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. Staff at Park Elementary have focused heavily on building academic language for students and a culture of collaboration where students learn from their peers. Due to the heavy focus on a culture of collaboration and talk amongst peers, it is hugely important that students come to school.
A pattern we have noticed is that during the winter months there is a drop in attendance. Excessive absences result in missing work, which is difficult to make up, losing continuity in school work, and poor grades. Parents/Caregivers, please continue to reinforce good attendance habits with your child.
We look forward to the second semester and the continued growth that all students are experiencing. It is our desire that the second half of the school year be excellent for all. If you need to meet with the counselor, social worker, assistant principal, or myself do not hesitate to contact us. We suggest that parents/caregivers call first to schedule appointments before coming in as we are not always able to meet.
Thanks for your continued support of Park Elementary School.
