A note from the Principal...

I sure hope that this warmer weather means that Spring has finally arrived!

This Tuesday and Thursday are our annual Pre-Enrollment Nights for scheduling of next year's classes. So all you Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior parents, we look forward to seeing you on one of those nights. If you can't remember what time you are scheduled for, call the office and we will get you set up. We look forward to helping you and your child map out their future here at AVHS and beyond. Please come with questions or ideas on how we can help make those plans a reality.

In case you haven't yet heard, due to the inclement weather days this year, Graduation will again be moved back to Friday, May 22nd. I can already say that I am really going to miss this class. They are a fine group of individuals and have carried themselves with a class that will surely make them successful after they move on to bigger and better things. Can't wait to see what all they accomplish!

This spring we will have a couple awareness days for Drugs and Alcohol and for Safe Driving (texting while driving). As I am sure you know, both of these are issues that our kids deal with on a weekly basis in some form or another. I would love for you to share any ideas you have on how we can help in these areas or any ideas you may have on how we can combat these issues our kids face. I would also love to have a few parents who might be interested in helping with a couple of the things we have going those weeks. It could be as simple as handing out some promotional stuff that we have to kids on the way out of school. If you are interested, or again have any ideas, please call or shoot me an email. We can do it ourselves, but we know schools work best when we are working together to help our kids.

Thanks for reading,

Mr. Brian Beard

AVHS Principal
