Vail Daily letter: Congratulations Avon Elementary!
Vail, CO, Colorado
I just wanted to give a loud congratulations to Avon Elementary for receiving the honor of Blue Ribbon School! I was not able to attend the ceremony on Nov. 28, but wanted to let the staff, students and parents know how proud I am of them all. I was a past teacher at Avon Elementary and my two children attended preschool there. It is exciting to see the staff’s continued hard work in educating “the whole child.”
Their new in-school health clinic shows their dedication to the community. The school clinic also shows the wisdom of the staff knowing that a healthy child has better attendance, is happier, more receptive and more successful. Bravo!
I know you will continue your hard word and your focus on the child. The children are what education is all about and the school has not strayed from that belief.
