Have you joined the PTA?

Have you joined the PTA?

Half of all parents have not yet joined!  PTA Membership was not included in our Fall Forms this year, so it’s understandable that you may have missed it.

If you have not joined, the flyer below will be coming home with your child this week!  

Please JOIN the PTA by Friday 10/22 to:

  • get a copy of the AV Directory when it comes out in a few weeks
  • help your child earn a chance to win a SPECIAL PRIZE for their class
  • help us top Marengo and MHS in the district contest!  We’re currently behind both schools!

Questions?  Ask PTA Membership Chair  Vivan Tran.


10/22 – Vintage AV Spirit Wear Sign Up Details

Mark your calendars…the link to sign up for your “Vintage” AV Spirit Wear from the Recycling Program last week will be live on Friday, 10/22 at 5:30pm.  Sign ups are taken on a first come first serve basis.  The link will be closed once all items have been claimed.
Thank you to everyone who donated their outgrown Spirit Wear and sharing with our AV Community.  The AV Spirit Wear Recycling Program is going to be an annual event so as your kids grow out of their shirts and sweatshirts, please keep them so you can pass it along to a fellow AV student.

Nominating Committee Selection

At the upcoming PTA General Association meeting on Wed. October 20th, the PTA will be selecting its Nominating Committee, which consists of 5 members and 2 alternates.  The committee is charged with forming a slate of candidates for next year’s Executive Board positions.  (Those on the committee may also be candidates themselves.)  If you are interested in being a potential committee member/alternate, please email Parliamentarian Cindy Shin at [email protected].  Thank you!


 4th Grade Parents Needed! 

Each month, a different grade will be asked to volunteer to keep our drop-off lanes running. Without volunteers, we will have to close the lanes. October is 4th grade month! If you are a 4th grade parent, please, please, please sign up for a day or 3 or 4. We need 4 volunteers per day!   Sign Up HERE.
