The Avonworth Middle School Parent Network was developed to support the educational process for our children. We do this by promoting the welfare of children and youth in home, school, and community; bringing into closer relation the home and the school so that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth; developing, between educators and the general public, united efforts that will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, and social education; educating parents on issues of concern to students and educators; providing resources for the staff to enhance the tools they have available; and promoting positive social activities for students in a safe environment.
The Parent Network is an independent, volunteer group that is dedicated to supporting the students, teachers, parents and administration of Avonworth Middle School.
Sponsor fun activities for students, including in-house socials, skating party, pool party, and pancake breakfasts.
Support teachers—The teaching team for each grade has a liaison in the Parent Network who provides assistance for events and resources as needed. Parent Network sets aside $300 per year per grade for supplemental resources requested by teachers. Parent Network ends the school year with a Teacher Appreciation Day to thank teachers for their hard work and dedication.
Support the Middle School administration—staff the Scholastic Book Fairs and assist with the Eighth Grade Commencement.
Facilitate communications between parents and school—Meetings are held to give the opportunity to discuss topics with the principal and other parents. Communication is made via the middle school newsletter each month with important information concerning upcoming events.
