A message from Avon Grove’s Safety and Security Department:
We would like to inform you that Avon Grove High School will be conducting a full-scale intruder exercise on Friday, March 17, 2023, as part of our ongoing efforts to improve our emergency response plans and ensure the safety of our students and staff.
During the exercise, you may see emergency responders, including law enforcement, fire and rescue personnel, and school administrators, on and around the school campus. Please do not be alarmed, as this is only an exercise and there is no actual emergency.
We believe that it is important to prepare our staff for emergency situations and to practice our response plans in a realistic setting. By conducting this exercise, we can identify areas for improvement and ensure that we are well-prepared to protect our students and staff in the event of a real emergency.
We ask for your cooperation and understanding during this exercise. Thank you for your support in helping us maintain a safe and secure learning environment.
Penn London's next security drill is Tuesday, March 21st.
The transportation department has asked us to remind families that toys should not be out on buses. Please talk with your student to remind them to keep all belongings in their backpacks during the bus ride.
Hope to see you at Multicultural Night at 6:00pm!
Mrs. Harrison, Principal
Mrs. Hall, Assistant Principal
One of the ways Mrs. Bollacker's kindergarten class celebrated Read Across America Week was by reading Eric Carle's Pancakes Pancakes! They decided to top off their celebration by cooking pancakes in the classroom. They voted and officially agree with the main character Jack that the best way to eat pancakes is with both syrup and jam! Students are currently writing their own books that explain how to make pancakes. If you are in the building for conferences, stop by Room 103 to see their final projects!
PBIS and Bucket Filling
Our next goal and reward has been set by our first graders! We are now working to earn 8,000 bucket bucks and when we do the whole school will earn extra play time! Talk with your student this weekend about how they can earn bucket bucks in school and on the bus by taking care of themselves, each other, and our school.
A big thank you to all the PTA volunteers, high school students and community organizations who help make this fantastic event possible!
Mark your calendars for the Spring Book Fair! Student shopping days will be March 7-14. We will also be open during Multicultural Night on Friday, March 10 6-8pm.
