ENRICHMENT / Avoca West ITC
Avoca West ITC
The Avoca West ITC is a beloved part of the school. The director, Susan Geidner, teaches a thoughtful, creative curriculum throughout the year. She also creates themes, both tactile and cerebral, that help cultivate the love of reading. She is assisted by Barbara Volgelstein. Click here to link to her home page: http://avoca37.org/geidners/
You may purchase a book to donate to the library to commemorate your child's birthday. A special book plate will be placed inside the book they choose and their picture will be hung on the Birthday Book Club bulletin board in the main hallway of the school.
