IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE that it has been 25 years since the first Woodland Wildcat walked through the doors of our school! In that time, we have grown and adapted to the ever-changing world of elementary education; developing learning opportunities that help to prepare our students for life in a global society while preserving the essence of family and neighborhood that has always been at the heart of our learning community. Celebrate 25 years of teaching and learning with a walk down memory lane on September 16, 2023 (5:00 - 7:00pm) at Woodland Elementary.

The Avondale Theater Company spent the last two weeks in Edinburgh Scotland performing as part of the 2023 International Fringe Festival. 60 members of the Avondale Community traveled as part of the American High School Theatre Festival bringing the play Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters to the Fringe. The show was a wild success selling out the largest venue AHSTF has to offer 3 out of 4 times (and coming only 2 tickets shy of a complete sell-out of the run). The show was well received by the festival and the company was recognized by the Festival with an award for their professionalism and cohesion. While at the Fringe, students took part in a number of activities including seeing shows at the Globe Theater, and the West end of London. Avondale is the ONLY public high school to receive an invitation to perform at the Fringe Festival 4 times. The students of the ATC worked very hard to secure funding for this amazing trip and proved once again why our Avondale Theatre Company is considered one of the best programs in the state of Michigan.

"It has been my privilege throughout my 23 years of teaching in the Avondale School District to work with many commited, creative and supportive staff and administrators. As Avondale teachers, we continually enhance our skills and embrace new teaching strategies so that the learning experience for all students is rich and meaningful. I am proud to be a member of such a dedicated staff."
"Avondale provides a breadth of academic, pre-professional, and athletic opportunities among a vibrant and diverse student body. Experienced teachers and educators promote effective learning and inclusion, and students follow suit: all students feel welcome and find a unique space in the greater community. My Avondale experience, enriched with successes and unforgettable memories, has shaped me into a human being I would have never imagined as a young child. Personally, I have been pushed to realize my full potential through all walks of life during my full Avondale K-12 experience, as have all of my peers. Socially, I have met individuals who I have built life-long friendships with, and, for this, I am truly thankful to be a member of the Avondale Community."
