Principal's Message

  • Welcome Abernethy Eagles to a new school year!


    It is my honor to welcome back each of you to the new school year. It is amazing to me how fast summer flies by and before we know it, we return for another year of teaching, learning, and sharing. I hope that each of you had a restful summer, and are reenergized for the school year ahead. We are excited to welcome back our returning families, as well as our new families.

    It is my privilege to serve the Abernethy families as your Principal for another year to continue to build on the already shining school reputation. As a school we are known for a high quality-learning environment characterized by outstanding students, strong teachers and support staff, and an actively involved parent community. At Abernethy we support excellence in education with a balanced curriculum for our diverse community of learners. We do this by empowering students with strategies, skills, and tools to promote wellness, character development, and academic achievement with the goal of developing lifelong learners equipped for success in a changing world. Our Faculty and Staff tirelessly work to equip our students for success in their next learning experiences. 

    At Abernethy we work hard to serve all families and provide the best education possible for your children. I invite you to contact me anytime you have questions or concerns. By working together, we can accomplish the best for all students. If there is anything we can do to support you or your children please do not hesitate to let us know. I am looking forward to a year of growth, achievement, professional satisfaction, and fun as we work together. Cheers to a new year!
