OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Avon Public Schools 34 SIMSBURY ROAD AVON, CONNECTICUT 06001 TEL: (860) 404-4700 email@example.com Gary S. Mala SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS Weekly Message May 16, 2014 Dear Avon Parents and Residents: It is with much gratitude and appreciation that I send this message to thank you for your support of the 2014-2015 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 this past Wednesday evening. As the work in schools concludes for this school year over the next few weeks, we look forward with optimism for all that will be made possible during the next school year. The approved budget continues to support a number of initiatives that contribute greatly to our excellent public school system and the students whom we have the responsibility to serve. We are fortunate to realize that public education and the numerous town services offered in Avon are valuable resources to our community. 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 and all of us who serve the needs of students and families each day. I remain very truly yours, Gary Gary S. Mala Superintendent of Schools

Avon Summer Theater Programs (District)
Registration now open for Avon Summer Theater Programs The Avon Public School’s Summer Theater Program offers a fun-filled theater experience for students presently in grades 1-12. The Junior Theater Workshop is developed especially for the elementary/middle school age student (present grades 1-7). This program takes students from the rehearsal process to the performance in two weeks. This summer, students will be presenting The Wizard of Oz. Workshop dates are July 7-18th with a performance for friends and family on July 18th at 11:00 am at Thompson Brook School, Avon. Avon Summer Theater (AST), for students presently in grades 8-12, offers interested students the opportunity to present a full scale Broadway musical, this summer, Rent, School Edition. This adaptation of Rent for high school performers retains the dramatic intent of the groundbreaking rock musical, and consists of some changes to language and the removal of one song ("Contact"). Avon Summer Theater offers two components, onstage as well as behind the scenes. Cast and crew meet daily beginning June 30th, with performances at Avon High School, July 24-27th. Both programs are open to Avon residents as well as residents of the surrounding towns. For more information about both programs, as well as registration forms, please see our website www.avonsummertheater.com.
