Superintendent's Corner

We have come to the end of another school year.  Do they seem to pass by more quickly these days?  Maybe not, but with all that is contained within a year of school days, it is no wonder that time seems to pass  more quickly, days seem to fly by and suddenly another year has passed.  On to the next grade!  The next year!  But wait…

I hope all of our students and parents, teachers and staff, administrators and myself, take this time until August to sit back – and take a rest.  I read somewhere that we all need to remember to not pack our summertime with activity after activity so that our children (and us) do not get bored.  Our students have had an active and mentally challenging school year.  They have participated, competed and learned so much that I do truly believe they also need to know how to rest.  The trick comes in knowing how to teach them HOW to rest.  Hopefully, with time not so occupied with events, parents can also refocus and refresh.

Have them pick a book of their own and enjoy reading for reading’s sake.  Have any leftover markers and colors and drawing paper?  Help them find time to create and draw, use their imagination.  Get them outside to play in the sprinkler, make mud pies (remember those?), work and play with their pets or animals.  Learn to use a camera and take pictures with meaning (even on a phone). Go in the kitchen and learn to make simple items (brownies, eggs, sandwiches, cookies).  Make a cake and decorate it together.  Movie nights with popcorn, going for a ride in the country, taking walks at the park, taking a nap.  Take things easy. 

That list is not limited to students.  Adults can pick from the list as well.  Some of us will continue to work through the summer, but for me, I already plan to widen my world through my photography.  Pictures and naps.  What a great summer headed my way!

All my best to our Avalon family!  Enjoy your summer!

Best Regards, 

Dr. David Del Bosque

Superintendent

Pre-K and Kindergarten Round-up ~ Friday, March 2!

Is your little one ready for Pre-K or Kindergarten next year? This Friday, March 2, will be the Round-Up registration day for Avalon ISD for children ages 3- 5 years old.

Children must be in one of these age groups by September 1st, 2018 to be eligible for the next school year. Each child’s hearing and vision will be checked.

Parents need to bring immunization records, birth certificates and social security cards to the Round-Up. In order for the school to plan properly for the next year, it is important that all eligible children attend the Round-Up. We will also be filling out pre-enrollment paperwork necessary for your child to enter the next school year. (cont.)
