Dan Chapin

I'm Dan Chapin, the proud Principal of Avon Middle School South.

I have enjoyed the privilege of working with middle school students as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, and principal since 1987. I am focused on helping middle school students develop strong character. I believe that a person of character is trustworthy, treats people with respect, is responsible, is fair, is caring, and is a good citizen. When we begin the day focused on being people of strong character, we set ourselves up for success.
