The name is Panthers.... Avilla Panthers

They call us Avilla Panthers.... but what set's us apart and makes us different? Here are some things that come to mind:


  • Live and Let Learn
  • We shake things up... not stir them up
  • "Shocking, Positively Shocking"
  • "My dear friends, there are some things that just aren't done. Such as drinking Dom Perignon '53 above the temperature of 38 degrees. That's just as bad as no food on Payday Friday...
  • We are centered on OUR kids
  • We have a sharp and focused vision on success for all, inclusive of staff, parents, and most importantly, students
  • Avilla Memories are Forever
  • Collaboration is THE way we work.
  • " Why Mrs. Flowers, what happened to Miss Moneypenny?"
  • ISTEP Security... For Your Eyes Only...
  • The most important letter in the alphabet is "Q"

Retelling----We have had many teachers ask about what to do when a student is retelling fiction but the story has no problem or solution, so I am sending this out to everyone. Becca send Kari and me this information.


In this case, listen for the child to tell the important details in the story. The information that is not available in the story should not negatively impact a retell score. You may use the important details to help you obtain a score in this area. Becca advises that teachers may also use the highest score in these areas where the information is not available.

-Great job on Wednesday’s fire drill- Over 400 students out of the building and accounted for in 3 minutes!

-Please look over the school map that is in your mailbox. Note where some fire pull alarms, fire extinguishers and the defibrillator are located in the building.

-Fire Drill Scenario: Your normal teacher with a radio is not at your location because their exit is blocked. What do you do?

-Do your students know what to do if they are in the hallway alone when the fire alarm is pulled?

-Please make sure that substitute teachers that are in your classroom know what the thumbs are for and what our fire drill procedures are.
