A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The final month of school is upon us, but there is still so much to do! This is the time of the year students don’t want to miss a day. Testing has come to an end, and every class is busy working on different projects and activities at a feverish pace before the end of the year. Our end-of-the-year awards ceremony will be on May 21 at 6:00 p.m. in the district auditorium. All students in grades 1 through 5 will be going to the Oro Valley Aquatic Center for their end-of-year pool party!

Please help us close down the school year by turning in all library and school books. Pay any library fines for lost or damaged books. We would rather have the books back, so look hard for the lost ones.

This week is our final book fair, so make sure you stop by our library to visit and purchase. What a great opportunity to support our library and get some good books for summer reading!

A big shout-out and “thank you” to all our teachers as we observe National Teacher Day on May 6, and celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week from May 5 to May 11. Our teachers are an amazing group of professionals who make a difference in the lives of the students at First Avenue Elementary. Join in and show your appreciation.

Review the “Important Dates” section of our newsletter daily in order to keep up with the busy final days of the year.

Finally, I want to say “thank you” for a great 2018–19 school year. We are looking forward to seeing parents, guardians, and students at our new school site for the 2019–20 school year. Information for registration will be available through the Miner, Facebook, Remind, and on the sign in front of the high school campus.
