  • AHS Homecoming 2014

    Avon High School will NOT be having a homecoming dance this year. Instead, we will be hosting a school-wide tailgate prior to the homecoming football game on Friday, September 26th from 4:30 to 6:45 pm. This tailgate is aimed to unite the school in a fun and new event that has not been done before. We are hoping for a large turnout from students 9th through 12th grade, and the tailgate will only be open to Avon High School Students (no guests). Admission to the tailgate will be a 15 dollar t-shirt that is for sale in the Avon High School Ozone, and on the Avon High School website (ozone link). The $15 t-shirt will give students access to the following:

    -          Radio Now 100.9 live broadcast (contests and free concert giveaways)

    -          City BBQ (sandwich and tea)

    -          Corn-hole tournament and other games

    -          Opportunity to purchase Ice Barn Snow Cones

    -          Entrance to the Football game

    -          Free admission to 5 other athletic events throughout the week.

     

              When purchasing the t-shirt, a ticket will be distributed that will be able to be used for admission to the additional sports games so the t-shirt will not have to be worn each time. If t-shirts are purchased online, the student will need to go to the ozone during school to pick up their ticket. If you have any questions, please email:
