2023-24 Student Registration 
The deadline for registration for the 2023-2024 school year was May 30, 2023 and has now passed. We still do not have a completed registration for some students. If you have been notified by Beth Haugeberg, please take action as soon as possible. Unsubmitted registrations may affect our ability to schedule your child for classes, assign a classroom teacher, or schedule transportation services. 

If your child will not be attending Avoca next year, please email [email protected] to let us know and we will remove the record from the system so you do not continue to receive these reminder emails.

5th Grade Parent Night
Bus Fees
Transportation fees are being collected for students who will ride the bus next school year. Existing families that have not registered and paid either in full or made a partial payment by July 28 will not be able to add bus service until September 11. For rates and more information, read Ms. Dever's Transportation Letter here

In Case You Missed It: Town Hall on District Facilities
We appreciate those who could join us for either the May 20 or May 23 town hall sessions to discuss Avoca's facilities. If you weren't able to join us, you can view a recording of the presentation here and check out The Record NorthShore's write-up

Avoca West Field Day 
Enjoy one of the last days of the school year outdoors with the Avoca students (K-5th Grade) at the 2023 Avoca West Field Day! Field Day is scheduled for Thursday, June 8 with a rain date of Monday, June 12. We are asking parent volunteers to help organize and monitor the various activities, games, and races that have been set up by the teachers and administration. For more event details or to sign up to volunteer, click here.
Avoca West End-of-Year Pizza Party
Marie Murphy Year-End Party
Help the 6th and 7th graders celebrate the end of the school year on Tuesday, June 13! We still need parent volunteers to help the teachers support party activities, serve lunch, and clean up. There are some slots left to donate food, which can either be dropped off at the school on Monday, June 12 by 3 p.m. or at Mrs. Kundu's residence (email [email protected] for the address) before Monday. Click here for more details or to volunteer.
Summer School Bus for Avoca Students
If your child is registered for the Summer Enrichment Program 2023 and needs to ride the Avoca bus for transportation to and from class, please contact Dawn Scaramuzza in the Student Services Office to obtain the form. Paper copies are also available in the school front offices. All forms are due back to Dawn today, May 31. Questions? Email [email protected] or call 847-728-4142.

Support our MM team and Pay Your Marie Murphy Room Fees Online
We are approaching the end of the year when we say our final thank you to our teachers, staff, bus drivers, and facilities staff on behalf of all MM students and families. We are still collecting funds for room fees to purchase end-of-the-year gifts for our entire MM team. We suggest a $25 donation for each child you have at Marie Murphy. Please use this link to contribute: Marie Murphy Room Fees

2023-2024 School Supply Ordering 
SHOP NOW for your 2023-24 school supplies. Avoid the stores and get all your school supply shopping done online. EPI school supply packs contain all the items and brands our teachers require. Not only is this convenient for you, but it is a fundraiser to help our school. Order now with our School ID of AVO021 or MUR066 HERE

Be sure to order for the grade your child is entering next year. Parents new to Marie Murphy: you must review School Supply Lists for extra items not included in the grade-level packs like gym uniforms, art packs (sold separately) calculators for advanced math and 8th grade, and resource supplies.
