Positive Attitude

Tiger Time


Tiger Time is Park Avenue’s intervention or enrichment block. This occurs Tuesday-Friday from 2:30pm-3:00pm. Students may rotate to different teachers based on their specific need. During this time teachers are engaging students in targeted activities in Math and ELA. Tiger Time will begin Tuesday, September 8th. If you wish to observe classroom activities during this time please stop by the office and get a badge before entering the building.


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

Communication between home and school is extremely critical towards providing an effective instructional environment for our children.  As we prepare for Parent-Teacher Conferences on October 26th and 27th, we look forward to your insights regarding your child’s education and input about the school year. As a parent, you provide valuable information for your child’s classroom teacher so they are better able to address your child’s needs. Our teachers truly appreciate your time and support that you give to your child in his/her education while at home.


We encourage student led conferences and therefore would encourage you to bring your child as they will be prepared to share their data and work so far from this school year.


Please remember that Thursday, October 26th is early release and Friday, October 27th there is no school.  Be on the lookout for conference information coming home with your child soon. We look forward to seeing you! 

Lauren Laws, Principal




"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.

I appreciate you cooperation in keeping these items at home.


 Park Avenue Elementary School Mission

Take a look at Park Avenue

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.
