The school year always seems to disappear before I am ready for it to end! I would like to thank the parents for working in partnership with us to make Avoca one of the best school districts in the country. Your volunteerism, dedication, and support makes everything run more smoothly. But most of all, thank you for sharing your children with us! 

Avoca is an amazing school community with so much to celebrate and be proud of. I would like to thank the staff for their unyielding dedication to our students! 
We accomplished quite a lot as we worked to meet the goals of year one of the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan. I have posted that impressive list to my blog page, which can be accessed here, and encourage you to see what was achieved! 

I have also posted the Graduation Address that I delivered to our 8th graders on Tuesday. Their theme was How Far I'll Go, and my message to this diverse group of students was they'll go farther together. They are a great group of kids, and we miss them already!
Have a happy, safe and exciting summer!

Superintendent, Kevin Jauch
Thank you!
Thanks to all of the volunteers, staff and families that helped make the 2016-17 school year such a success. The mission of the PTC is to build community at the school and support the staff and teachers. With the creation of the innovation grant program, funded by your donations; a successful fun fair, read-a-thon, intercultural night, ice cream social, class parties, movie night, boys night, girls night, teacher appreciation lunches, assembly speakers and art in action day--we came together to achieve a tremendous amount in support of our schools. The PTC could not be more honored to have worked with you all to achieve so much! If you are interested in helping us next year or have any questions about getting involved with the PTC, feel free to contact us at
