Happy Fall, Mustangs!
I thought this would be a good time to introduce our AVID site team. This is the group of individuals who work to support AVID students, often "behind the scenes." Right now this team is in the process of holding parent-teacher conferences for AVID students who earned one or more F in a core content class or whose GPAs fell below a 2.0. While it isn't as enjoyable to address struggles as it is to celebrate accomplishments, it is necessary to address struggles in order to have accomplishments to celebrate. This team works very hard to support our students, but we would not be able to be effective were it not also for the amazing support offered by our AVID parents and other West Mesa teachers. Thank you from the AVID site team to our AVID parents and West Mesa colleagues for supporting our students!
