Superintendent's Corner

The school year 2016-2017 has come to a successful conclusion and graduates have embarked on a new adventure.  Students in all other grade levels look forward to a new year of learning and growing as students and individuals.  Teachers and staff take some time to rest, refresh and many are already planning and creating for 2017-2018.  Summer also can be the busiest time of year for administrators as we organize, evaluate, plan and prepare to make each new school year better than ever. 

Our summer programs are important to the children of Avalon.  Summer school allows for additional remediation and preparation for STAAR retests, credit recovery and grade level promotion.  The free lunch program offers lunches for children ages 3-19 four days a week.  Our partnership with United Way of West Ellis County continues as the Summer Recreation Program gives Avalon children a place to go to participate with others in an air-conditioned area with board games, pick-up games, etc.  Take advantage of our free lunch and recreation programs and keep the kids busy this summer!

The district office will be open this summer with specific closed dates posted as they come up for days such as floor refinishing.  Behind the scenes, we are busy with next year’s budget, closing out this year’s budget, moving furniture, creating master schedules and filing major state reports.  It seems there never really is “down time” and, yes, we miss the student’s voices, visits and smiles that we enjoy during the school year! 

I wish all of you a great summer and hope we all find time to relax, refresh, rejuvenate and prepare to have a terrific 2017-2018!  

Always remember that Together We Make a Difference!

Best Regards, 

Dr. David Del Bosque

Superintendent
