Dear Parents and Students
Welcome to the Avaxat Elementary School web site! As you browse our web site, you will find links to pages that will provide you with information about our school, the calendar and school hours, our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), School Accountability Report Card, and directions to our school.
Motto: Learn More, Respect All!
Vision: Prepare all learners to live their dreams.
Mission: We will provide extraordinary, standards-based education with an emphasis on cultivating each student's Academic, Emotional, and Social potential.
As the Principal and Instructional Leader for Avaxat and all stakeholders my focus this year will be to improve Academic Achievement, improve Student Attendance, and improve Parent Outreach.
Student Achievement is best served through a collaborative partnership between the Teacher, Student, Parent, and Administrator. Through open dialog and support from all parties a student will see the value of education. We have implemented a growth mindset which teaches students to set goals and persevere to achieve their goals.
Student Attendance: Study after study proves there is a direct correlation between positive attendance and academic success. A child who misses 2 days of school per month, or 18 days per year, is three times less likely to read at grade level by the end of the school year. Here is a source to support positive attendance: Effects of Poor Attendance. Simply put, if students aren’t here, they aren’t learning.
Parent Outreach: Year after year we encourage all parents and family members to take an active role in their child's education. Avaxat offers many opportunities for you to share your son or daughter’s experiences by volunteering in the classroom and/or becoming involved with our Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Please feel free to consult with your child’s teacher regarding your interest in becoming a volunteer. Together we can make Avaxat a welcoming and friendly place for students to learn.
In closing, we believe that you will agree with the sign that is posted on our gates: “Through these gates pass the greatest students in our world.” We are committed to creating positive memories for your children, daily! Though there shouldn’t be many, please feel free to contact the office with any concerns you have regarding your child’s education as they arise.
Visit our school and District web site to learn more about how the Murrieta Valley Unified School District is working to inspire every student to think, to achieve, to learn,and to care.
Sincerely and Respectfully,
Principal, Avaxat AVID Elementary
