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!
