A lot can happen over the course of a school year, especially in a growing, active, successful school corporation like Avon. We have compiled a list of just a few of the many academic, artistic, athletic, and teacher/leader highlights that have happened since last July, and you can access them all on our website. Prepare to be impressed; our students, educators, administrators, and support staff had an awesome year!


For the first time in Avon High School's history, a Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) student has won a National Championship. Esther Bankole-Brown won first place for Employability Skills at the National JAG conference. JAG is a dynamic partnership between Avon Schools and the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD). DWD employs JAG instructors and oversees the program, providing a cost-effective way for AHS to offer excellent opportunities to deserving students like Esther.


The Avon Board of School Trustees is one of only two Indiana school boards to earn the 2023 Exemplary Governance Award from the Indiana School Boards Association. This award recognizes their outstanding commitment to professional learning and student success. Congratulations for earning this honor, and thank you for representing our students, staff, and community so well!


Win, lose, or draw, Avon students never fail to impress. We're always proud of our 11,000 students' determination, growth, and success. Sometimes — often, lately, as you'll see in today's issue of Oriole Blast — all that hard work translates into awards and recognition. 
Read on to see just a few of the many ways Avon students are winning. Join us in expressing your pride as they continue to strive for more.

It takes a village — in our case A Village Of Neighbors (AVON) — for a school corporation to succeed. In Avon Schools, we are grateful for the incredible support we receive, not only from our 11,000 students' families, but from community and business leaders, senior citizens, religious leaders, and more.
