There will be times due to the weather that we have a late start or a complete cancellation of school. You should receive a call from either our office or the district office informing you of this. If you are not receiving a call on these days, it is possible that we have your number wrong in our system. It is very important to keep us posted of any phone number changes in case of an emergency. Please remember on late start days breakfast will NOT be served so please make sure your child eats breakfast at home. Late start days are always two hours later. Therefore, if your child gets picked up by the bus at 7:30 a.m., he/she will get picked up at 9:30 a.m.. School will begin at 9:45 a.m. and students will be considered tardy if they are not here at 9:45 a.m..
We will be having our group pictures taken on Thursday, February 8th. your child will also have an opportunity to take an individual picture as well. Order envelopes have been sent home.
Saturday, January 28th, six of our students auditioned and were selected to perform for the Colorado All State Choir at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. We are fortunate to have Mrs. Teschner, our music teacher, as she is one of a few Pueblo teachers who participate in this wonderful event. Approximately 400 students from throughout the state of Colorado came together and performed some very difficult music pieces before an audience of approximately 1,000 people. Augustus Crouch, Amilia Gallegos, Troy Spedilari, Hannah Sais, Shania Martinez, and Matthew Sigler represented Avondale Elementary. They made us proud. A special thank you to Mrs. Teschner for making this opportunity possible for our students
