Message from the Superintendent Steve Parkhurst
Welcome to the new Alva Independent School District Web Page. It is our intent to use this page as another avenue of communication to inform our community about the activities at each school. We hope this will help plan your calendar to correspond with school activities.
We believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is the desire of the Alva Independent School District to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that we believe are conducive to establishing such an environment; (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child’s natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) working in partnership with parents/guardians to accomplish these goals.
