  • Announcing K-6 Digital Summer Learning Page!

    The balanced calendar addresses summer loss statistics by reducing time away from school relative to traditional calendars.   
    Two months away from school may still have an impact on all learners, especially younger children.  Keeping your child in a
    routine of learning and exploration is just a click away this summer!  

    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!

       The Avon Education Foundation, with additional support from The Goddard School in Avon, supports a store of free school supplies for Avon’s educators.  Every month, teachers are invited to the ACSC Administration Office to pick up supplies for classroom projects or for students in need. 
       Please join us in stocking our store with school supplies that are currently at their lowest prices of the year.  Your donation of basic supplies like paper, composition notebooks, pencils, glue sticks, scissors, and dry erase markers will supplement AEF’s supply of higher priced items like flash drives, staplers, and electric pencil sharpeners.  Supplies may be dropped off at any Avon school and the Avon Administration Office until August 14th
       If you are interested in more information about the SOS program, please contact Linda Dobbs at ljdobbs@avon-schools.org.  Please visit the AEF link on the Avon Schools home page to learn more about the many ways the Avon Education Foundation supports creativity, innovation, and excellence in our schools.
