Principal's Message

Message from the Principal

Welcome to another year at Avalon K-12 School!  Last year the students and staff had an extraordinary year and we are looking forward to an even better one this year. From kindergarten to graduation, Avalon School is committed to maintaining rigorous academic expectations and encouraging personal integrity in a safe and supportive environment while fostering development of the 21st century college and career skill set.  Our student learner outcomes outline the qualities we strive to develop in our students.                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Avalon Students will…                                                                                                                                                            

Demonstrate independence, build strong content knowledge, comprehend, communicate and critique effectively, work productively in teams and become digitally literate.                                                                                 

The faculty and I are looking forward to working with you to ensure that each and every student in the school is successful this year, both academically and socially. With the implementation of the Common Core State Standards your child will be engaged in more rigorous coursework.  We appreciate your continued support at home as we transition.  We ask that every student comes to school every school day on-time, with all his or her materials and prepared to do his or her best. We all want our students to have school experiences that prepare them for the next adventure in a safe environment where they can learn and grow. Parent participation is a very important piece of this equation. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success.  There are many opportunities for parent participation offered at Avalon School. Look for the quarterly newsletter for some ways you can get involved. 

We believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of Avalon School. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community. Stay current with Avalon School by joining ParentVue: https://parentlbusd.lbschools.net, or visiting our School Website: http://lbavalon.schoolloop.com/ and school Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/CatalinaAvalonSchool. All students are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. I look forward to seeing you all on or before our scheduled Back to School Nights; September 23rd for Elementary School and October 7th for Secondary School. Please mark your calendars. I look forward to working together to develop Lancer Scholars of exceptional character. Feel free to contact me with any comments or questions you might have. 

 

Kindly,

Angelica Gonzalez, Principal

 

Mensaje de la Directora

Bienvenidos a otro año en la escuela Avalon K-12!  El año pasado los estudiantes y el personal tuvieron un año extraordinario y estamos mirando adelante a uno aún mejor. Desde el preescolar hasta la graduación, Avalon School está comprometida a mantener expectativas académicas rigurosas y alentando la integridad personal en un ambiente seguro y de apoyo.  Nuestros resultados de aprendizaje estudiantil delinean las cualidades que nos esforzamos por desarrollar en nuestros estudiantes.                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Estudiantes de Avalon podrán...                                                                                                                                                            Demostrar independencia, construir conocimiento de  contenido comprender, comunicar y críticar con eficacia, trabajar productivamente en equipos y alfabetizarse digitalmente.                                                                                 

La facultad y yo estamos deseando trabajar con usted para asegurar que cada estudiante en la escuela tiene éxito este año, tanto académicamente y socialmente. Con la aplicación de “Common Core” su hijo participará en cursos más rigurosos.  Agradecemos su apoyo en casa mientras que hagamos la transición.  Le pedimos que cada estudiante venga a la escuela cada día escolar a tiempo, con todos sus materiales y dispuesto a hacer su mayor esfuerzo. Todos queremos que nuestros estudiantes tengan experiencias escolares que los preparan para la próxima aventura en un ambiente seguro donde pueda aprender y crecer. Participación de los padres es una pieza muy importante de esta ecuación. Investigación apoya claramente que cuando los padres/tutores participan y están involucrados en la educación de sus hijos, hay una mayor probabilidad de éxito académico.  Hay muchas oportunidades para la participación de los padres ofrecida en la escuela de Avalon. Busque el boletín trimestral de alguna manera que puedas involucrarse.

 

Creemos que la comunicación es la clave para una exitosa experiencia educativa. Juntos, seguiremos a mejorar la calidad de nuestra comunidad escolar y ofrecer lo mejor para los niños de escuela de Avalon. La educación es una asociación entre la escuela, estudiantes, padres y comunidad. Manténgase al corriente siendo parte de ParentVue: https://parentlbusd.lbschools.net, o visitando el sitio de internet de la escuela: http://lbavalon.schoolloop.com/ y nuestra pagina de Facebook: www.facebook.com/CatalinaAvalonSchool. Todos los estudiantes tienen más éxito cuando trabajamos en equipo para lograr objetivos educativos. Si usted tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud, por favor no dude en contactarse con nosotros. Estoy deseando verlo en o antes de nuestras programadas noches de regreso a la escuela; 23 de septiembre para la escuela primaria y el 7 de octubre para la escuela secundaria. Por favor marque sus calendarios. Estoy deseando trabajar juntos para desarrollar a estudiantes sobresalientes de carácter excepcional. No dude en contactarme con algún comentario o pregunta que tengas.

WASC Accreditation

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation process is called Focus on Learning. The goal of this process is to evaluate a school’s impact on student learning, as well as the effectiveness of the school’s programs and its operation. In 2009, WASC awarded Avalon School with a six-year accreditation with a Midterm Review after three years. The 2009 report identified three Critical Areas for Follow-up that we have been addressing during the past three years. On March 26, 2012, a two-person team visited Avalon and looked at our progress. We were excited to share our progress with them and look forward to sharing the visiting committee’s report with you soon.

-----------------------------------------

La Asociación  de Escuelas y Colegios (WASC) se llama “foco en el aprendizaje.” El objetivo de este proceso es evaluar el impacto de una escuela de aprendizaje, así como la eficacia de los programas de la escuela y su funcionamiento. En 2009, WASC otorgó Avalon con una acreditación de seis años con un reviso de mitad de período después de tres años. El informe de 2009 identificó tres áreas críticas para el seguimiento que nos hemos estado ocupando durante los últimos tres años. El 26 de marzo de 2012, un equipo de dos personas visitará Avalon y miraran nuestro progreso. Estamos muy contentos de compartir nuestro progreso con ellos y deseando compartir el  informe de la Comisión visitante con usted pronto.

School Loop

Avalon teachers, counselors, officer personnel, and administrators communicate with students and their families through traditional methods and newly adopted technologies. The most recent communication tool available to our staff is School Loop. School Loop is a web-based site that offers 6th through 12th grade students and their families a wide range of information about the school and their individual student. Students, parents, and guardians may obtain Avalon Schools School Loop accounts, and not only view news and updates about the school, but also peruse their own child’s class and homework assignments, test grades, and overall academic standing. School Loop can be used to reach teachers, counselors, and administrators by e-mail. Families may obtain assistance to sign onto School Loop at Back to School, or by individual appointment through their student’s counselor.

 
The school website is also a School Loop product.
 
School Messenger, a telephone based communication system, offers teachers, counselors, office staff, and administrators a tool to relate information about individual students or school-wide news to families in their native language. Teachers have access to a menu of pre-recorded messages concerning classroom assignments, grades, behaviors, and activities, that they can send to family phones with the touch of a couple letters on the keyboard.
 
Administrators and office personnel possess the ability to send notifications to families of targeted groups of students or the entire school population. Attendance calls arrive on family phones automatically on the day a student is absent from one or more class period. The school receives a list of unsuccessful calls every time a  message is sent, improving our ability to update phone numbers for our students’ families.
