Principal's Corner

Welcome to Avoca!

Welcome to Avoca Elementary School! We are eager and excited to host your children this year as we continue to incorporate concepts and activities that are relevant to elementary school students and future college and career readiness.

It’s going to be an exciting year as our students dive deeper into mathematical practices and continue to refine their literacy skills through reading / language arts, science, and social studies. The academic standards adopted by the state of Tennessee will provide our students with the skills they need to be successful now and in the future.

To ensure we are challenging our children at the appropriate level, we will use formal and informal assessments throughout the year so instructional practices can be modified to meet individual student needs. You’ll notice more and more emphasis on non-fiction reading materials and writing across the curriculum as we work to prepare our students for the new TNReady TCAP assessments. As we progress through the year, you will also see students using technology more and more to personalize their own learning experiences and expand their communication, collaborative, critical thinking, and creative skills.

We encourage you to follow your child’s progress through PowerSchool and / or Canvas and to connect with us on on our school website and / or our FaceBook page. We also have a Twitter account @BTCS_Avoca and hashtag (#AvocaDragons) for those of you who like to tweet.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 423.652.9445. Working together, we will make a positive difference in the lives of each of our students.
