From the Principal

  
February 25, 2014
 
Dear Park Avenue Families,
 
I hope you all had a restful winter break.  After a packed first five months of educational and social activities, the break was well-deserved. Once back to our classroom routines, students are building stamina in their reading, and continue to work on writing, mathematics, social studies and science.
 
Please be reminded that students should be in the building by 8:30.  Dismissal is between 2:45 and 3:00 and students should be picked up promptly.
 
Please support our PTO by attending the meetings and volunteering to help at these events.
 
Our service learning project for this month is the collection of food and other items for the “Pets Alive” organization in Elmsford.  Please help us to support this very worthy organization.
 
 Now is the window of opportunity for our community to write our state legislators.  They are currently reviewing the Governor's proposed budget.  Until the budget is approved by the legislature, adjustments can be made to the amount of state aid we receive for next year.
 It is critical that our legislators hear our concerns.  More than $100 million is at stake.  Please see our advocacy links and submit your letter.
 
Winter is a perfect time for skiing, sledding, ice skating, or reading a good book while it's snowing.  It's also flu season.  Please take all possible steps to protect yourself and your children.  
 
We should be proud of what we’ve accomplished so far this year, while gearing up for the tasks ahead of us.   
 
Best regards,
Mrs. Taylor




 
 
Major Goals of the Park Avenue School Plan
 
Goal #1: To raise levels of student achievement by providing increased opportunities for language and literacy development in all classrooms.  To implement this goal we intend to strengthen the ability of children to demonstrate their understanding of written and oral texts beyond the literal level through well-organized and thoughtful writing and the effective use of language mechanics conventions.

Goal #2: To maintain a high level of student achievement in mathematics by providing opportunities for students to practice basic computation, solve multi-step problems, make predictions, identify arrangement and patterns, explain reasoning, draw conclusions and analyze situations mathematically.

Goal #3: In order to ensure a safe school environment and promote the cognitive, ethical and social-emotional growth of students, Park Avenue will continue to expand its efforts to support comprehensive Character Education grades K-5.

Goal #4: To continue to offer greater opportunities for parent and broader community involvement at Park Avenue through the continued implementation of a community school program.  Broader community involvement will not only enrich our instructional programs but help Park Avenue families secure the resources they will need to improve the quality of their lives and the readiness of their children to learn and experience success in school.
