Welcome to A-O Elementary’s Page!


      I feel very fortunate to be the “lead learner” at A-O, serving our staff, students, and families as principal. Our school is so very special because of you, or families and our community! We are very fortunate to be surrounded by love and support at A-O. In this spirit, if you ever need anything at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.  You may email me at kristen_saundersrivera@abss.k12.nc.us, or feel free to call the school at 336-538-6030 to reach me.  Further, you may even “Book Me” to set up an appointment with me on my calendar by going to: kristensaundersrivera.youcanbook.me I welcome all forms of communication.  Sometimes, folks just want to “talk education,” and let me know of something in education they have heard about or read, which I absolutely love!  


    Additionally, please don’t ever second-guess getting involved with our school, either through volunteering in your child’s class, helping out with extracurricular opportunities, or even through contacting PTA to learn of more avenues to help.  Our PTA has wonderful volunteer opportunities awaiting YOU. You may reach them at the A-O PTA Facebook page, or through email at: aopta2013@gmail.com. Let A-O be the place where you spend your volunteer time.  We need you :-).
