AV Spring Book Fair Recap

Our Spring Book Fair and Story Night were a huge success. We raised over $3,000 for the AV Library Program! Big thanks to all the volunteers who made it happen. Special thanks to our book fair coordinators, Jenn Koca, Kelly Kwan, and Sherry Hatamiya, and our amazing librarian, Mrs. Baydaline!.

3rd AV Dines Recap

On Tuesday, April 16th, we held our third AV Dines of the year at Gus’s in South Pasadena! Families relaxed and enjoyed some delicious BBQ in a lively atmosphere, and Whiskers stopped by for a visit and some cute furry photo ops. Thank you to our families who helped to support this local gem and had a good excuse to go out on a school night! Thank you also to Megan Keller for planning this community night. We plan to have our last AV Dines event of the school year in late May! Stay tuned for the restaurant choice and finalized date, we are thinking of a pizza family favorite (hint hint!).
