing.  Results are used as an instructional tool for our teachers to help us celebrate our students' successes and strengthen our areas of weaknesses.  Please be sure that your child gets plenty of rest and has a healthy breakfast or enjoys breakfast here at school.  Look for information to come from your child’s teacher regarding testing schedule.

 

 

Pre-Registration

I can’t believe it’s that time of year!  Be on the lookout for pre-registration packets.  They will be going home soon!

 

 

Interim Testing

Interim Testing: At the end of every quarter your child takes an Interim test for Math and Reading. These computerized tests are rigorous and the purpose of these tests are to identify areas of academic improvement or enrichment that each students needs. Teachers analyze their student data and meet with the Principal and the Assistant Principal to discuss the next step that will occur to meet student deficits. If you have any questions concerning your students performance on these tests your child’s teacher will go over this information with you during Parent Teacher Conferences at the end of January.

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, Ms. Fernandez.

Much Thanks!!

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:

  • Stick to a schedule. Maintain routines.
  • Schedule carefully. Make appointments during non-school hours.
  • Seek help when needed. If you family struggles with transportation, childcare or other issues, talk with school staff.

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 15 minute recess.
