Congratulations to our 7 student artists whose works were recognized in the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts’ annual Scholastic Art Show earlier this month! This year’s competition was highly competitive, with hundreds of artworks from 10 local school districts being considered. • Junior Abby S. received honorable mention recognitions for two of her three show submissions - both in the drawing category. “The first piece was a black and white self portrait named ‘Self Image,’” said Abby. “It's meant to portray a poor relationship with cameras and physical image versus a desire to show outward beauty.” Her second recognized piece was colored pencil on black paper and was inspired by the “I Spy” children’s book series “which I was obsessed with in preschool.” “It's a collection of objects with no immediate connection,” Abby explained. “I love the ability of the ‘I Spy’ books to give life to simple trinkets and that’s what I feel this drawing does.” • Addi R., a sophomore, earned an honorable mention recognition in the drawing category for her picture of her cat, Rose. • Quinn F., a sophomore, received honorable mention in the traditional photography category for her piece, “Bridge of Memories.” “It’s a bridge I’ve gone to many times,” said Quinn, “whether on runs with the cross country team or walks with my family.” • Senior Maggie V. earned a second place award in the printmaking category for her unnamed piece showing her and her sister when they were younger. “I'm really happy with how it turned out and really happy I was selected for an award,” said Maggie. Freshman Lila M. took 3rd place in the studio art category for her piece, “Sunday Sunrise,” a collage composed of many pieces of paper based on a photograph of a sunrise in front of her house. • Junior Dior F. and sophomore Lynn F. earned honorable mention recognitions in the printmaking category. Well done, all!

As part of our Peer Mentoring program, we try to engage our mentors and mentees in a few structured activities throughout the school year. These activities are designed to help our mentor-mentee pairs get to know each other, grow together and work to accomplish a shared goal. Earlier this week, mentors and mentees got together in the High School Cafeteria for our biggest activity of the year. For this activity, we set up stations with materials and directions for the mentees and their mentors to follow together. The directions this year yielded playdough, slime, a smartphone speaker and a lava lamp, though our teams didn’t know that when they started out. All they knew was that they had to follow the directions together and carefully. The team that finished all 4 projects first was declared the winner. Clara D. and Juliana K. were our winners on day one and Rylie M. and Lucy T. were our winners on day two. Honorable mentions go to our runner up pairs of Ryan K. and Miles M. for day one and Preston M. and Evan B. for day two.

For the past year, a variety of stakeholder groups have been working hard to define our district and community values. While we’ve previously relied on the BRAVES Way (Brave-Responsible-Actively Involved-Values-Effort-Safe) and its accompanying matrix to inform our character education curriculum, it became necessary to re-examine this framework in light of the New York State Education Department’s mandate to cease using Indigenous names and imagery. A dozen stakeholder groups with representatives from our board of education, teaching faculty, facilities and transportation departments, business office, Lions and Rotary clubs and, most importantly, our student body, have been meeting to discuss our shared values and the ideals we aspire to as a district community. Using these discussions and the 60 unique shared values stakeholders came up with as a foundation, our district decided on three values that best encapsulate our district: Kindness, integrity and community. From there, our staff worked collectively to define what these values look and sound like in our school community. We feel these values pay homage to the BRAVES Way and position us to move forward together into a bright future. We shared these new values with our faculty and staff last week and today, we’re sharing them with you at the link below! Many thanks to our Elementary School Innovative Program Specialist Ian Smith for putting this announcement video together! Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8jjPlAc0YU

As part of the Rochester Broadway Theatre League’s annual Stars of Tomorrow program, select high school students from schools across the Greater Rochester are now vying to represent Rochester at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards, also known as The Jimmy Awards. Avon’s own Emma D., who portrayed Mother Superior in our drama club’s production of “Sister Act” earlier this year, will be going up against 40 other top lead performers from across the region as part of RBTL’s NYC Bound Competition. Emma will perform one song from “Sister Act” and one or two others from a list of options for a panel of expert judges, who will whittle down the initial 41 competitors to a top 10, then the final two - one leading male and one leading female - who will travel to New York for The Jimmy Awards. We know you’ll join us in wishing Emma the absolute best AND in voting for her in RBTL’s Fan Favorite competition at the link below. The person with the most votes will receive an RBTL prize package that includes tickets to an upcoming production of “Les Miserables.” Voting closes Wednesday, May 22 at 12 p.m. Let’s go, Emma!

