- Avoca School District 37 will host the 2009 Annual Family Fun Fair from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday at Avoca West Elementary School in Glenview. The fair is hosted by the Avoca Parents' and Teachers' Council to raise funds for various school projects and supplies.
• Avoca West Elementary School art students had the opportunity to work with artist and muralist Mirtes Zwierzynski. The Avoca Parents and Teachers Council funded this artist-in-residence project. Avoca West art teacher Nicki Scozia and her first- through fifth-grade art students collaborated with Mirtes and created a 19 foot by 8 foot mosaic mural for the front entranceway of the school. Art in Action parent volunteers Patrice Bazianos, Donna Fulks, JoEllen Kerwin, and Rosella Tinto also participated in the creation of the mural, and parent Rocky Rowe donated the installation of the mosaic.
Wilmette District 39 staff and Avoca District 37, under the legislation of the state of Illinois, provide free educational screening for preschool-age children residing in the District 39 or District 37 communities.
The purpose of the screening is to identify developmental delays in children.
The screening is conducted by Wilmette District 39 and held at Romona School, 600 Romona Road, Wilmette. To schedule a child's preschool screening appointment, contact Kathy Hughes. District 37 residents may contact Cindy Devin.
The final preschool screening date is March 13.
