8th Grade Fundraiser
Thanks to all of the families who supported the 8th Grade Lou Malnati's fundraiser, we earned $300 for the night, meaning our fundraiser was mentioned for $1,600 worth of orders! 

Aces Debate Club
The Debate Club is back at Marie Murphy! Congratulations to 8th grader Liam Dizon who earned a Top 10 Speaker Award (out of ~100 debaters) at the Township-wide debate tournament last month.

Amazon Smile
You can now support the PTC (0.5%) every time you shop with Amazon, at no additional cost using Amazon Smile. Here's how it works:

  • Sign up via a web browser (not the app). Log in to your account and go to smile.amazon.com
  • To choose your charity, type in and select "Avoca 37" in the search bar
  • Each time you shop on Amazon via a web browser, always go to smile.amazon.com. If you go to Amazon.com, all the money goes to Amazon. If you shop in the app, you still have to first choose your Amazon Smile charity in a web browser. 
  • After you have chosen Avoca 37, you can then enable Amazon Smile in the app by following the instructions. 

Avoca Preschool Enrollment
Preschool Enrollment for the next school year is still open. If you are interested, complete the 22-23 Preschool Enrollment form here and return it to Dawn Scaramuzza in the Student Services office, along with a $100 non-refundable application fee.
