District Information, Event Details, and Volunteer Opportunities 

Early Childhood Developmental Screening Date
Avoca School District 37 offers free screenings to district residents, ages 2 ½ to 5, who may have delays in their development. These screenings cover language development, fine and gross motor skills, social and emotional behavior, and early learning. The appointments take approximately one hour to complete. Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we ask that only one parent attend the screening with their child. Masks are required to enter the building and must be kept on during the screening. 

The location for the screening is Marie Murphy School, 2921 Illinois Road, Wilmette, Illinois. Please call the Student Services office at 847-728-4142 to make an appointment. The fall scheduled screening date is Thursday, October 28, 2021.

PTC: AtoZ Directory & Membership Update
Thank you to everyone that has paid PTC dues. We have now restricted access to AtoZ to families that have paid their PTC dues. Dues are only $25 per family. You can still pay membership dues by dropping off cash or a check at the office of your child's school. The quickest way to pay for membership dues is by paying via PayPal here. If you already have the Membership Toolkit app, we have a store on there called "Join the PTC." You can check out via PayPal there also. As a reminder, all families need to make a new account on the new website. AtoZ has a new system and even though you had an account on the old website, everyone needs to create a new account. The new app that you can have on your phone is called Membership Toolkit. The old app can be deleted because it will no longer be used. Here are some tips on how to access the Directory on AtoZ. If you have any questions, please email at annmuiheinz@gmail.com
