Thank you to bus driver 139 for helping to support our kids when faced with bullying. It would be easy to ignore it, but you have supported him and addressed it. Avon bus drivers are the best! 

- Rachael Clark, parent 

I have been so impressed with the Avon Intermediate West teachers.  My daughter has been quarantined and Ms. America has gone above and beyond to make sure she has stayed up to date on class work and understands the material.  I am so grateful for outstanding teachers like Ms. America. -Katy Towles, proud parent

We know these are unusual times and have been very difficult.  Mrs. Jones, Mr. Arthur, and Mrs. Teipen are doing an incredible job. Thank you!
