Principal's Message

Hello from the Principal

Dear Park Families, What an amazing year we have had at Park Elementary School. This is our first official year with the EL Education Network and we have made tremendous growth with student engaged assessment and community based learning. Teachers spent time using protocols to look at student data in order to drive instruction. We also refined playground norms and expectations in order to reduce conflict through the use of clear expectations and restorative justice practices.
