continued He began going over an entry plan with DeSiato at the high school last Monday, May 7, and hopes to familiarize himself with students and staff between now and July.
“I want people to see me,” he said. “I want to have some conversations with people … because it’s a different culture and it’s a different community.”
Avellino said it will not be easy leaving F-M, the school from which his daughter, Rose, graduated last year. His two sons, Lewis and Joe, will be juniors and freshman at F-M High School in the fall.
“I was honored to give my daughter her diploma last year as she walked the stage, and that’s just something I’ll never get back,” he said.
“The relationships that I’ve built here in the last two years [I’ll miss the most],” he added.
Avellino will surely be missed by the students and staff at F-M.
“Greg has been an excellent member of our administrative team,” said F-M Principal Ray Kilmer. “His contributions will be missed at Fayetteville-Manlius High School. ESM has selected an outstanding instructional leader.”
