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

Positive Attitude

From the Principal's Desk

Our 4th graders will be taking the Science portion of the Standards-Based Assessment March 6th– March 16th.  This state required online assessment consists of three sections.  Students will take three testing units during this time period.  Students will not be testing everyday but will be testing three times during this window. Your child’s teacher will let you know the specific days and times students will be testing. 


Please ensure your child has plenty of sleep the night before and eats a healthy breakfast prior to testing so they can be ready each day.  We are confident all of our students will have a successful testing experience.


Report cards will be sent home March 16th.  Please review and discuss your child’s progress and celebrate the success they are having in school.    Don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.  The Park Avenue Staff hopes you enjoy your family and friends during our Spring Break, March 19th– 23rd.


Have a wonderful March! 
Lauren Laws, Principal 



Safety Alert

Please drop off your students on Hartman Street before school.

There have been several incidences where parents are dropping off students on Navajo Street or Park Avenue, in the bus lane, or in the parking lot. This causes congestion with traffic and disrupts the bus flow.  Several students have ran across Navajo unattended, which is a major safety hazard. Many students are crossing the parking lot to get to the cafeteria or the office. This is dangerous as there are often cars coming around the corner that do not see the students. Please, for your students safety, use Hartman Street as the only drop off place.  Thanks!

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.

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!

Destination Imagination Teams

Best of luck to our students and Mrs. Snook as they get ready for the Destination Imagination State Tournament in Albuquerque on March 24th.  We are so proud of all your hard work this year!

Thank You

We would like to say thank you to our Park Avenue Student Leadership Team for volunteering their time to do some research on how many sporks Park Avenue uses.  We collected sporks for one full week.  We used and threw away 2,082 sporks.  A whole year of sporks for PA would be about 75,000.  That equals over 61 cubic feet of plastic thrown in the landfill.  Our Student Leadership Team will continue to research and work with Mrs. Burnham and Mrs. Swope as they learn how to help our environment. 

School Hours / Attendance / Handbook

School Hours:

******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.

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.
