The DREAMers Connection
New Look! New Feel! New Attitude!
Avon Avenue School Kicks off the new School Year with a fresh New Look
On the heels of a local control and the installation of a new Superintendent, Avon has made a few changes of its own! A new logo designed by, a now former DREAMer, and a new motto: Achieving Victorious Outcomes Now! Mrs. R. Johnson, Vice Principal of Culture said, “The new school symbolize’s a renewed sense of hope & pride for our DREAMers, their families, and our school community. The new logo made one of its first appearances over the summer on the school’s website and can be found all over the school campus, on murals, planners and banners.

Hitting the ground running
With sights on a new school year, Avon Avenue School hosted it’s 1st ever: South Ward Community Day @ The “A”. It was an opportunity for our school community to join us in preparing for the new school year! We were joined, in the rain, by our new Superintendent, Roger Leoń, Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka, and multi-platinum selling Hip-Hop Artist Dupré “Do It All” Kelly, from the Lords of the Underground.
In late October, Avon Avenue School partnered with the Victoria Foundation and the Greater Newark Conservancy and “Cut the ribbon” on a brand new Fruit Orchard ( on the corner of Avon & Chadwick Avenue. Sandy’s Orchard was created as a posthumous honor of Sandy Milspaugh, a former trustee of the foundation. This space will server as a year round Outdoor Learning Center for Avon Avenue Scholars.
