Aztec Schools will be hosting a balloon event in the form of a Pep Rally with the theme of Learn to Rise as the focus on September 28th, 2023. Park Avenue will be released around 9:00 and will travel to Fred Cook Stadium by Koogler for the event. Students will be served cinnamon rolls and juice upon their arrival and then will be entertained and rallied by our cheerleaders and dance team. The Tiger tunnel will be up so that students will be able to run/walk through it to the stands escorted by their teachers. The only students on the field will be the students that won the raffle from each individual school. (Please make sure they have a signed permission form.) We will have our yearbook sponsor taking pictures of your students. Safety will be provided by the police and our safety team. It should be a very fun event for your students and we appreciate your cooperation in allowing them to be a part of this. Please remember, that we cannot have added vehicles or spectators of any kind because of the capacity and for safety reasons. If you have questions, please call the school for added information. (This event will last approximately for about 45 minutes for each school, times may vary.) Students should return to Park Avenue around 10:40 am.
Greetings Park Avenue Families,
We have many students who have still not registered for the 23-24 school year. While all students are placed in classes, we do need every parent to login to PowerSchool and update forms for the current school year. Our goal is that 100% of families have these forms complete by next Friday 8/11/23.
If your student will not be attending Park Avenue this year, we do need you to come to the school and withdraw them. Our classes are very full, so if your student will not be attending, we need you to withdraw them asap to make room in our classes.
We will be reaching out with more information about Meet and Greet and the new school year early next week, and look forward to seeing everyone soon!
Park Avenue Elementary School
Once you have registered your student next week, you will be able to look at their class schedule in PowerSchool and see who their teacher is for this school year.
-To respect the privacy of all students, we will not be posting class rosters on school windows this year.
-In addition to being able to see teacher names on PowerSchool, we will mail home postcards to each student letting them know their teacher's name and room number before school begins.
Remember, Park Avenue will have a meet and greet day for all students on Friday, 8/11/2023 from 8am to 3pm where students and their parents can:
-Pick up backpacks filled with supplies
-Complete important paperwork
All students at Park Avenue will start school on Monday 8/14/23
