    We are looking to rebrand McAvinnue Parent Teacher Group (PTG) and we need your help to get thing off the ground this school year!

    One of the strengths of McAvinnue over the years has been its parent and family support! From attending amazing events, donating funds for various school activities, and your recent partnership with our teachers last school year when things were less than normal for everyone. Your support for McAvinnue is at an all time high!

    We want to use this energy to reform McAvinnue's Parent Teacher Group....also known as McAvinnue's PTG!

    Come out on Wednesday, February 2nd at 6:00 PM to learn more about the PTG and to begin to plan for another awesome year for our students at McAvinnue. All parents and caregivers are welcome to attend!

    This event will be "virtual" and conducted using the Zoom Meeting platform.

  • McAvinnue's Yoga Pose Of The Week

    Tree 2

    Due to the short week that just concluded, we will continue to practice the "Tree" pose for this coming week. This pose will allow us to work on improving our balance through deliberate concentration, which will increase our ability to focus throughout our day! We will practice the "Tree" pose daily during our "Virtual" Morning Announcements during this up and coming week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

    You can get an early head start and practice this technique before we launch into another exciting week!
