Superintendent's Message

"I'd like to send my thanks to all our AVUHSD faculty and staff.  Your dedication makes miracles happen daily in the classrooms, and your gift to the United Way can make miracles happen off-campus.  Your donation to the United Way may help some of our very own students and their families.  A hot meal,  a place to stay, and somewhere to sit and do homework can make a big difference in a student's life.

I am very proud to be a part of the AVUHSD family, and proud to support the United Way!"

 - Dr. David Vierra,
AVUHSD Superintendent
