  • SOS List
    School Supplies Needed
     
    The first day of school is right around the corner. When you shop for school supplies, pick up a few extras for the AEF Supply Our Schools program. Supplies will be used by Avon's teachers for classroom projects and for students in need. All supplies are appreciated, but the most requested items can be found on this list. School supplies are at their lowest prices of the year, so even a few dollars will go a long way toward supplying Avon's classrooms.
     
    Thank you!

    For this reason, the Digital Summer Learning Page is being provided to our families to promote continuous learning throughout the summer months.  A wealth of resources may be accessed through the ACSC website and do not require an ACSC student login. Make summer learning sizzle and boost your child’s learning confidence by engaging in these fun activities!
