My Pledge As Principal
Welcome to Park Avenue Elementary! Our school is full of terrific students, staff and families. As principal of Park Avenue, I pledge to each parent and child to do my very best to meet the goals we have set below. As a whole staff, we have clear and agreed upon goals and strive to develop all children to their full potential and get them ready for a successful middle school experience, an eventual high school graduation, and then beyond to be college and career ready. We do this by focusing on foundational reading and math skills, a balanced curriculum including science, social studies, computers, music, art and physical education, and supporting the many social and emotional needs a child may bring to school.
Our school goals call for:
1) annual achievement gains for all students in English Language Arts, Math, Science and Physical Education
2) annual English Language development gains for our English Learners
3) providing a safe and nurturing school environment and an extensive student safety net of intervention and support to achieve higher levels of student success.
Like our mission statement says on the home page, we will accomplish these goals by working together as staff, students, families and the community. Together this can and will be achieved!
Mr. Pogue, Principal
