7th and 8th grade AVID Electives

Welcome back AVID students! This next week we will ease ourselves into online learning. Please reach out to us if you need help with anything. We will be sharing with you tips and strategies on how to manage your time successfully. We strongly encourage you to designate a quiet and organized working/study area and to keep using your agenda. Here are some suggestions for creating a working space.

Careers e-Learning


I hope everyone is healthy and safe. I truly miss having the opportunity to see all of the new 6th grade students starting this quarter. I also miss the 7th and 8th grade students who were with me for the 3rd quarter. This e-learning experience is a good example of how prepared we need to be for out future. Technology is the way of the future, and this quarter we are going to be spending time on career choices that incorporate technology.

I am going to stay positive, and I am excited for this new learning experience for us all. I will be posting everything on Schoology, and it is my plan to have an entire week's worth of lessons in the weekly Schoology folder by 3:00 pm on Friday. The "Live" sessions will be used to highlight key points and to answer questions the class may have as a whole.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out and contact me. I look forward to seeing all the students next week. If you need to reach me I will provide a phone number where I can be contacted, by either calling or sending a text. You can also send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Stay Strong, Stay Positive, Stay Home!
