Avon focuses on kindness with speaker and student council activities.
Bryan Skavnak spoke to students at Avon Elementary about "Be the Nice Kid." Through storytelling, he had students laughing, smiling, and thinking about what they could do to be the nice kid at Avon Elementary. Afterwards, he joined students for recess to play and continue to encourage his message about being the nice kid. Thanks, PTA and Avon Student Council, for supporting Bryan's visit to Avon Elementary.

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!
