Dear Avon Parents and Residents: 

It is with much appreciation that I send this message to thank you for your support of the 2015-2016 Town budget.  As I am sure you are aware, the Town of Avon budget, which includes the Board of Education operating budget, was passed at referendum last week and will allow for improvements to our entire community. 

We are fortunate to realize that public education and the numerous town services offered in Avon are valuable resources to all of us. 

As the end of this school year approaches rapidly, I am asking your cooperation and patience as we plan to host the many events and celebrations.  The Avon High School Class of 2015 will participate in the annual commencement ceremony on the evening of June 16th at 5:30pm and the celebration will continue at the traditional Project Graduation hosted at Avon Middle School. 

Please review the website of your child’s school to stay informed of the additional events and activities planned between now and June 16th.

This year and moving forward, we remain steadfast in our commitment to realize the vision established for our district as it is articulated in the district’s Strategic Plan

VISION FOR AVON PUBLIC SCHOOLS (concise version)

Improve culture and climate in all schools
Recognize student and staff achievements
Maintain higher levels of achievement for all students
Integrate current technologies to support instruction
Organize staff resources to support all students
Provide meaningful, relevant professional development for all staff

As always, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (860) 404-4700.

Thank you for your support of the Avon public schools.

I remain very truly yours,

Gary
