The AHS PTO Board welcomes all new and returning families to Avon High School for the 2021-22 school year! We are excited to all be back together again and can’t wait to bring back many of the fun activities that the PTO has sponsored in the past, as well as create new traditions! The AHS PTO Board is looking forward working together to make AHS a warm and positive place for all students, families, faculty and staff. We invite you to join us in fulfilling our mission to enhance and enrich AHS through quality programming, community engagement, and support for all students. 

You might be wondering how you can get involved in the PTO. Well, PTO involvement can take many forms: providing financial support through our One & Almost Done annual fundraiser (more information is attached), attending PTO meetings (either in person or virtually), volunteering on a committee such as Teacher Appreciation or volunteering for an event like Project Graduation. 

Right now, we are looking for 1-2 people to chair our Project Grad Party, 1-2 people to chair our Staff Appreciation Committee, and 1-2 people to chair our new School Spirit Committee (the exciting thing about being part of a new committee is you can help decide what this committee does!). Everything is more fun with a friend, so grab a friend and help make AHS amazing for our kids! If you would like to be part of one of these PTO committees, please reach out to Courtney Robinson.

Feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] with any questions or ideas. And make sure to find us on Facebook at Avon High School PTO (CT) for updated information and volunteer opportunities. We will post lots of important information from AHS and Avon Public Schools.

The Avon High School PTO Mission is...

to work with AHS parents, guardians, faculty and staff to enhance the experience of AHS students by providing quality, enriching educational programs; creating open lines of communication; and facilitating the involvement of all parties in the planning and execution of school programs and events. The organization strives to:

  • encourage an exchange of ideas and information among educators, parents/guardians, and students through meetings, print and e-communications, and events.
  • promote interest and awareness of the AHS curriculum, facilities, staff, and community through regular meetings and communications.
  • raise funds to financially support programs, resources, services, and equipment (not covered by the Board of Education budget) that enrich students' school experience.

The AHS PTO is administered by an executive committee and all meetings are open to the public. Parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to attend meetings to share ideas, suggestions and/or concerns. All money raised by the PTO is invested in school programs and resources.
