JMS 4th Annual AVID "Lighting the Way" Ceremony

September 29, 2017

Jefferson Middle School held the 4th Annual AVID “Lighting the Way” Ceremony that officially inducts students into the AVID program.  The 6th, 7th and 8th grade classes participated in the ceremony.  The students celebrated their academic goals for the 2017/2018 school year and the 8th grade classes were responsible for leading the program.  Many 8th grade students spoke about their determination to achieve their goals and change their mindsets to growth mindsets.  Several students won awards for academic excellence.  The evening ended in students and parents signing the AVID student agreement.   The Jefferson staff is proud of ALL its Jefferson Jaguars in the AVID program.  Have a great year!
