Positive Attitude

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


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!

Scholastic Book Fair

Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most.


We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair in the library and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her child’s education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair. 


Book Fair Dates:      November 16-20, 2015

Shopping Hours:      Monday-Thursday 8:00-3:30 and Friday 8:00-12:00

Family Reading Night

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!


Park Avenue 5 Star Fundraiser


During November 18th through December 2nd Park Avenue will be involved in a fundraiser in which students are asked to sell items out of a catalog. This is optional and we ask that students only sell to family and friends, due to safety concerns of students selling door to door. We hope to raise money to purchase Leveled Literacy Intervention Tool Kits and fulfill other classroom needs that targets student learning. More information will be coming soon. Many Thanks!!!

From the Health Office...


Remember if your child has a temperature over 100.0 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.

If you are worried about excessive absences and your child is ill the absence can be excused by taking your child to the Doctor and getting a signed note or bring your child into the health office before school and we will take their temperature. If your child has a fever he/she will be excused for the day.

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.

Park Avenue understands extenuating circumstances happen, please call Principal Fernandez if this occurs.

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.


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.
