  • Laptops and the Family Contract

    The students are SO EXCITED about receiving their laptops.  They have each been assigned a homework assignment from Mrs. Shayotovich and Mr. Bates.  This assignment is to complete a Family Contract with their parent about using their device at home.  We spent 45 minutes in each classroom reviewing the expectations at school and helping them develop the responsibility of having a device.  We now ask that you please take time to establish your expectations and routines for the device AT HOME.  

    Feel free to use this PowerPoint to help guide the conversation with your student, there is audio to help start the discussion of each item.  

    When you are finished, please return a signed copy to your child's teacher.  We will send a copy home for you to refer to throughout the school year as well.  Thank you for your support!

    Students were given a copy of the contract, but you can find another here if needed.

    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. More than 9,300 students are served in grades Pre-K-12 in 12 schools (seven elementary; two intermediate; two middle and one high school). ACSC operates on a balanced calendar schedule.

    Avon High School Teacher Chris Hill was named Avon Community School Corporation’s Teacher of the Year for 2015-16. The announcement came during an all-employee Back-to-School Celebration. He was chosen by a committee comprised of community members. 

    Mr. Hill has taught in Avon for 10 years, currently teaching Engineering Technology and is also a Project Lead the Way teacher. He sponsors the Avon Robotics Club which was the recipient of a NASA Grant, earned a State Championship and had a Top 50 Robot in the World winner.

An annual $5,000 award will be distributed among the District Teacher of the Year and other finalists. Mr. Mohr presented Chris Hill with a crystal award and check. Mr. Hill also received a gift from the Sharon Pinnick Educational Fund, (Hendricks County Community Foundation) and the Avon Rotary Club.
