Fun Fair is Back!
Fun Fair is back! On February 27, 2022, Avoca will be holding its annual Fun Fair. Avoca West will be transformed into a carnival-like atmosphere with games in the classrooms, music, fun activities, food, raffles, and a silent auction for parents. This is the largest event at the school each year and we depend on a lot of volunteers to make this awesome event happen! If you would like to be a part of the planning committee for this event, please contact Erin Loder at [email protected] as soon as possible. More to follow!
