Keeping AVID Strong This Summer

This year Kindergarten through 5th graders worked on organization, goal writing, and learning about different colleges.  Our halls were decorated with college pennants and student goals.  Students K-5 wrote in their planners everyday and learned how to use a calendar.  This summer lets continue our work.  

Here are a few ideas we can do this summer:

  • Write in their planner:Upcoming Events, Birthdays, Camps, Read 5, Fact 5, etc. 

  • Ask your child what their goal is and how they can achieve it.

  • Have students write to colleges to request information to learn more.

  • Know of anyone that is in college that would donate? We love to advertise at Fairview with pencils, stickers, posters, pennants, etc.
