February 2021

Winter is in full force!

Avilla Families,


Our parent/teacher conferences are scheduled for February 18 from 3:00 - 7:00 pm. Conferences must be scheduled in advance. For winter conferences we do not require that all parents have a scheduled meeting. If you would like to meet with your child's teacher and have not yet scheduled a time, please reach out to them.


This week has been a reminder that winter weather is very unpredictable. Thank you for supporting your child(ren) during unplanned eLearning days. I am hopeful that future weeks in the month ahead allow us to be in school more frequently. Please let us know if you have any positive feedback that we can celebrate.


Sincerely,


Jeff Harper

Principal

The Book Fair is Arriving Soon!

We are happy to announce that we will be having a book fair this year! More details about our fair will roll out soon. This year's fair will be conducted a bit differently in order to meet COVID-19 guidelines. Books will arrive in cases as they have in the past. Each class will have a browsing time with the books. They will then bring home "wish lists" that will have specific books and prices that parents can then decide on with their student. Think of this as a take out order at a restaurant. Once money is returned with the order created with parent help, a staff member will gather the items and bag them for classroom delivery.


Our book fair dates are February 22 - March 3. We will be providing specific shopping dates per grade level soon.

Avilla Apparel Store

We have partnered with Betty Lou Designs to offer our Avilla families many apparel items to purchase online. These items feature our winning logo design from a current fifth grade student! Here is the store link: https://avilla-2021.itemorder.com/sale

Kindergarten Round Up

We are holding Kindergarten round up on Wednesday, April 21 from 5:30 to 7:00. Please mark your calendars for this event if you have a child that will be entering Kindergarten next year. More details will be shared on our website and social media sites soon.

Preschool Interest for next year

Our preschool program will also be conducting interest surveys in the near future. We hope to couple our February survey with a follow up in person event as well. More details will be shared soon.

PTO Meeting

The next meeting will take place on Monday, February 8 at 3:30 pm in our school library. Please enter at door 1.


**If any meeting is cancelled due to a school cancellation, the make up meeting date is automatically scheduled for the next Monday that school is in session.

Car Line Procedures

Door 2 opens daily at 7:50 (8:35 on Mondays) and we dismiss at 2:45. Here are some tips to help you save time in the car line:


  • Arriving early and waiting will most likely take more of your time than showing up closer to our doors open and dismissal time. We need everyone to show up closer to our advertised times in order to lessen traffic on streets close to the school.
  • Preschool parents should be the only people in our car line before 2:30. Our preschool parents pick up around 2:10 and have been blocked by people waiting for our 2:45 dismissal. Please help us by keeping the car line open for preschool pickup. These students need the most help with car pickup and a clear line really helps.
  • Please do not park your car and walk across the street to greet your child. When you remain in your car it helps us to worry less about pedestrians and takes less time to get students to where they need to be.
