Students from Avon Old Farms raised $16k in just two weeks to buy toys for Hartford-area kids in an annual event called the Hartford Toy Shoppe. 

Just a good example of prep school philanthropy. Pretty amazing to see AOF students raising that much coin in just two weeks. Who would not want to help little kids on Christmas? Here’s the link to the organization that puts on the event: Click here

If you haven’t heard about Jazz Cartier yet, now is as good a time as ever.  The Indian Mountain and Avon Old Farms alum is currently working on his much-anticipated full length album, Losing Elizabeth.  Above and below are some of his hottest tracks.  Jazzy is word to all the prep school rappers out there that you can do it big too.

Wow. It looks like it’s mostly the playing fields, but did Avon Old Farms take a hit or what? Check out how high the water reaches the field goal posts in the top of the photo.
