    The Avon Education Foundation recently provided more than $11,000 to fund various reading, literacy and remediation programs in Avon schools, thanks to the community’s generous donations to AEF.  This school year, AEF allocated $500 per elementary and $1,000 per intermediate school for the "Sustaining, Differentiating, and Improving Literacy Instruction" program that enables principals andteachers to meet the unique literacy needs of each school's students.  Atthe middle school level, AEF has provided funding for the After School Assistance Program (ASAP) where teachers focus on improving students’ studyskills.

    Find out how AEF is supporting reading programs at your school by visiting our website www.avoneducationfoundation.org.

    The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art held a contest for students this October called, “You Make It Happen.”  Students were to create works of art that reflected something that they learned about the American Southwest from social studies or history.  They had to interpret this information in the form of a unique or original piece of art.  Two of our students from Intermediate East won 2nd and 3rd place in the contest for their ceramic tile paintings of Native Americans.  They worked after school for several weeks to complete this assignment. Congratulations to these two talented young men:

     

    2nd Place: Kevin Rostam, 5th Grade, Avon Intermediate School East
    3rd Place: Darin Rostam, 5th Grade, Avon Intermediate School East

  • AvonEducation Foundation awards $1265.98 to Avon teachers. 

    Congratulationsto all six AEF " Fast Track" grant recipients.   FastTrack grants are for classroom supplies or educational program support ofless than $250 and constitute the first round of grants approved by the Avon Education Foundation (AEF) during each semester.  Second round "traditional" grants may be for as much as $3000 per applicant and are currently under review by the AEF grants committee.  Certified staff in all 12 schools may apply.  In some cases, one award winner is reported but multiple buildings benefit.  For example, Maple Elementary's Ms. Samide is listed, but books purchased for the new Parent Book Club may benefit all elementary schools and parents who join the book club. Pictured here is Mr. Leake (Maple Elementary) with his students, just after telling them about the great books that would be purchased for them using AEF grant money.  They were so excited they stood up and clapped! Other grant winners include Avon High School's Mr. Osterman, Ms. Garland and Mrs. Rohrbach and AIS East's Ms. Fluharty.

    AEF connects private support to public education needs in the Avon community and is uniqueas the only non-profit (501c3) organization supporting academic needs in all 12 of Avon's public schools.  This is only possible throughtax-deductible donations to AEF.  Last year the Avon Education Foundation provided $66,257 in grant and educational support to Avon schools.  However, due to budget cuts, requests for assistance are already up this year which means meeting those needs, requests, and goals will only be possible with the help of others.  Tax-deductible donations to AEF are always welcome at 7203 E. US Hwy 36, Avon IN, 46123, are much appreciated, and will benefit literally thousands of Avon's public school children. Thank you! 

     
    Mrs. Fluharty received 227.07 for dictionary/thesaurus combination books entitled "The Class who Loved Words."

  • 2014-15 Calendar Survey

    After a very unusual winter, we are seeking input from students, staff, and parents about possible minor revisions to the already approved, already published 2014-15 school calendar.  
     
    The existing 2014-15 calendar allows for two snow make-up days:
                Monday, January 19, 2015 (Martin Luther King Day)
                Monday, February 16, 2015 (Presidents' Day) 
     
    If more than two make-up days are needed, they would be added to the end of the year.
     
    (This year we had five make-up days.  One was waived, two made up on the above holidays, and two will be made up on June 2nd and 3rd.)
     
    Please provide your opinion about possible changes to the 2014-15 calendar:
     

    This survey will be active, online from April 7 to April 21st, 2014.  Upon review of the results, the administration and Board may consider changes to the 2014-15 calendar.
