Principal's Message

Hello from the Principal

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 has engaged in multiple professional learning opportunities that focus on diving into student data that help scholars set goals for success and to create lessons that meet student needs. Students have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of rigorous content and to track progress and set goals around long-term learning targets. Ask your student what goals they have set for themselves. Due to the heavy focus on a culture of collaboration and student growth and goal setting, it is hugely important that students come to school.
