Wrapping Up a Wonderful 2016!
It's hard to believe that we are weeks away from putting 2016 in the books. I continue to count myself blessed to spend each day here with your children and the incredible staff and families. Thank you for sharing these moments with me and for your collaborative spirit!
We are always looking for ways to keep parents in the loop on the many happenings at Avoca West, so I encourage you all to look for a way to follow us on social media. We are on:
I'm still experimenting with trying to get one post to show up in multiple places, but hope that the pictures and updates will bring a smile to your faces in the new year as well!
I hope you find the two weeks ahead restful and restorative for your spirit. Thanks for all you do!
5Es Survey -- PARENT INPUT NEEDED!
Safety Reminders for Avoca West Families
- All visitors should enter through the front doors. Although we do not require visitors to wear a badge after 3:00, parents still need to go through the front office so that we know who is in the building. Please do not enter through the kindergarten doors.
- When the "feels like" temperature is 9 degrees or less, we will be inside for recess. The temperature is checked at the time that lunch/recess begins, so please plan ahead and pack winter gear if it seems there is a chance that students will go outside. Our PE teachers take students outside as well when possible. That movement and fresh air makes a big difference!
- Please be mindful of all of the comings and goings at Avoca each morning and afternoon. With the temperatures cooling down (understatement), more parents are dropping off and picking up. Please pay close attention to the stop sign (and Mr. Cruz!) and wait your turn in line to drop off. Driving around creates a precarious situation for our students who are exiting and entering the cars. Thanks!
Don't forget to stop by the Avoca PTC website for updated information and dates to put on your calendar as well. There are many exciting events going on -- including our Spirit Wear sales!!
