to be opened soon.  Stay tuned for more updates.

Avondale's Watch D.O.G.S. and M.O.M.S. Kickoff
The Avondale Elementary School’s cafeteria was the sight of a pizza party and a lot of parents Tuesday evening for the annual MOMS (Mothers of Magnificent Students) and DOGS (Dads of Great Students) meeting. The MOMS and DOGS volunteer at least one day of the school year to be present at the school to help the youngsters with their lessons or to just simply listen to a new reader show off his or her new-found skills.
