Dear Parents and Guardians:
Park Elementary School is proud to be recognized as an A+ School of Excellence!!
It is a great honor to be a recipient of the award that is given annually to schools in the state of Arizona by the Arizona Education Foundation. It reflects what our staff, students, parents and community have achieved.
The A+ School of Excellence™ Program was created by the Arizona Educational Foundation in 1983. Its purpose is threefold:
- to identify and give public recognition to outstanding public schools in Arizona;
- to make available a comprehensive framework of key criteria for school effectiveness that can serve as a basis for participatory self-assessment and planning in schools;
- to facilitate communication and sharing of best practices within and among schools based on a common criteria related to success.
As an A+ School of Excellence, Park Elementary is recognized for the measures that have been implemented that fosters a positive and caring environment. We are committed to our students and our families to maintain high quality instruction that is rigorous and ultimately impact our student achievement.
We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners! As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become physically, academically, socially, and emotionally successful, which supports our District PASS Plan. It is our intent to address the whole child.
At Park Elementary School, we strive to provide a safe, harmonious and caring environment where all students are challenged to reach their potential and to experience success throughout their academic careers. It is our aspirations that each child recognizes their potential and actively participates, which enhances their overall learning experiences. In order to achieve these results, we enlist your assistance. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians are involved in their child’s education, there is greater likelihood of academic success for that child.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or myself.
Mrs. Connie McPherson, Principal
Park Elementary School
