    Week of 8/19/2018:

    Hi AVID Guardians and Parents,

    I am very excited about having the opportunity to teach students about college and career readiness skills such as organization, and expand their knowledge in the areas of reading, writing, inquiry, and colloboration.

    For most of my students, this year will be the second time I am their teacher. During the 2016-2017 school year, I taught 6th grade World Cultures.

    This week, students will be re-introduced to WICOR strategies but the main focus will be on team building and colloboration activities.

    Also, we will begin the construction of our AVID binder therefore students will need their 3" binder with dividers, pencil pouch, highlighters (at least 4 different colors), pens, pencils, ruler (recommend), and hole puncher (recommend).

    Please contact the registrar if your personal contact information (home/cell phone numder, address, etc.) changes at anytime throughout the school year.

    Please view this page at least once a week for any updates!

    Sincerely
