Closing Out 2015-16
Whew! Another one for the books.
As we close the 2015-16 school year, we do so with a mix of relief, gratitude, excitement, melancholy, and joy. By any measure, this has been a tremendous year for the Avon Community School Corporation. The Class of 2016 has set an incredibly high standard of achievement. They were in part responsible for:
The list of accomplishments could be quite a bit longer, but nothing ever truly measures the human experience like the stories shared at the dinner table or while talking before bedtime. Ask your child, what was the best about this school year? No doubt his/her answers will mention a dedicated teacher, a fabulous bus driver, a wonderful coach. Rest assured, parents, we know that the year was a fabulous one in large measure because of you.
People often ask me what’s so special about Avon. My answer is always: You! You educators, you students, you parents, you community members are the secret sauce that make Avon a great place to work and learn. Thank you!
Educate. Excite. Excel.
