Our role is to prepare Park students for success in the twenty-first century. We are committed to creative thinking, academic accomplishments and life long learning. Our students understand that what they learn in school applies to all aspects of their lives. Park promotes social awareness, involvement and compassion. Students discover the importance of their individual contribution to family, school, and community. Park students take an informed, active role in a global society.
Four days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) students will be on block scheduling where they will only attend half their classes. This schedule begins April 24 and ends May 5. Wednesday they will attend all classes on a regular Shortened Schedule. Monday and Tuesday will be "Odd Schedule" days, while Thursday and Friday will be "Even Schedule" days. The table below shows which periods students will attend on which days:
Starting Monday, April 24th we will begin our state and national testing. This testing is important for many reasons in gauging our success as a school and your students' success. We have changed our schedule for the next two weeks to allow for lager blocks of time for students to be tested. This will not affect the time students start or end school, just the periods they go to. During this two week window our 7th and 8th graders will be tested in English and Math and our 6th graders will follow. We have posted the schedule for students and parents to refer to. Some important reminders about preparing your students for testing:
For more specific information regarding testing, please contact the school at 779-7420.
