Vaccination Information Upload
If you have not done so already, please upload your student's vaccination status with the District, since doing so will help reduce quarantine of close contacts. Click here to upload.

PTC Dues & AtoZ Directory
The PTC Director of Membership,  Ann Heinz would like to thank everyone for joining the PTC and paying their $25 dues. If you haven't paid, you still have time and can pay online here. Access to AtoZ will be temporarily unavailable during migration to the new system. She will let parents know when they are able to access it again and knows everyone is eager to see AtoZ updated. She is still waiting to get the most up-to-date information. It will be updated as soon as the information is received.


8th Grade Committee in Full Swing
If any parents of 8th graders are interested in participating, please reach out to either Betsy Harootyan (betsyharootyan@gmail.com) or Dorothy Elfring (ddelfring@gmail.com). The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for September 15, 2021. 

Wilmette Safety & Civics Committee 
The Safety & Civics Committee of Wilmette is looking for a second representative from D37. In previous years, the time commitment was one (1), 1-2/hr morning meeting per month, which took place during the day on a weekday. School administration also attends. We serve alongside representatives from the other Wilmette schools. If interested, reach out to Betsy Harootyan at betsyharootyan@gmail.com

AVOCA FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM 
 
Avoca is excited to announce that we will continue to offer free breakfast and free lunch for all students for the 2021-2022 academic school year. Please note lunch will be offered free of charge to all enrolled students on school service days only. The district is not able to offer breakfast for pick up on Mondays at this time. You do not need to fill out an application for free lunch for this year. This revised program will operate on-site only and there will no longer be any special pick-up days since all the lunch meals will be consumed on-site (i.e. no weekend or holiday meals available). For more information about Avoca's food service program, please visit the website.
