Avon East Monthly News

June 2023

Hi East Families!

Wow~ How is it the end of the school year?! I can't thank you enough for your unconditional support. The best part of Avon East is feeling like a giant family- which makes these summer "goodbyes" so hard!

For our second grade families, we wish you the best as you move to Heritage. My hope is you have fond memories of your time here with us and will always have a piece of East in your heart. I know you'll have a wonderful experience for the next three years! First grade families, we hope you are eager to return to our East family in August for one final year together.

June will be eerily quiet in the building without little eagle voices and I'll miss every minute of not seeing students each day. May your summer be filled with memories, laughter, and lots of fun! Enjoy your time together!

It has been my absolute pleasure to be your child's Principal this year!

With gratitude,

Ms. Erin Holzhauer, Principal

Important Information for BUS RIDERS on our last day!

Avon East has a long-standing tradition where we hold ALL buses on the last day until every student has been loaded. Then, our entire staff lines Nagel Road to wave goodbye to the beeping school buses as students wave back to us from their windows. It's a tradition that we absolutely cherish and hope to continue doing for years to come.

Due to holding buses, I want to prepare you that students will be late on this day getting home. We expect all buses to depart East around 3:50pm.

If you do not want to wait for your child on the bus, you're welcome to send in a note for car rider instead!

Lost & Found

We still have so much in our lost & found. Please consider asking your child to look for any lost items they haven't found. You're also welcome to come up anytime to look through our piles as well :)

On our last day, we will be donating any items that haven't been claimed.

Summer Office Hours

Our East office will be open 9-2 through June 21st and again starting August 1st. Our summer staff works throughout the building so please leave a message if your call is not answered and we will get back to you.

School Supply Kits from Boosters!

Don't forget to order your school supply kit! This year if you really want to save money on back-to-school supplies, order your kit from 1st Day School Supplies.

1st Day School Supplies secured their inventory in the fall, saving our school up to 30% off over those big box stores, all while offering the brand names you trust and respect like Ticonderoga, Elmer's, Fiskars, and Clorox. Order your 1st Day School Supplies kit early and save yourself time and money this year! A portion of the proceeds from each supply kit ordered goes to AELC/East Boosters! Order by July 1st!

Important forms for moving

Please use this link to access important forms for any moves you may make over the summer- change of address or release of records/withdrawal. Please call our office with any questions and we will help guide you if you are moving out of Avon. Completing these forms helps us make sure that your new school receives all information they need before the school year starts!

Office reminders- Early Dismissals

We ask that if you are picking your child up from the front office at 3:15 or earlier that it be for appointments or emergencies only. Otherwise, please use our car rider line. Depending on where you are at in line, children exit the building from 3:25-3:40. It really is a smooth process :) Please write your teacher a note for the office staff and be sure you have a car rider tag. If you forget to write a note- you can call our main office and the secretaries will take your name down and ask you join the car rider line for pick-up- please have your ID ready. If you need a car tag, we can send one home with your child- just write a note and send in $1 to your teacher.

As a reminder, please have your ID ready when using our front office. Our staff will be asking for IDs any time that your child leaves our building with an adult. Thank you for your cooperation!
