It is that time of year again! We are working hard at Park Elementary preparing for another great school year. I LOVE this time of year!
I hope all of our students are excited as I am to get back to school, friends and a fantastic learning adventure. I say adventure because that is my goal - to help our student see what an adventure learning can be! We were all born knowing that learning is fun, purposeful and exciting. Our Park Staff intends to make sure our students experience learning in this way! Discoving the joy of learning is what Park Elementary staff is all about this year! I believe this will be our best year ever.
As always, we are a team and I look forward to working with each of our Park families this school year. I will see all of our students on Tuesday, September 3!
One important note is a reminder that on Monday's school dismisses at 2:15instead of 3:26 for all students. This is every Monday all year long. Our Park teaching staff uses this valuable time to review data, curriculum and instruction. This collaborative time is a highly-researched practice used to improve education for all of our students. We, once again, thank you for working with us in this endeavor of educating all of our youth to the highest levels. Thank you for your support!
I look forward to the start of this new and exciting school year!
