AVID 9: Tutorology + Conflict Management
Our AVID 9 students have been very busy! On October 31, our AVID 9 students attended the field trip at Maryville College. For many of our AVID 9 students, this was the first time that they had stepped foot on a college campus. Even though the weather was atrocious, we still did not let it dampen our fun!
In addition to our first college field trip, our AVID 9 students have fully started the tutorial process! For beginners, our AVID 9 students are doing quite well with all that is entailed with tutorials. When we are not doing tutorials, we have been learning about more skills with time management, conflict management, and effective study behaviors. Our AVID 9 cohort also spent a class period collecting trash around the outside of our school campus as their community service project. We will also be sharing more at our next Family Night on November 21.

AVID 10: Academic Vocabulary + Career Clusters
AVID 11: Becoming College Bound
Can you believe it? It is time to narrow our college shortlist for AVID Juniors. We are creating college “crates”, organizing our personal and financial information to prepare for applications and generating ideas for essay questions. Very soon we will be applying for COLLEGE!
In addition, we are thinking about how AVID has impacted our lives. Every year, AVID hosts a speech competition where students and teachers get to compete for a spot to share their story at the AVID Summer Institute. This summer’s topic is “Here I Am”. We can hardly wait to hear from our AVID Juniors about the influence of AVID on their very bright futures.
