Avonworth School District Holiday Card
With so much artistic talent in our school district, we always enjoy having one of our students create the artwork for our annual holiday card. Thank you to Nico Watts (Kindergarten) for your beautiful artwork and for allowing us to use it for this year's holiday card! Thank you to high school graphic arts teacher, Mrs. Shelby James, for adding the border and text to Nico's incredible artwork!
Holiday Message from Dr. Ralston
Holiday Concerts and Performances
Did you really think the pandemic would keep our amazing music and choral programs from producing wonderful holiday performances for all of us to enjoy? Nothing can keep our talented band and choral directors and students from sharing their talent and hard work.
Elementary Band Director, Mr. Ronnie Ziccardi is thrilled to share the Avonworth Elementary Virtual Winter Band Concert featuring members of our 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade bands!
Mr. Ziccardi encourages everyone to make it a special night for the students when you watch the concert. Gather everyone up in your household, play the concert on the biggest laptop/device in your house (or on your TV if you can), eat some tasty snacks, drink some hot chocolate, and enjoy! Please feel free to share the concert video with loved ones, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and more!
Please watch the entire concert (below); especially for some heartfelt messages near the end.
