  • K-6 Digital Summer Learning Page Available for Avon Families

    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! 

    Here's the link to Digital Summer Learning Page: http://www.avon-schools.org/Page/7693

A Message from Superintendent Hoernemann

Closing Out 2015-16

Whew! Another one for the books. 

As we close the 2015-16 school year, we do so with a mix of relief, gratitude, excitement, melancholy, and joy.  By any measure, this has been a tremendous year for the Avon Community School Corporation. The Class of 2016 has set an incredibly high standard of achievement. They were in part responsible for: 

 

  • Our first Robotics Club State Championship—this from a group that has only been in existence for 5 years. Our emphasis on STEM K-12 continues. Whether your child is in kindergarten, fifth grade or high school, ask him/her what’s happening in science and you will likely be astounded.
  • $23.8 million in scholarship offers. During this time of concerns about the high cost of college education, these scholarships are life changers.
  • A commitment to service to the community exemplified by the 2016 Lip Dub  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XIjWA7m4vQ&feature=youtu.be If you haven’t seen it, we dare you to watch it without a tear in your eye, goosebumps on your arms, and a sense that high school students are truly amazing when their creativity is unleased and yet supported by dedicated educators.
  • The music accomplishments were stunning. AHS Marching Black and Gold won the 2015 State Championship (12 state titles in 14 years; and three national titles). Avon World Drumline won its fourth consecutive State Championship. AHS Indoor named 2016 WGI World Champions; and won the IPA State Championship. AHS Wind Symphony won the 2016 Indiana State Concert Band Championship. Our Orchestra placed third at the ISSMA state contest and our Mixed Choir was a finalist. This only happens as a result of amazing K-12 music teachers, a supportive community and families who understand the importance of excellence.
  • Five AHS students won IHSAA State Championship Swimming Titles (100 Breaststroke; 200 Medley Relay; and 200 Free Relay) in 2016
  • Our standardized test scores as reflected on IREAD (99%) and ISTEP reveal continued strong academic performance. ACSC ranked 23rd of 289 public school districts passing both sections of ISTEP in 2015

 

The list of accomplishments could be quite a bit longer, but nothing ever truly measures the human experience like the stories shared at the dinner table or while talking before bedtime.  Ask your child, what was the best about this school year?  No doubt his/her answers will mention a dedicated teacher, a fabulous bus driver, a wonderful coach.  Rest assured, parents, we know that the year was a fabulous one in large measure because of you. 

People often ask me what’s so special about Avon. My answer is always: You! You educators, you students, you parents, you community members are the secret sauce that make Avon a great place to work and learn. Thank you!

Best wishes,

Margaret Hoernemann
