Yearbooks On Sale Now - Order Now!

This has not been a normal school year, but it is definitely one that our students will remember! We will be capturing this time in history for them with our Auburn yearbook. We invite you to order your yearbook online at and use the Yearbook ID Code: 5933521. The deadline to order is April 19th. Don't miss out!

We need Your Help with Our Yearbook!

We need your help! With the school year starting off remotely (and now continuing remotely), we have no fun photos of our students to include in the 2020-2021 yearbook. We still want to have fun memories of this school year that include our amazing students! It would also be a great way to include pictures of your children if you were not able to attend Picture Day.

Below will be a google link for you to attach pictures of your children. There is a folder for each grade, Leadership, Girl Scouts, and Spirit Week. Please send any photos you have to these various folders. We can’t guarantee that we can use all the photos shared with us, but we will do our best to include as many as we can.

If you’re unable to attach your photo, please feel free to email a copy of the photo to or with your child's name and which grade or group you would like the picture to be added.

Here is the link to the folders, please place your photo in the proper folder.

Thank you for helping us create memories of this most unexpected school year.

Student-Centered District School Calendar 2021-22

After months of work and collaboration with stakeholders around the Avondale School District, we have developed our calendar for the 2021-2022 school year.

While adhering to government mandates and myriad other details, the calendar reflects our commitment to student and staff growth. It contains opportunities for student remediation and enrichment through staff-provided intersessions that we feel will help reverse the academic losses that may have occurred for some students over the past year. The new calendar also honors our commitment to our staff members to provide opportunities for them to advance their teaching skills and enhance their content knowledge in the ever-changing world of education.

The new calendar is considered student-centered but we feel that it really is learning community-centered as it is designed to create an environment conducive to a healthy and intentional educational experience for all.

If you are interested in participating in a committee to discuss and plan intersession and enrichment opportunities for our students please fill out the form at this link: Intersession Planning Committee Interest Form.

The new calendar is attached to this email so that you can begin to plan your coming months. Barring any surprise mandates from the state or the occurrence of national or global events that may interrupt our 2021-2022 school year, there should be little to no changes to it.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
