Park Avenue PTA

Park Avenue Elementary School

Welcome to the 2020–2021 school year!

This year will look a little different from the usual, but we are so excited to welcome each and every one of our students back. Whether your children will be attending school in person at Park Avenue or the Pine Island satellite school, or virtually through the Distance Learning Academy, we are all still members of the Park Ave family, and the PTA is looking forward to supporting our entire school community throughout the year.

For those of you who are returning to Park Ave, we’re hoping to bring back some of your favorite, familiar programs and events wherever possible, such as the talent show, the One Book, One School program, the Scholastic Book Fair, spirit days, and our Veterans Day celebration. Of course, some of these events may be held in a different format this year, but the same Wildcat spirit will be on display whether we’re engaging with our students in the classroom, outdoors, or from home. We’re also looking forward to creating some exciting new traditions this year, and to offering ongoing support for students and parents alike during these challenging times.

To our kindergarten families as well as anyone who is new to the district, welcome! Though our youngest students will be at a satellite school this year, please know that they are still very much a part of our Park Avenue community. We plan to work closely with the Sanfordville PTA throughout the year and to ensure that our kindergarteners can continue to take part in all Park Ave PTA-sponsored events and traditions. We will also be working with the school to make sure our events are accessible virtually, whenever possible, to all Distance Learning Academy families. Wherever your family’s learning will be taking place, please remember that above all, we are here to support you and to help you communicate with your school.

To that end, as we begin this unusual school year, we hope you’ll consider joining the PTA. Becoming a member is not only a great way to get involved in your child’s education and to stay informed about what’s happening at our schools, it’s also the number-one way you can quickly and easily support our Park Ave/Pine Island students. Your membership dues help us provide curriculum support, family activities, and exciting events throughout the year, so if you’re able, please click here to join today.

Best wishes for a safe and successful school year,
The Park Ave PTA Board

Pine Island Elementary School will be supported by both Sanfordville Elementary and Park Avenue Schools. Please connect with the school to which you would normally be assigned.
