Time to Stock up at the Avoca West Book Fair
October 17-20th

Buy books for your student, yourself, holiday gifts or your child's classroom and support the district. In addition to being able to buy books directly for your student's classroom, a portion of the proceeds from the Book Fair will fund Innovation Grants for District teachers and helps the library secure almost 1000 new books each year! 

**Be sure to stop by before or after your teacher conference!**


Clip Box Tops and Kids can win a PJ Day!

Collect Box Tops and turn them in to the PTC mailbox (via your child's backpack) to help raise money for the school!  Student classrooms with the most Box Tops can win a PJ day at school later this fall!! 

Cut the Box Tops as small as possible and place them in Ziploc bags or sealed envelopes of 50 (or less).  Be sure to write your (homeroom) teacher's name on every bag so your class can get credit. Check expiration dates carefully as we cannot turn in expired Box Tops.

PTC Mission Statement

Avoca District 37 Parent Teacher Council (PTC) is a membership* of parents, teachers and staff who are dedicated to fostering the educational, social and overall well-being of each student at Avoca Community Preschool, Avoca West School and Marie Murphy School. We serve these students by promoting a closer working relationship among district families, the school and the community at large.

The purpose of the PTC is to:

  • Offer a forum for ideas, concerns and information
  • Promote parent involvement
  • Provide assistance to teachers through volunteerism
  • Assist administration in communicating school information
  • Sponsor social and educational events for students, families and the community
  • Fund special school programs through a variety of fund-raising events throughout the school year.
*Annual membership dues are $20 per family and help fund programs for all students.
