We are heading into Spring Break, which means the final grading period is right around the corner. It's hard to believe that we are nearing and preparing for end-of-year activities already. It's been a wonderful year to this point, and I expect nothing less for this last quarter.
Students at Avondale having been working hard this winter on their core subjects, in their related arts classes, and with various school activities. Select fourth graders participated in a series of "Secret Kindness Agent" activities in February, our third grade Guys With Ties boarded the Kindness Bus on March 21st, and all of our classes continue to support each other in a variety of ways.
Avondale families should plan to join us on Thursday, April 11th from 6-8 pm for our Spring Celebration. You will enjoy student musical performances, displayed artwork, and creative art and science activities in classrooms. We are looking forward to celebrating with you then!
Please be sure to subscribe to my email newsletter to stay up to date with all of the activities we have going on at Avondale. Additionally, please follow "Avondale Elementary" on Facebook. Our page is updated with highlights, successes and fun stories several times per week.
Teachers and staff at Avondale work extremely hard to find that perfect balance of providing rigorous learning opportunities that are engaging and also focus on developing the "whole child". We couldn't do it without the support of our families. Because of our strong partnerships with the families, we are able to find success in every student. This staff cares deeply for each and every student, including their academic success, and most importantly their overall happiness and well-being.
Please continue to reach out to me with any assistance you might need.
Yours in partnership,
