It’s The 50th Anniversary Of The National PTA Reflections Program!

Get a head start this summer on next year’s National PTA Reflections program and create art focused on the theme “Heroes Around Me”. That’s the theme for the 2018-2019 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Reflections is an opportunity for students to express themselves and receive positive recognition for original works of art in six areas: musical composition, photography, visual arts, dance choreography, film production, and literature.

Entries are due in October. For more information or to download entry forms and category rules: Still have questions? Contact AVMS Volunteer Reflections Chairperson, Jen Stewart at


In order to avoid long lines at registration, 7th grade families should bring a copy of their updated Immunization Record to the Front Office.

To enroll in classes for 7th grade, your child must be fully immunized or have a permanent or temporary medical exemption on file with your child’s school. Per state law, 7th grade students cannot have personal beliefs exemptions.  Only a licensed Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) may provide a medical exemption. Included in the required immunizations is the Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis booster required for 7th grade. The booster may have been given any time after the 7th birthday.

Please bring your child’s Immunization Record and/or specific medical exemptions from your physician, to your child’s school as proof of immunization.  School staff will photocopy the Immunization Record and enter the information in the district student data base. Your child will not be able to attend classes in 7th grade without proof of immunization or medical exemption on file with us for all required immunizations. For more information regarding the Tdap or additional school immunization requirements for 7th grade you may visit .  This site addresses immunizations required for all 7th grade students including those who had a personal beliefs exemption in 6th grade or are new to the state.  Please see below for the Spanish Version.


Parents of returning students MUST update their Parent Portal with any changes in their Emergency Contacts and phone numbers.  Here are the instructions on how to update any information on your Parent Portal for parents of returning students.  Parents of new students will be able to create their Parent Portal after registration in August.


Parents, if you have moved please inform our AVMS Guidance Secretary of your new address as soon as possible.  We will need the following documentation from you in order to change your address in our database: (1) Mortgage Statement or Rental/Lease Agreement and  (2) a Utility bill (gas, water, or electric).