Last week, our first grade students welcomed author Kevin Kurtz into their classrooms! Kurtz, an award-winning children’s author, visited each of our first grade classrooms to lead students in some non-fiction writing exercises and activities. “The visit went great,” said First Grade Teacher Jennifer Leonard. “He worked on non-fiction writing with the students and connected it to our science unit on sky patterns. The kids loved it!” Thank you for spending the week with us, Mr. Kurtz! (Photos courtesy of Jen Leonard)

Another run, another record for junior Finn S.! Before yesterday’s meet against Geneseo, our teams’ last home meet of the season, Finn asked coach Samantha Walker whether he could run the 3,200 for the first time this season. “When he finished his race yesterday, I told him his time, to which he informed me he broke the school record,” said Walker. “I didn't believe him, so I had to check for myself and found out he did indeed break the school record!” Finn ran a 10:15.64, besting his time from last season by more than 97 seconds and breaking Avon’s old school record of 10:22.32 set by Nick Campbell in 2009 by more than 6 seconds! “With a school record now in the 800 meters and 3,200 meters, Finn has his eyes set on the record for the 1,600 meters and 3,000-meter steeplechase for next year,” said Walker. Last night was also senior night where we recognized seniors Brenna D., Kaitlyn G., Cassidy P., Isis S. and Fabian S. The Braves are next in action at the LCAA Championships next week. Congratulations to Finn and our seniors! (Photos courtesy of Samantha Walker)

After this, the team will be working to prepare for the championship season and are expecting more great performances. Their mental toughness and contagious positivity has taken them far this season. We can't wait to see them continue to surprise us in the championship season!” (Photos courtesy of Samantha Walker)

TITLE DEFENDERS: Avon seniors Austin L. and Dom P. captured the Section V Class B2 doubles title this past weekend for the second straight year! After a first round bye at Churchville-Chili High School Saturday, Austin and Dom topped teams from Marcus-Whitman (10-0), Penn Yan (10-1) and East Rochester (10-3) en route to the finals where they defeated the team of Jack Currin and Jake Elmore from Le Roy, 6-4, 6-1, to win their second sectional title in as many years. Their sectional patch now in hand, Austin and Dom will next travel to Brockport High School May 24 for state qualifier matches against the top doubles teams from classes A and B for a chance to compete in the New York State Championships at the USTA’s Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York City. Austin and Dom won’t be going to Brockport alone however as our team of Nick and Ryan W. also punched their state qualifiers ticket after tying for 3rd in the B2 bracket Saturday. Nick and Ryan won their first match over Williamson, 10-7, in the round of 16 but fell to a team from Le Roy, 3-10, in the quarterfinals. Backs against the wall in the consolation bracket, Nick and Ryan rattled off 2 straight wins, 10-1 over the team of DeRoo/Smith from North Rose-Wolcott and 6-3, 6-1 over the team of Francis/Antonicelli from East Rochester, to assure their place in Brockport later this month.

On Wednesday, Elizabeth Patteson’s painting and printmaking students took a field trip to the Genesee Valley Council on the Arts’ gallery spaces up on Livingston County’s Murray Hill campus in Mount Morris. Morgan Hellquist, executive director of GVCA, led students on a tour of the campus and taught them a bit about GVCA’s history. Then, students had a chance to see some of the paintings currently on display in the galley space and even got to take a look around the Council’s storage area. “Hundreds of artworks were once created there during the New Deal era in the 1930s as part of the Federal Art program,” said Patteson. “The paintings have quite a history of display, poor storage, office employees taking them home with them, inadequate storage again, things like that. The gallery is currently fundraising to create better storage and restore some of the works.” Many thanks to GVCA for hosting our students! (Photos courtesy of Elizabeth Patteson)

Over the past few weeks, Wendy Dale’s 4th grade English students have been working on a non-fiction research project and recently, they headed up to the high school to share their work with Mrs. Cordula Kennell’s creative writing students! Dale’s students could choose either a person or an animal, as long as they chose a topic they knew nothing about. Some of the topics Dale’s students chose included sea slugs, salamanders, chinchillas, blobfish, Giannis Antetokuonmpo, Zendaya and Leo Messi. “The high school students offered feedback and lots of compliments on the 4th graders’ writing. Students also had a few minutes to share things about themselves and my kids liked that part too,” said Dale. “One of my students shared today that they enjoyed sharing their writing as it gave them a purpose for actually doing the project!” (Photos courtesy of Wendy Dale)

We were driving by the elementary school the other day when a pop of color near the main entrance caught our eye. Turns out, this absolutely beautiful garden of tulips and daffodils is all thanks to our kindergarteners who planted the bulbs last fall with the help of Mr. Michael Garrett, one of our teacher aides. “He came to me to see if the kindergarteners were interested in helping plant bulbs to spruce up the front entrance,” said Kindergarten Teacher Heather Watkins. “There was no initial academic component to it, but it has weaved its way nicely into our current curriculum as we have been studying living things and plants the past two weeks, so we’ve been making some extra stops on our way out to study their hard work and notice the parts of the flower that we have been learning about in class.” While the garden may have been Garrett’s idea, he credited Watkins and her family and Elementary School Physical Education Teacher Katlyn Bennetti and her family with helping make it a reality. “They spent a Saturday afternoon pulling weeds out of the area and Mrs. Watkins supervised kindergarten volunteers from all 4 kindergarten classes who planted bulbs during their afternoon playground time,” said Garrett. “It took 4 afternoons to plant 320 bulbs. The beauty that we're all enjoying this spring is the product of these people's work and I for one am very grateful!” Thank you to our kindergarteners, Mrs. Watkins, Mrs. Bennetti and Mr. Garrett for brightening up our campus!
