  • Avon Middle School North and South Students Chosen for Indiana All-Region Junior Band

    Seven students from Avon Middle School North and eight students from Avon Middle School South were nominated to be a part of the 35th Annual Indiana All-Region Junior High Band. This special band consists of students from 22 schools around Metro-Indianapolis. These students were selected from among 250 students nominated by their band directors.

    Following several rehearsals, the students performed in a special concert in November at Brownsburg High School. The performers were led by guest conductor Mr. Daniel Pritchett, the long-time band director of Valparaiso High School Bands. Students played approximately six tunes in varying styles and genres ranging from concert marches to Broadway musical selections.

  • Avon Schools to Receive a Grant for Propane School Buses

    ACSC is pleased to receive a grant from the IN Office of Energy Development (OED)! We will receive $33,414 and plan to purchase eight school buses that will go into service next year. Please see the OED news release below for additional information.

    Indiana schools receive state grant for propane school buses
    Seven public school corporations to add 49 propane-fueled school buses

    INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) today announced that seven Indiana public school corporations will receive $275,430 from the OED’s 2015 Indiana Propane School Bus (PSB) grant program.

    This is OED’s first grant specifically dedicated to propane school buses. The participating schools will benefit from propane school buses in a variety of ways, including decreasing schoolchildren’s exposure to harmful particulate matter, lowering maintenance costs through the use of a cleaner burning fuel and increasing fuel diversity.

    The winning school corporations include:
    • Avon Community School Corporation
    • DeKalb County Central United School District
    • Metropolitan School District of Warren Township
    • Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township
    • North Spencer County School Corporation
    • Tippecanoe School Corporation
    • Warrick County School Corporation

    “Improved engine technologies have made propane a low-cost option for Indiana’s school bus fleet,” said OED Director Tristan Vance. “At OED, we believe that propane is a promising alternative fuel for school buses because it is widely available, even in rural areas, and traditionally costs less than diesel or gasoline.”

    OED intends for recipients to track their miles driven, fuel usage and cost savings for one year after the buses are first put in use. This data can help the recipients and their communities and peers to better understand their fueling options.

    PSB projects must involve the purchase of a minimum of two new propane school buses. The winning schools must have access to propane fueling infrastructure or show that they will have access if they are awarded a grant. OED expects participants to demonstrate their need for this project and how this project will benefit the applicant’s school corporation.

    Quarterly reports, including expenditures and fuel savings, will be due to OED starting January 2016 and occur for one year.

    Six AHS Students Named as Semifinalists in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program

    Officials of National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 61st annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,400 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring. The AHS students are: Samantha Branham, Michael Campbell, Alyssa Corpus, Alyssa Fales, Angelina Shi and Brady Zeller.

    To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.

    NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 440 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

    National Merit Scholarship winners of 2016 will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April and concluding in July. These scholarship recipients will join more than 315,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar title.
