Dear APS Families,

In a year that has seen many transitions and challenges, I am pleased to be able to bring closure to the changes in our administrative team now, rather than facing instability as we wrap-up this school year and prepare to open again in the Fall.  We are making these changes to effectively utilize the talents of our administrators and to maintain continuity with the established professionalism of a proven leadership team you and our students already know and respect.

  • Mr. David Kimball, having high school experience as an English teacher, Department Leader as well as an Assistant Principal for five years at Lyman Hall High School in Wallingford, CT, has requested to transfer to the role of Assistant Principal at Avon High School. He is looking forward to continuing relationships with former AMS students and families in his new role, as Dr. Eileen O’Neil leaves AHS to assist the District as its new Student and Family Services Coordinator.  
  • Mr. Jess Giannini, who assisted us at Avon Middle School during Mr. Kimball’s absence, has agreed to continue at the middle school, and will remain at AMS as Principal on a permanent basis. 
  • At Pine Grove School, Ms. Amy Borio and Ms. Jessica Buckle who stepped up to fill the roles of Principal and Assistant Principal on an interim basis, will now officially remain in their respective roles.  

Our AMS families received a communication from Mr. Kimball earlier today, and those of you at AHS and PGS will hear from the building administrators soon; however, I wanted to be certain that we communicated the same information to all families first.

Please join me in congratulating these talented and dedicated administrators and welcoming them to their new roles within the District. As always, be in touch if I can be of any assistance.

Bridget Heston Carnemolla, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
