New this year will be an AfterSchool Garden Club (with Jones Valley Farm), Chess Club, and Avondale’s art teacher, Ms. Mackin, will work with students on some interesting and fun projects; possibly even a mural for the school. Computers will also be available for students to engage in technology projects.
