AVID Guest Speakers
Spotlight: AVID 7
Spotlight: AVID 8
AVID 8 started the year creating our class values. We have been working hard in all areas to uphold our values. Our class GPA is over a 3.0, we have been really focused on our tutorial sessions and are getting much better at asking questions and preparing really good question for our groups. We have also had several guest speakers centered on the health professions. We welcomed our new nurse, Bonnie Powers, as our first guest. Then we learned about keeping our brains safe from head injuries and what it takes to do health promotions from Jake Hardee, a former BSU football player. Finally, we learned about the Organ Donor Program from our last guest. We are looking forward to our upcoming service field trip to the Idaho Foodbank!

AVID Students Honored
Angel Duran, September
Angel is a quiet force of great awesomeness. He is mature and responsible, hard-working and disciplined. It’s a good thing, too, because Angel plans to be a Navy Seal some day. Angel is a 7th grade AVID student, which is another testament to his dedication and determination. He has challenged himself in his classes, and he is rising to the challenge. Congratulations Angel! You are on your way to great things.
Leila Hooper, October
Leila Hooper is a fantastic choice for October’s Student of the Month. Leila is the kind of person who always strives to do her best. She holds herself to very high expectations, and she works hard to make sure she’s accomplishing them! Leila is a 7th grade AVID student, so she has chosen to take all accelerated classes. Despite the challenging coursework, Leila has managed to maintain honor roll grades for her 7th grade year so far. She is kind and positive in class, a talented musician, and an overall amazing gal.
Will Cruz, October
William is a true leader in AVID and in all of his classes. He is one of those quiet leaders that is the first to lend a hand and support a classmate without calling attention to himself. He comes each day with a big smile and great attitude. In the AVID classroom he helps out at break to get the class ready for tutorials. He encourages his group and holds a high standard for himself and his academic work. Thanks for all you do, William!
