From the Desk of Avery Superintendent: Excitement Surrounding New Year

Published Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 10:06 am

Dear Editor:

It is difficult to believe that half the school year is already completed, and the Christmas holidays have begun. The students of the Avery County Schools have achieved a great deal of success thus far and we anticipate even more achievements during the remainder of the school year. Our students have improved academically, competed well athletically, and participated proudly in a variety of other activities. Most importantly, we are proud that our students have progressed in their character development and citizenship skills.

I want to thank each individual in our school system who works so diligently each day to provide the best possible education to our students. My gratitude is extended to each parent who has provided support to his/her child and to the school system. We are very blessed to live in a community that conscientiously assumes its responsibility to educate children and to provide the necessary resources for their success.

As 2016 approaches, we anticipate the year with excitement; yet, we know much work is yet to be done. It is imperative that we continue to work together as a community to reduce the number of students dropping out of school and to continue to emphasize the importance of education. It is also of great importance to meet the needs of each student who is in our school system.

As the school system continues to work with parents and the community to fulfill the challenge of educating our children, please share your ideas and suggestions. Your input is greatly appreciated and needed. Together, we can accomplish so much for the young people of our county.

Best wishes to you and your family for the most blessed of Christmases and the best of new years. With your continued support, the Avery County Schools can and will help each child achieve all the success and happiness he/she so richly deserves. Together, we can make sure that all our children experience success.
