Avoca PTC Home Page

All are Welcome!
The Avoca PTC is a membership of District 37 parents, teachers and
administration, who are dedicated to fostering the social, educational and
physical well being of each Avoca student. We serve all students at the
Avoca Community Preschool, Avoca West School and Marie Murphy School.

Get Involved!

The PTC encourages all parents to interact and get involved by making it
easy to volunteer with our online sign-up sheet. To help you connect with
the school, fill out the short form at: PTC Volunteers   PTC VOLUNTEER FORM.
It takes only 5-7 minutes. Please contact our volunteer coordinator, Louise Dechovitz with any questions or concerns at avocaptc@gmail.com.
