AHS Announcements

  • Last night the #7 ranked boys cross country team won their fourth straight Hendricks County championship, defeating runner-up Danville by 43 points. Leading the way was Keith Abramson, who was the individual runner-up in 16:57 over the 5 kilometer course. Also making the All-County team by placing in the top 10 were Rhys Grealish (3rd place), Jacob Woodrow (4th place), Nyc Sigmon (6th place), and Ethan Goddard (8th place). Ben Schmitt won the reserve race, leading the Orioles to take the top 10 individual places. The win came three days after the Orioles placed second to #3 Fishers in the 18-team Noblesville Hokum Karem on Saturday, where the pair of Woodrow and Grealish placed second overall. The varsity record now stands at 35-1 on the season. Next up will be the Avon Invitational this Saturday at 8:30 a.m., held on the AHS campus.

  • Dear 11th Grade Parents/Guardians,

    Your student received a permission slip to attend our annual Junior Day of Caring. This will take place on Wednesday, September 14th. Though this will be counted as a school day, the learning will take place outside the walls of a traditional classroom. In order to help foster a spirit of integrity, empathy, and civic responsibility, students will work with their peers and teachers to serve the Hendricks County community. AHS partners with the United Way to organize this event. Groups of students and their designated chaperones will be dropped off at various locations such as nursing homes, elementary schools, town libraries, nonprofit organizations, and community parks to volunteer for the day. Lunch will be provided for each student.

    Please sign the permission slip and have your student return it to his/her SRT teacher by Friday, September 2nd. A copy of the permission slip is attached to this e-mail.

    Also attached to this e-mail is a copy of the United Way waiver that the students will sign the day of the field trip.

    Finally, we welcome your participation in this event. If you would like to volunteer to help chaperone, please contact me.

    We hope to count on your support to help 700 AHS juniors make a difference on September 14th.

    Sincerely,


    Kellie Rodkey, Assistant Principal
    KRRodkey@avon-schools.org

    ACSC Partners with Andy Mohr Automotive Group

    Avon Community School Corporation and Andy Mohr Automotive Group announced its new partnership. The 10-year agreement, approved by the Avon School Board of Trustees, names Andy Mohr Automotive (AMAG) as Avon Community School Corporation’s (ACSC) exclusive automotive partner.

    As ACSC’s partner, the outdoor athletic complex at Avon High School will be renamed as the Andy Mohr Athletic Complex. The high school’s gymnasium, aquatics center and fieldhouse will also be renamed. ACSC’s Teacher of the Year program will now be sponsored by the automotive group. In addition, Andy Mohr Automotive will donate vehicles to be used for future fundraisers and a special employee purchase program will be implemented.

    “Avon is an important community to us.  We have hundreds of employees and thousands of customers in Avon,” stated Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Mohr. “We believe that this long-term partnership with Avon Community School Corporation will enhance the lives not only of the students and faculty at Avon, but the entire community, our customers and our future customers.”

    “We are especially grateful for Mr. Mohr’s support of our students and staff,” said ACSC Superintendent Dr. Margaret Hoernemann. “This partnership will enhance what ACSC is able to accomplish in the classroom, on the field and in extracurricular activities.”

    The 10-year commitment includes the following details:

    • Donation of six (6) vehicles over term of agreement for fund-raising raffles
    • A $5,000 teacher grant each year of the agreement
    • Vehicle discount program for ACSC employees
    • Naming rights to the AHS athletic complex and its facilities

    Proceeds from the vehicle raffle sales are expected to push the total value of the partnership in excess of $1 million.

    Andy Mohr Automotive operates 12 franchise automotive dealerships, one heavy-duty truck center and four collision centers in the central Indiana area.  Andrew Mohr was inducted into the Junior Achievement Central Indiana Business Hall of Fame in 2015 and was the 2014 United Way of Central Indiana Campaign Chair, where he led record-setting campaign funding in Hendricks County. Andy Mohr Automotive has helped local non-profit organizations generate more than $1 million in additional funds via car raffles in recent years.

    Avon Community School Corporation (ACSC) offers children high quality educational instruction with a keen focus on improving student achievement.
