    On Friday, October 10, the Avon Education Foundation will hold its annual Freaky Friday fundraiser to support education programs in all twelve of Avon’s schools.  On this day, all students (and staff!) can donate $1.00 to AEF and dress in their craziest school-appropriate attire.  So, go ahead and wear mismatched socks, your most unique look, or even ask to raid your parents’ closet for their freaky clothes.  On Freaky Friday, anything goes and it all goes for a good cause.

She has taken numerous Advanced Placement and honors courses across disciplines and performed strongly in those rigorous classes. Arisa is also a role model for all students with strong leadership skills, integrity and work ethic. We wish her well as she hopefully advances to the next stage of the National Achievement Scholarship Competition.”
