5th Grade Avid Information for Middle School - Due January 15th

Middle School registration is around the corner, and one of the exciting things about middle school is choosing electives. One elective that will be offered is called AVID, which requires a nomination from the elementary school and an interview.

The school counselor will introduce the AVID elective to all 5th grade students on Friday, after lunch and distribute the brochure below for them to bring home. The brochure provides a brief overview of what the AVID elective is, who is eligible for the class, and an AVID Elective interest slip.

If your student is interested in the AVID elective, please complete the information on the interest slip, cut it out, and bring it to school by next Wednesday, January 15th.

Please contact Mrs. Thompson, if you want more information:
