AVONDALE MIDDLE SCHOOL!

Happy New Year!

I am sure most of us are happy to see 2020 behind us. As we focus on the future, I believe it is important to reflect on lessons I have learned over the past year. Patience, flexibility, and perseverance seemed to be the reoccurring lessons I recall. Parents, you have been patient, you have been flexible, and you have persevered thus far.


Principals often brag about their students and staff, and yes I feel I have a lot to brag about in that respect. In reflecting on my first semester this fall, the one group I have been impressed with, but have not yet recognized is our parents/guardians. The phone calls, zoom meetings, and emails I have had with parents has taught me a lot about the resilience and unwavering support our parents have and give to the community and school. As a father of three, I understand what many of you and your students have persevered through. We are on our way back to a sense of normalcy; It won’t happen right away or all at once, but it will inevitably happen!
