This is the official page of the Abingdon-Avon High School Student Council. Like us for updates about school and council events.
Operating as usual
Good morning, everyone!
As some of you know our council has recently went through a couple of changes. With COVID hitting and then a change in advisors, it seems like we have totally reinvented our council. Due to these changes, we have found ourselves in a situation that requires us to leave this page behind. As hard as it is to leave this behind, we encourage that you follow our new page: Abingdon-Avon Student Council or @ATownTornadoesStuCo
We will always cherish your support through our journey and hope that you continue on with our next one!
Feeling sad today. We were supposed to be on our way to IASC State Convention for the weekend, and we always have so much fun! Missing our motivational sessions and all the madness that comes with convention.
StuCo members and Alum: Share your favorite memories from state convention! Photos are encouraged! 🤩
Who has pictures of the double rainbow??? Let's see!
What is your favorite local business to support right now, and what's your favorite thing to buy there? Show us in the comments!
We are halfway through April which means Student Council would normally be planning our pinwheel display in front of the school for Child Abuse Prevention Month. If you have seen these pinwheels, you may remember them being blue and having ribbons tied to the fence behind them. Those pinwheels and ribbons represent the lives of children who have been lost to child abuse. As we all shelter in place, many of us feeling comfortable and safe (albeit bored) in our homes, it is important to remember that not all children live in such a positive situation. With schools closed for weeks at a time, school staff members and other mandated reporters have fewer contacts with children which means fewer opportunities to discover and report abuse.
*While we do understand that everyone needs to see positive posts right now, we also encourage our members and supporters to take part in showing support for those who may be victims of child abuse by liking or sharing the photo below or by setting a similar photo or frame as your profile photo.
Where is the first place you're going when the shelter-in-place order is lifted?
This is my little bit of sunshine this morning. Lemon tea and my girls playing happily with their toys after a less-than-healthy breakfast. 🥰

Today's challenge: Most Creative Social Distance Measurement. The CDC recommends maintaining 6 feet of distance from others. Here's Mrs. Waller's measurement: 8.5 diapers = 6 feet. How do you measure your 6 feet??? Show us a photo in the comments!
Today's challenge: Covid Break Life. Post a photo of what you're doing, your outfit for the day, your snacks, your activities, ANYTHING will do! Let's reconnect!!
Anyone else getting bored?? Look for StuCo's new Boredom Buster Challenge tomorrow!!

🚨ATOWN STUDENT COUNCIL NEEDS YOUR HELP🚨
With Christmas not too far away, A-town Student Council is doing service projects, and we need you to donate!
We are doing two service projects that we need donations for:
- Community Cupboard
- Gifts for the Nursing Home
Anything that does not expire or winter accessories (hats, gloves, blankets, canned goods, etc.)
Gifts for the nursing home can be shampoo, body soap, board games, cards, anything that is small and that residents would enjoy.
If you would like to donate items, you can bring it to the high school or give them to a council member. We would like to have the items by NEXT FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13!! 🎄🎄
Yesterday's blood drive was a success! We donated 44 units (surpassing our drive goal by 11). Those units will be able to help up to 160 people! Thanks to all who donated and to MVRBC for another successful day. I was blown away by the compliments I received about our students from the staff at the drive. As always, we are proud to be 💚💛🖤🖤💛💚
It's Spooky Season and StuCo wants your blood! 🧛♀️ Blood Drive sign-ups will take place during both lunches October 14 & 15th. 🦇🎃 AND this year EVERYONE who donates will receive a voucher for a free t-shirt!
Thank you, A-Town Community! We received this thank you card from the Abingdon Food Pantry today. Thought we should share with all the people who made it possible. 🥰
Reminder: Homecoming parade has been rescheduled for Monday at 2. Line-up begins at 1. Please call the high school if you will NOT be participating! Thank you to everyone who has been so accommodating with this change!
Senior moms adding to the fun with a surprise dance. Tag away! It won't let me!

During homecoming week the classes have been battling to get cans for Abingdon food pantry. In total, we have counted 8,776 items (or 11,680 lbs) for this year's homecoming food drive! We had to get a second bus just to safely transport everything!
For those who are wondering, that is 5,041 more cans we got than last year!! Thank you to all those who have donated!!!
