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

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.




Parents often want to know how they can help support their child’s education.  At Park Avenue we know that getting our students to read is the best gift we can ever give.  The following tips will help you support your child’s reading at home.

Get your child excited!  Reading is FUN!  Help your student choose something that is interesting and challenging.

Read with your child or at least read the same thing as your child.  Some parents think that in fourth and fifth grade your student is too old to enjoy reading with you.  Most kids still look forward to this special time with their parent.  However, if your son or daughter doesn’t want to read with you, then you can still read the same materials.  This way you can TALK about what you read.

Talk about what your child is reading.  Reading is meaning!  To enhance comprehension you can ask questions, talk about what will be read, what is being read, and what was read.  Ask your student about the main idea, their favorite characters, and to make predictions about what might happen next.  If you read the same text, these conversations will be natural, just like talking about a movie you watched together.

Read the book before seeing the movie.  Many students are highly motivated to watch a movie that was a book first.  Take time to read the book together before going to the movie.  Then talk about how the book and movie were both similar and different.

Encourage your child to WRITE.  Reading and writing are definitely connected.  Kids who write well typically read well and vice versa.  Encourage that connection and listen to your child’s stories.

Thanks for being the most  important part of your child’s education.

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.

From the Health Office...


Dear Parents and students,

As the flu season is fast approaching I would like to remind you of our sick child policy. While we all agree school attendance is very important please do not send your child to school if they have a fever. I would also like to remind parents that if their child comes into the health office with a temperature  of 100 degrees or more or if they are vomiting they will be sent home. If your child has a fever and is coughing they may be asked to wear a mask. Please keep your child home if they have a fever and do not send them back until they have been fever free for at least 24 hours without medication.

Please remember the importance of hand washing.  Hand washing is very important  in combating the spread of germs especially at this time of year.
