School Uniform Policy and Dress Code Guidelines for 2019

Beginning August 2019, Avalon K-12 School will implement a School Uniform Policy similar to those in effect at other LBUSD schools. The purpose of the uniform policy and dress code at Avalon K-12 School is to present a professional and academic atmosphere for our students. Uniforms also promote a safer more secure campus. We believe the dress at Avalon School reflects an attitude of self-respect and a commitment to learning. Thank you for your support in helping our students be serious about school.

Most Inspiring Student - Jose Barragan Solano

Each year the Long Beach Educational Foundation holds a dinner and awards ceremony to honor the District's Most Inspiring Students. Some are the first members of their families to graduate from high school and to go to college. Some achieve despite difficult circumstances. Some face tough challenges: serious injuries, life-threatening illnesses, severe disabilities, extreme poverty, loss of loved ones and other difficulties that could impair their education. Some have excelled despite incredible odds. All inspire us with their perseverance and determination.

This year Avalon selected Jose Barragan Solano as our Most Inspiring Student.

Jose is an exceptional young man; an inspiration who shows others that with hard work, dedication, determination and a positive attitude great things can be accomplished. Maintaining an incredibly busy schedule he does an amazing job balancing academics, athletics, extra-curricular activities, and work, always with a smile on his face. Jose learned English as a second language in an astonishingly short period of time, and has used his language skills as a spring board for other academic and professional pursuits. He even earned a place as one of our Co-Valedictorians this year. Jose strives to learn, and shares what he has learned with others. He is a great debater and eloquent speaker with a witty sense of humor. He has a genuine spirit of giving and caring and it really shows both at school and in our small community. Congratulations to Jose Barragan and all of the other Inspiring students
