The AHS PTO Board is very excited about the upcoming 2018-19 school year. We invite you to join us in fulfilling our mission to enhance and enrich Avon High School students’ four-year experience through quality programming and community engagement.
PTO membership can take many forms: providing financial support, attending meetings, and/or volunteering to help with or lead a program or event.
Even before the first day of this school year, the PTO was hard at work supporting AHS’s signature event, GO Avon. On Monday, August 27th, incoming freshmen and transfer students were welcomed to Avon High School in style at GO Avon, an exciting orientation program launched 4 years ago that changes the way we introduce students to AHS. This event is made possible every year with the help from the PTO and many AHS upperclassmen.
Come hear more about our plans for 2018-19 and share your own ideas with us at one of our member meetings, held monthly in the AHS Community Room on the following dates:
September 7th @ 7:45 AM
December 7th @ 7:45 AM
March 1st @ 7:45 AM
October 5th @ 7:45 AM
January 8th @ 7:00 PM
April 2nd @ 7:00 PM
November 6th @ 7:00 PM
February 1st @7:45 AM
May 3rd @ 7:45 AM
We look forward to an exciting school year and hope you will join us in our efforts to make it a great one for all Avon High School students.
The Avon High School PTO Mission is…
to work with AHS parents, guardians, faculty and staff to enhance the experience of AHS students by providing quality, enriching educational programs; creating open lines of communication; and facilitating the involvement of all parties in the planning and execution of school programs and events. The organization strives to:
- encourage an exchange of ideas and information among educators, parents/guardians, and students through meetings, print and e-communications, and events.
- promote interest and awareness of the AHS curriculum, facilities, staff, and community through regular meetings and communications.
- raise funds to financially support programs, resources, services, and equipment (not covered by the Board of Education budget) that enrich students’ school experience.
The AHS PTO is administered by an executive committee and all of its meetings are open to the public. Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to attend meetings to share ideas, suggestions and/or concerns. All money raised by the PTO is invested in school programs and resources.
