Welcome back to school year 2018-2019!  We are excited to see the many new faces in our hallways and welcome all of you to our school family.  Our students are off to a great start and the atmosphere is contagious!  Our motto this year is "We Are Avalon!" - showing pride in who we are as a school and as a school community!
The new year also brings some new ideas and changes such as an advisory period at the middle school and high school and Genius Hour at the elementary.  So many activities are already in the planning stages such as Project ExTRA beginning its 15th year!  Homecoming is just around the corner and plans for Fall Festival are thriving.  Plans are developing for a sensory sidewalk project and a Kindness rock garden.  Student Council and FFA are going strong.
 
We wish nothing but a great school year for all of our students and parents! 
 
It continues to be a wonderful journey! 
 
 
 
Best Regards, 
Dr. David Del Bosque
Superintendent
