Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  My name is Wendy Younger Thomas and it is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I will be the new Principal at Altavista Elementary! I am truly honored to have been given this opportunity and I am looking forward to working with each family to positively impact the academic growth of every student at AES!

I believe in building strong relationships with students, teachers, staff, parents, and the community to help all students meet and exceed high expectations. I look forward to working with Ms. Rachelle Herndon, our Assistant Principal, as we both approach this new school year together looking for ways to support all children throughout their educational journey.  Our goal for the upcoming school year will be to improve academic success for all students through relationships and accountability.  With your support we will reach this goal! 

While at AES for registration day on Wednesday, August 10, 2016, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to me.  During the school year, my door is always open and I welcome visitors to stop by so we can begin getting to know each other.  Enjoy the remainder of summer vacation and please feel free to contact me at any time.
