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!

Park Avenue Meet and Greet!!!

The staff at Park Avenue School would like to invite you to our annual “Meet and Greet” student/parent orientation day. It will be held from 8:00a.m.to 3:00 p.m. on Monday, August 17th. What is it? On the 17th, parents will bring their children to Park anytime during the day to meet their teacher, establish where their desk will be, be given the rules and expectations of the classroom, discuss their child’s needs and strengths, and in general establish a positive rapport between the child, his/her parents and the teacher. Special Education teachers will be on hand to let parents know what services they provide. Our Art, Music, P.E., Counselor, and Title I teacher will be in their rooms to discuss their programs. The front office staff will be available to answer questions concerning proper procedures for calling, visiting, signing children in and out, and keeping information up to date. This is not a formal day of school so parents and students can stay as long or little as they want to become acquainted with the school and be prepared for classes to begin when students come on Tuesday, August 18th. As a reminder, the school day at Park Avenue is Monday 8:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. I am looking forward to working with all students and parents to make this a fantastic school year. Sincerely, Tatia Fernandez, Principal Principal, Park Avenue Elementary

Character Counts Word of the Month

Respect

Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule+ Be tolerant and accepting of others+ Use good manners, not bad language+ Be considerate of the feelings of others+ Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone+ Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements

 

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!

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.

 

Intervention Time

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.

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.

 

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.

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.
