Avoca Families, Students & Staff in the News

Avoca District 37’s version of a Giving Tree took the community piece a step further this year. Every family in need was an Avoca family. For the most part, Avoca’s extra-curricular activities, such as school clubs, have been on hiatus in 2020 because of COVID-19. A group of students, however, fought to keep Roots and Shoots, a division of the nationwide service club founded by Jane Goodall, alive during the holidays so they could give back. Read more about how Avoca students, families and staff made a difference during such an unprecedented year, HERE.
