Principal's Message

Dear Alvaton Families, 

I am very honored and excited to take on this new role as Principal of my Alvaton family. It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. As we go through this time of uncertainty, I can assure you that we are working hard to stay connected and deliver the best instruction possible while students are learning at home. I am fortunate to have this opportunity to pursue a leadership role at such a beautiful and welcoming school where students are learning and continuing to grow as leaders.  

With 12 years of experience in education, I am prepared to help our Bluebirds soar! As the principal, I will work to support students academically, socially, and emotionally.  I believe in the potential of every student, and that we must prepare them to be world-class citizens.  We can achieve this together by continuing to provide experiences that are relevant, challenging, and meet the needs of each individual student. 

I look forward to learning more about you and your child/children as we work together to continue providing a positive, engaging, and rigorous learning environment for all students. I will uphold the mission of our school where we will deliver effective, high impact instruction, provide leadership opportunities for students to use their gifts as valuable contributors in the community, and ensure students utilize the 8 Habits, 21st Century Skills, and Growth Mindset tools in order to become global citizens.  I am dedicated to ensuring "Great Things Today, Greater Things Tomorrow! " for our students, teachers, staff, and community.  

I strongly believe in open communication and a home and school connection. You can be assured that I will always do what’s best for my students. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions or concerns.  As we take on new challenges and continue to meet new goals, we will together accomplish our shared vision of becoming the leader in education where every child succeeds at Alvaton Elementary.

Warm Regards,
Pauletha Butts
