Superintendent's Corner

A new school year offers the most important point at any time of the year – a moment to begin again.  To renew.  To reenergize.  To recommit.

As the 2017-2018 school year started on its roaring path, I took those words to heart and have asked our school family to join with me.  This year’s theme for all of us is BE THE ONE! 

We have accomplished so many amazing accomplishments as a school district and experienced some tremendous highs because of the dedication of our students, faculty, staff, parents and friends.  We must also remember, and never take for granted, all of the hard work and commitment it takes day in and day out to make our goals become a reality.  Good grades, state honors and national awards all come from hard work at school and at home.  They come from working together, supporting each other and cheering each other on no matter what the subject or activity may be. 

Yet we cannot just sit by and expect these amazing things to just appear.  Someone takes the first step.  Someone sees something to create or adjust.  Someone joins in to lend a helping hand.  Someone takes the step to encourage and build others up.  Someone decides to BE THE ONE. 

As we go through this school year, I ask that all of us in our Avalon School family take that pledge to BE THE ONE.  Join me and we will continue to make Avalon ISD a place where people Make A Difference!

Best Regards, 

Dr. David Del Bosque

News and Announcements

Thanksgiving Holidays!

Avalon ISD will close Monday, November 20 through Friday, November 24, for the Thanksgiving holidays. We will dismiss at the usual time of 3:25 p.m. on Friday, November 17.


UPDATE: A gas line was cut this afternoon (11-14-17) on Hemphill Street, one block over from the school. As a precautionary measure, Avalon ISD enacted its Emergency Evacuation Plan. During that time, the sheriff’s office notified the school that the leak had been capped and all was safe again. The evacuation was cancelled, all is safe and all activities have returned to normal on campus. We extend our thanks to the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office and the Avalon Volunteer Fire Department for their communication and protection and to Italy ISD for their helpful response to our coordinated plan.
