    What is it?  Very special items and unique experiences with special appeal to students and families have been donated by Avon Schools & Staff to be auctioned off to help raise funds to support our schools.  Exclusively during the week of April 21-25 only!
    How does it work?  Auction items and bid boxes will be located at each school.  You can bid on multiple items and at multiple schools but all bids are sealed, which means no one knows who the highest bidder is until the auction is over.  Therefore, your bid needs to be the highest to be the winner.  Give it your best shot!

  • 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.
