Ms Martinez is a great teacher,respected and loved by the kids. She really knows how to get the students involved and focused on learning. Short Avenue has the best teachers, we are very happy with my son progress!
As it is teacher appreciation week, I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Mr. Fast. He is a great teacher who cares about his students and goes above and beyond to help them and the parents. He even came out to support and watch my son play football on a Sunday! He knows how much my son loves football and it meant a lot that he took the time out of his weekend to come to my son's game. How many teachers do that?! Thank you Mr. Fast !
Thank you for helping to make kindergarten such a positive experience for Samyak. With all of your patience, creativity, and love, Samyak has achieved a lot this year. He has started off on the right foot by having such great teachers.
Thank you. You have made a great difference for all of our children. Because you care so much about them, you have directed them to trust themselves in all that they do and to become all that they dream.
With sincerest appreciation,
Thank you to the wonderful teachers at Short Avenue. So many of you go above & beyond for our students (teaching after-school enrichment classes, working 12 hour days, etc) and we're fortunate to have you educating our kids. Your talent, wisdom and dedication are the driving force of this school. And you make learning fun!
Great school. Our children LOVE going to school!
This year in Mr. Schieneman's class they are doing classroom economy.
It's a simple classroom economic system based on the idea that students need to earn school "dollars" so that they can rent their own desks.
My child is learning financial responsibility, having a lot of fun too!
This is a neighborhood school - and we like this aspect of it very much. We met a lot of great parents. If you live in our community- definitely come to the food truck night- at the front of the school. The poster with a time and date hangs on the fence facing Short Ave. My daughter is active in a girl scout troop at the school and I believe there is also a boy scout troop with active schedule and camping.
I definitely recommend our school to parents who live in our neighborhood.
Short Avenue Elementary is an amazing neighborhood school. The teachers are incredibly devoted and go above and beyond for each child. My daughter would never have received this much attention at a larger school.
