Avon Elementary has a new playground! See the pictures and details here.
Our recess time at Avon Elementary has improved greatly with the help of our new playground. Thanks to the support of the school board, our PTA fundraising efforts and Lange Trenching, our playground was constructed on Saturday, August 24. We had an extremely enthusiastic group of parents who participated in our community build! PTA treated the program managers and our parent volunteers with a potluck style lunch to thank them for their efforts. The PTA also has a new basketball court planned; it will be constructed very soon. Please look for pictures in the upcoming Huskie News editions for its completion. We could not have done this without all of you! Thank you! As you can see in the pictures below, our students are extremely grateful and enjoying every moment on their new playground!
Click here to learn about our visit from the Interquest Detection Canines of North Minnesota.
Thanks to Interquest Detection Canines of North Minnesota for sharing valuable information with our learners about how we utilize drug dogs to keep our school safe. They are the nation’s oldest and largest contraband detection and drug dog service provider, celebrating over a quarter of a century of excellence. They have a proven track record in
- ensuring safety and security in schools.
- minimizing the presence of illegal drugs, alcohol, gunpowder based items and weapons, and abused medications.
- working with staff to maximize our deterrence program.
We learned how the dogs are trained, what the dogs are trained to find, and why the dogs are utilized by Albany Area Middle School and High School. These dogs visit our campus three times each year to keep our schools free of unwanted chemicals.
