Abess Park is the winner of Golden School Award and the 5 Star Award.

Our School Theme for the 2015 - 2016 School Year is:

Welcome to our new 2015-2016 school year ‘where learning is out of this world!’  This school year we will be challenging students by introducing new curriculum in Reading, Writing, and Math which will be more rigorous and more engaging than ever before.  Information regarding these academic expectations will be shared through our monthly newsletter, Paw Prints, as well as the parent page on our website.  Please refer to both resources for suggestions in supporting your student’s learning at home.

We will continue our exploration into Science and Music this year through school-wide science projects and music integration in our daily lessons.  In addition we offer numerous extra-curricular activities to involve students in their many interests and talents.  Be on the lookout for our Family Nights so you can plan to join us for learning and fun.  We know how proud our students are to share their hard work!

I continue to be grateful every day to work with such an exceptional faculty, talented student body, supportive families and a dedicated community of stakeholders.  We hope you join us in our challenging exploration in the 2015-2016 school year at Abess Park where we will rocket to success for all students in all standards.
