AW End of Year Party 6/8
Avoca West End of Year Party
Come and join us on THURSDAY June 8th from 11:30am - 1:00pm in the Avoca West park.  Students will be celebrating the end of the school year with a pizza picnic and outside games.  Details to follow soon from your room parent.

May 16th is our Bike Safety Day/Bike to School Rain Date!
This year we are coordinating it with our inaugural Bike Safety Day.  Dairy Queen ice cream coupons for all riders available in the morning!! 

There will be a Bike Rodeo for second graders, and presentations for 4th and 6th graders. We ask that all 2nd graders bring their bikes around to the south side of the building in the designated area near the gym.  

Recycle those school supplies!
Avoca District Green Committee is implementing two year-end recycling projects. We are collecting old magic markers and old binders. They will be recycled via Crayola and Office Depot respectively.  The 3rd grade Brownie troop is assisting with the binder collection.  We will start collecting right after Memorial Day at both schools. Time to clean out those bins and closets!

We Appreciate You.

The Avoca School District would like to invite you to our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast!

Please plan to attend to enjoy breakfast, student entertainment and receive recognition for all your contributions to our district.

Please RSVP by May 19, 2017 through this Evite
