Veteran's Day Breakfast - Coming Up!

We are about to embark on our 10th Annual Veteran's Day Breakfast at Avoca West! Rather than having our students spend the day at home for Veteran's Day, Avoca's students spend their time in school both learning about and honoring veterans and those who have served our country. You'll notice that our School Ambassadors will spend quite a bit of energy prepping our school outside with flags to show a visual "thanks" to our visitors -- and will spend their morning serving them and our guests breakfast as well.


How can you help?! We count on our parents and community members to get the word out and to invite any and all veterans to join us the morning of Friday, November 11th. Doors open at 8:30 and breakfast will be served at 8:50. It is a wonderful opportunity to honor our veterans and to build our community from within!


Please RSVP to Cece or Roxann at (847)724-6800 or benedac@avoca37.org by next Friday. We look forward to packing the place! All are welcome -- Avoca West, Marie Murphy, and beyond!

Intercultural Dinner and Talent Show -- This Friday!

Our 3rd Annual District-Wide Intercultural Dinner & Talent Show will take place at Marie Murphy on Friday, Nov. 4th at 6 pm. Tickets are available at the door for $30/Family. All are encouraged and welcome to sample food from over 20 countries! The Talent Show will begin after dinner at 7 pm.



Good luck to all of our students who will be showcasing their talents for the group!
