Welcome to Avella Elementary Center where our students are our top priority and focus.  Our staff is filled with excitement to be apart of your child's educational journey.  We look forward to building the foundation for your child through rigorous course of study that includes all core subjects such as English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science, as well as the fine and applied arts that encompasses music, art, physical education, library, Makerspace, and computer innovation and design.  Students engage in computer programming/coding through programs like Tynker, Scratch, Code and Lego Robotics.  

Avella Elementary utilizes Class DOJO to allow for ongoing communication between the home and school.  We believe that all of us - the school and community- must work together to ensure the success of all of our students.  We believe we all have a responsibility to grow and empower our students to reach their fullest potential.  

Avella Elementary focuses on educating the whole child.  We provide opportunities for students to be recognized for their acts of kindness and facilitate this process through implementing the 7 Mindsets social and emotional curriculum.  We focus on a restorative approach with our students allowing them to understand, everyday is a new day.  

We welcome and value your presence during school events and encourage you to participate with our vibrant AEC parent group.  This group provides an enormous amount of support and dedication to our students and staff.  

Please feel free to contact me to learn more about our amazing school.

Best regards,

Mrs. Carrie Graff
