This Weekend: Fun Fair 
Join us this Sunday, February 26 from 12-3 PM at Avoca West for the Fun Fair! If you already paid for tickets, the wristbands will go home with your child this Wednesday. If you bought multiple wristbands, your older child will come home with the wristband. Wristbands will also be sold at the door on Sunday. The Fun Fair will be a great time for everyone, featuring a variety of balloon animals, games, the Frog Lady, snacks, and more!

Silent Auction
Be sure to check out the new category in the Silent Auction called "Did You See This." Browse through and place your bids online and at the live silent auction during the Fun Fair this weekend. The auction, which has currently raised $53,007.50, was recently featured in The Record NorthShore and Fox32 Chicago!

We still need volunteers to help put on the largest school event of the year, the 2023 Avoca West Fun Fair! Whether it's for an hour or 3, your time and help are greatly appreciated and play a large role in making the event run smoothly and successfully. Click here to Volunteer.

This Friday: Marie Murphy Volleyball Tournament 
Marie Murphy 6th, 7th & 8th graders are invited to take part in the 2023 Marie Murphy Volleyball Tournament, which will be held from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. this Friday, February 24 in the MM school gym. Students can sign up individually or organize a team of 6-10 players (co-ed allowed). The cost is $15 per player (includes a slice of pizza) and registration/payment should be turned into the front office or given directly to Mr. Henley. If registering a team, one team member should register and pay for the entire team.

Concessions, including snacks, pizza, and drinks, will be available for purchase (cash only), as well as raffle prizes (tickets cash only). The tournament will benefit the MM 8th Grade Graduation. All D37 Families are welcome to attend! 

Upcoming Author Visit at Avoca West
The Book Stall in Winnetka is bringing author Tim Fite to speak with Avoca 1st & 2nd graders on Thursday, March 9 about his new picture book, A Bucket of Questions!

Why do kids lose their teeth?
Why do seals clap?
What is at the bottom of the ocean?

Artist and musician Tim Fite is here to answer your most important questions—and then some!—in this marvelously wacky, utterly imaginative, and irreverently playful picture book.

A printed order form for personalized, signed copies of the book will be sent home with students this week. In addition, you may order a copy online here. All orders are due by Monday, March 6.
