The Avoca West READ-A-THON is Underway!

Prizes will be awarded this Friday January 20th for EVERY STUDENT who returns their read-a-thon time card bookmark.  Students can bring their completed bookmark to the cafeteria during lunch as their 'ticket' to grab from one prize bucket of either Disney Tsum-Tsums, Emojis, Pokemon cards or Bouncy Balls!  Help us reward your reader by reminding your student to bring in their bookmark!  Remember ALL reading outside of school counts towards minutes read!

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.
