Principal's Message

Dear Park Families,

Happy second semester! The beginning of each new semester is the perfect time to reflect on how our students and staff have grown as scholars. This past semester, Park Elementary school scholars have been exposed to a variety of rigorous tasks that increase depth and complexity. Park staff have engaged in multiple professional learning opportunities that focus on creating lessons that help scholars set goals for success and build a rich environment where students can effectively engage in a wide range of rigorous, content-rich conversations in a safe, supportive environment.
