•    Principal's Welcome
    Mr. Chapin, Principal
    I have enjoyed the privilege of working with middle school students as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, or principal since 1987. This is now my nineteenth year as middle school principal.

    My oldest son has teased me in the past by telling me that I will be in middle school forever. He is correct because I truly enjoy helping middle school students prepare to fulfill whatever dreams they have for life after high school!

    My wife and I are blessed to have two sons and an amazing daughter-in-law in our family. Our oldest son is finishing up his business degree at Ball State University while our daughter-in-law is completing her undergraduate degree at IUPUI. Our youngest son is a Kelley School of Business Senior at Indiana University.

    I am focused on helping our students develop strong character. I believe that a person of character is trustworthy, treats people with respect, is responsible, is fair, is caring, and is a good citizen. When we begin the day focused on being people of strong character, we set ourselves up for success.

    I am convinced that Avon Middle School South is a great place for middle school students. Please feel free to call me at 544-5700 to discuss any questions, concerns, or positive comments you have about our school. Together we can help your child and our students become successful adults.
