Report Cards Heading Home

Keep an eye on your child's backpack tomorrow afternoon, as report cards will go home in SEALED envelopes. Please sign and return your child's envelope on Monday so that we know you have seen his/her progress report.

Valentine's Day Guidelines

If you're planning on sending valentine's cards with your child for this year's classroom exchanges, please know that any and all food needs to be nut-free/safe for those students with allergies. Our teachers will work to make sure that candy/food is NOT OPENED or eaten at school...but we understand that our students love to exchange treats with one another. Looking forward to spreading kindness and caring all through the month of February!

Art in Action is Nearly Upon Us!

Next Thursday, the 9th, all of our students at Avoca West will have a chance to engage in a variety of choice activities based in the arts. It is an annual tradition and one that is a highlight of the year! Thanks so much to those parents who have put time and energy into making this a meaningful day for our students. If you'd like to volunteer, please reach out to Michelle Rowe at mwrowe5@gmail.com.

Avoca West's Boys Night

Thanks to our PTC team heading up this year's Boys Night. They are excited to bring the adventure to our boys (and an accompanying parent) next Friday, the 10th, at Marie Murphy. You can register for the evening's excitement by returning the form to school. You can find a screen shot of the form below that can be printed out as well! All attendees need to complete a waiver - don't forget! I hope you can carve out some time to spend with your boys!

Stay tuned for more information about Girls Night as it approaches.
