Sigler Elementary Monday Memo

Week 16


Our theme at Sigler Elementary this year is "connecting". Each week we will capture images of our Sigler Community connecting in four vital areas; curriculum, community, students and staff. We will showcase the images below for all to enjoy and remind ourselves of the power of a connectivity!

AVID - Advancement Via Individual Determination

Each week we are going to highlight an AVID strategy that you can incorporate into your routine in the classroom or parents can discuss with students at home.

Family Connections - Time Log

This past Thursday, students went home with a Time Log to use with their parents, in managing their time at home. AVID students understand the importance of time management and utilize their time wisely so all of their school work, extra curricular activities and family activities fit within their schedule. See the image below as an example you can follow when completing the time log at home.

For more information about this lesson, staff can find the AVID folder on the shared drive: Sigler: AVID
