Principal's Message

Dear Lorca Community,

I love November for so many reasons!

First, I am thrilled about our exciting new website and for the fantastic Lorca staff who made it possible!  I encourage you to experience our students' achievements and to learn about our staff.

Also, November provides us all with multiple opportunities for reflection, involvement, celebration and gratitude. Thank you to all our honored military families for their service! Also, we're so fortunate to have our beautiful families share their traditions during our annual Multi-Cultural Event!  An upcoming event is our Fall Parent & Teacher Conferences.  Please come and meet our Preschool- 2nd grade teachers and celebrate our students during 3rd-8th Student-Led Conferences on Nov. 14 as they partner with their parents and teachers to support them throughout the year.

Lastly, I greatly appreciate the time to reflect on the tremendous impact Lorca has had on the Avondale Community these past nine years!  I am truly blessed with great students and exemplary staff and faculty!  
While traveling in China with fellow educators from the US serving varying school populations and districts, it is not surprising to learn that we have one thing in common: the love and commitment we have for our students to advance them in the 21st century!


Mrs. July Cyrwus, Principal
