All are Welcome!
The Avoca District 37 Parent Teacher Council (PTC) is a membership of parents, teachers, and staff who are dedicated to fostering the educational, social and overall well-being of each student at Avoca Community Preschool, Avoca West School, and Marie Murphy School.  We serve these students by promoting a closer working relationship among district families, the school, and the community at large.

The PTC encourages all parents to interact and get involved by making it easy to volunteer with our online sign-up sheet.
