Fire Safety Visits -- This Friday!
In honor of Fire Safety Month, our Glenview Firemen will come to visit and talk with students this Friday. Students and parents are encouraged to continue the conversation at home around developing an plan in case of an emergency. You can find a copy of two of the handouts from the Fire Department linked below.
Looking to give back? Here are a couple of ideas!
Calling all Box Tops! Did you know that each Box Top can give up to 10 cents back to Avoca. That may not sound like a lot, but things add up quickly...and go right back into the classroom! During the month of October, we will be having a Box Top Challenge. The classroom that collects the most Box Tops will win the chance to wear PJs all day November 1st -- a worthy prize after many of our kiddos will be out the evening before gathering goodies!
