AVID Update

October 2021

New AVID Staff

New AVID Tutors

EL AVID Happenings

In EL AVID we have been focused on organization with our planners, getting used to the tutorial process, and setting goals for our tutoring sessions every other week. We are getting better at completing Tutorial Request Forms and discovering what questions we still have in our other classes. The goal for my students is to use our class time and tutors wisely so we can have passing grades in all of our classes.

AVID Popcorn Fundraiser

This year we set a record with our popcorn fundraiser. The students did an amazing job selling popcorn. We will be able to use this money to help with college visits, give our students scholarships and other AVID activities.


College Vistis

AVID Seniors have already begun receiving college acceptance letters. This is the payoff for all the hard work in AVID over their past 3 years.

Upcoming Events

Recently our Seniors were able to take some college visits. Their first ones in over a year and a half. It felt great for them to be back visiting college campuses. They were able to visit NLU-Wheeling, Carthage College, and UW-Parkside. And coming soon they are going to visit some schools downstate such as University of Illinois and Illinois Wesleyan.

Additionally, our Freshmen and Sophomores will be touring Northeastern Illinois University, their first college tour in high school at the end of October.

Also, we are very excited to host Ricky Ramirez, a nationally well-known motivation speaker from ElPaso, TX who also happens to be an AVID teacher. Check out his website here. https://www.rickramirezspeaks.com/
