First and Fifth Grade Buddies

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Each Wednesday the fifth grade students buddy up with a first grader to read, practice spelling, or in this case, a special math integrated art activity.

When asked about working with a first grade buddy, Mckenzie said "I like helping them learn."  Mckay said "I like that they help and I read to them."

We are proud of our first and fifth grade leaders that are making a difference in the school.

Park's Positive Panthers

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Park Elementary halls were filled with Positive Panthers as they entered the school on monday morning.  Many students have been caught using the habits in the classroom, hallways, playground and lunch room.

Patrick Young from Mrs. Coates class was the first to receive a "Golden Panther Paw" and was able to write his name on the Postive Panther board.

No Tardy Smarties

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Park Elementary students and faculty have set a goal to have 95% on-time attendance by 8:30.  Students learned about the No Tardy Smarties last week in an assembly to kick off school and class W.I.G.S or Wildly Important Goals.

This is a special year for Park Elementary as we work toward becoming a Lighthouse School as part of The Leader in Me program.  As part of the requirements, school administrators, teachers, and students have several scoreboards to help motivate and increase on-time attendance, behavior and academics.
