Auer has a great principal, staff, parents, and students. The majority of adults are committed to the mission of moving the school forward through improved student achievement. Students appear happy as they great visitors with a warm smile. It is obvious that the principal cares about Auer and its surrounding community as seen through her years of service and hard work. Kudo's to Auer Avenue School for its devotion to children and the community.
While not all parents are involved with the school many are. Free tutoring is offered at the school and many children are enrolled in it. We do have extracurricular activities, boys and girls basketball teams, and girl scouts are among them. Our enrollment has declined, and so has our funding, however, our Principal has managed to keep art, music and gym in our school. We have a very dedicated staff that consistently goes 'above and beyond' to bring a quality eductional experience to their students.
There is a serious lack of parental involvement at Auer Ave. Parents do not take advantage of free tutoring that is offered by the CLC program. The budget for the 07-08 school year is going to be cut. This will be devastating to the students. There are no extracurricular activities for the students offered by the school. So when the budget takes out art, library and gym they will have nothing.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
