History starts at founders
Many West Valley historians have begun researching their cities by starting with the founders, who include Billy Moore, left, who settled in Avondale; Rough Rider William “Buckey” O’Neill, one of Buckeye’s founders who extended canals into the area; Paul Litchfi eld, who made his home in what is now Litchfi eld Park; and farmer Walter Tolleson, who, according to some records, may have planted Tolleson’s famous pecan trees.

We are a TAPTM Spring/Summer 2012 Building a Brighter Future
In a collaborative, forward-looking approach to education, the Avondale Elementary School District has adopted TAP, a proven system developed by the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching.
This bold, new strategy has been made possible by a $43.4 million 5-year grant in partnership with ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teacher’s College. We will network our 8 schools with over 60 schools statewide and hundreds of schools nationally.
Since teacher quality is the single most important school-related factor for stu- dent achievement, the improved teacher performance facilitated by the TAP system means dramatic increases in stu- dent academic growth. And that means a brighter future for our children.
