• As the newly appointed Principal of Avondale Elementary School, it is with honor and great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you. I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the past 16 years as an English teacher and Assistant Principal.

    I have sought to ensure success of each student and the school, in both roles. It is my number one priority at AES to ensure that every student receives the most well-rounded education possible. I am also excited and eager to bring my skills as an instructional leader to Avondale Elementary School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success. I will work diligently, along with teachers and staff, to continue the legacy of success established by AES and the school district-- building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives, Common Core skills, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner.

    Most importantly, we know that an excellent education is not possible without the great collaboration of students, parents, and staff. It is through the same excitement and dedication that I look forward to becoming an integral part of the community with my own family and working with each of you to continue the great successes at AES. All of us at Avondale Elementary School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, and ideas that you would like to discuss.
    Best regards,

    Principal Dr. Sonya Lloyd, Principal
