  • McAvinnue's Parent / Teacher Group (PTG) Meeting


    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 Thursday, December 9th 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!
