District Information, Event Details, and Volunteer Opportunities 

Family Open Gym

The sign up for Family Open Gym has been overwhelmingly positive! A couple friendly reminders:
  • Additional slots have been added! To sign up for any remaining open slots, go here.
  • If you have already signed up for a slot, please allow other families to sign up for the new spots. 
  • If you signed up for more than one spot, please delete your extra sign ups so at least everyone who wants to do so can have at least one session with their own family. 
We look forward to adding slots in the first weeks of January. Hope to see you there!

Innovation Grants Donation Drive
In order to support as many Innovation Grants as possible this year, the Avoca PTC is appealing directly to you to support its Innovation Grant Program and asking that each family consider giving  whatever they can. Donations go directly towards Innovation Grants. We thank you in advance for your serious consideration in helping fund this year’s innovative faculty projects that will enhance our district’s academic enterprise. DONATE HERE. 

Silent Auction Drive
Due to COVID-19, the annual Silent Auction Fundraiser will take place all online! We are kindly requesting that you - or someone you know - consider donating merchandise, services or gift certificates to the 2020 Auction. Your contribution not only provides your business with targeted exposure to the patrons within our school district but more importantly, is an excellent way to build goodwill with the Avoca Community. Learn more and donate here.
