Dear Students, Staff, and Parents-

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Our commitment at Avondale Elementary School (AES) is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers.

    At Avondale, the expectations for academic performance and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school. It is with pride that we strive to promote a positive school climate, with dedicated teachers who love teaching their students. It is the contribution of our students to our school community that makes AES an exceptional learning community. Full participation in academics and the willingness to act responsibly as an individual within our educational environment are factors that enable all to have a successful and enjoyable year.

    As the Principal, I will continue to work diligently, along with teachers and staff, to continue the legacy of success established by Avondale Elementary School and the school district – building strong relationships with students, staff, parents, and stakeholders. We will focus on character education initiatives, utilize Common Core skills, analyze the data to drive instruction, and provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner.

    In conclusion, I am elated to start a wonderful school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at slloyd@bhm.k12.al.us. I am honored to serve as your Principal.
