Special Communication Message --

Early Release on Monday, April 4th for Solar Eclipse!

RE: Solar Eclipse: Early Release Day, April 8th 

March 27, 2024

Dear Park Avenue Families,

We are writing to inform you of an important schedule change. On Monday, April 8th, a solar eclipse will occur during the afternoon and we will send our students home at 1:00 PM. This means buses will run like an early release Wednesday. Pre K classes [AM and PM] will be canceled for the day.

An early release will ensure that students are not traveling on buses and in the care of a responsible person if they watch the eclipse.


Eclipse timeline for Auburn:

             Beginning:  2:18 p.m.

             Maximum coverage (97.7%): 3:31 p.m.

             Ends: 4:40 p.m.

This is an exciting and unique event, and we want to remind everyone about the importance of viewing the solar eclipse safely. For more information, visit the following websites:

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in ensuring the safety of our students.

Dear Families,

It’s hard to believe we are ending the second trimester with the start of conferences, and that the third trimester is beginning! This school year is flying by!

The next few weeks leading up to spring break will be just as busy as students continue to work hard and celebrate their hard work - especially with you during parent & teacher conferences.

Some highlights we have shared together the last few weeks here at school:

  • We had many families join us for a night of fun for Sweetheart BINGO!

  • We celebrated a winter fun spirit week before February vacation!

  • Our chorus had a fantastic performance for students featuring songs about friendship!

  • Jason tardy gave a fun and exciting performance about goal setting for families on Friday, March 1st!

As the second trimester comes to a close, I want to thank all of our parent volunteers who have been coming into school each week to support our students and staff! We are so appreciative of you taking the time to come in and support our school community! If you are interested in coming in to volunteer, please call the school and we will give you a volunteer form to complete!

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, or to make a connection. I always enjoy connecting with our Park Avenue families.
