Principal's Message

July 25, 2019

Dear Students and Parents,

On behalf of Academy Del Sol, I would like to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year.  We have an exciting year of learning planned for our students!

I am honored to be working with ADS as the new principal.  My name is Brenda Dorsey.  Throughout my career, I have held the positions of elementary classroom teacher (17 years), elementary principal (7 years), Director of Schools, and currently the Director of Campus Support and Academy del Sol. I hope to offer many parent involvement opportunities, and I welcome your suggestions.  I also hope that you will take the time to come by and meet me.  My office is located at ADS on 1200 N. Florida Avenue; my phone number is 575-812-5505, and my email address is brenda.dorsey@alamogordoschools.org

Parents are a vital part of our educational work, and I welcome each and every one of you to be an active participant in your student’s education.  I also understand that your children are growing into adults during their time at ADS, so I encourage your student to get to know me and visit with me as we work together on his/her road to success.

School begins at 8:00 and dismisses at 3:20.   A detailed bell schedule is available on our school website www.aps4kids.org for your convenience.

There will be various activities occurring throughout the year.  In order to keep you informed of all activities and important dates, please refer to the district calendar.  Monthly newsletters and periodic reminders will be sent home.  Please keep the office informed of any changes such as address, phone numbers, etc.

We would like to invite and encourage all parents to take an active role in their child’s education.  We believe the educational success of a student depends on how effectively educators, students, and families work as a team.   The staff of Academy del Sol believes every student can succeed!  If you are interested in assisting me in forming an active parent group/support network, please see me.

In closing, we anticipate a year of acceptance, love, and learning for your child.  I am honored to serve as the Principal of Academy del Sol and look forward to working with you. 

Thank you for your continuing support.

Brenda Dorsey
