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 students.
