AVID 2018-2019

posted May 2, 2018, 3:46 PM by tiffaney golden   [ updated May 2, 2018, 3:47 PM ]

Mrs. Duus spoke with all current 6th and 7th grade students about AVID for next school year. 

 AVID is an academic, regularly scheduled elective class, during the school day, based on writing as a tool of learning, the inquiry method, and collaborative grouping. The three main components of the program are: . academic instruction, tutorial support and motivational activities.

What is AVID? AVID students are students in the middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path with support. These students often are not realizing their full potential academically. In the identification process a number of criteria are considered, including:   2.0 – 3.5 GPA, citizenship, attendance, desire and determination.  

Applications are due May 11th.  If you have questions speak with Mrs. Duus or Mrs. Golden.

Scheduling for 2018-2019

Last Wednesday the high school counselor, Mrs. Wilson and the high school principal, Mr. Greene came to the middle school to speak with our 8th graders about high school.  The 8th graders were shown a video with current high school seniors giving tips for high school success.  Mrs. Wilson walked the students through what "credits" mean and how to understand what is needed to graduate.  Students then looked through the high school course catalog and signed up for their classes.  

Current 5th, 6th and 7th grade students will be signing up for their middle school elective in May.

AVID Recruitment for 2018-2019 School Year

posted Mar 20, 2018, 9:12 AM by tiffaney golden

AVID is a group, a family away from home, that encourages thinking outside of the box and wants to help you learn to be a  life-long learner.  AVID helps you learn what it takes to be a successful student and push for more.  AVID is all about a more rigorous schedule, but giving you the materials you need not to fail, but to reach the highest star possible and still be successful.

AVID isn't a remedial program.
AVID isn't a free ride.
AVID isn't a placement program.
AVID is not a behavior correction program

If you are interested in AVID for next school year, ask Mrs. Golden, Mrs. Anglin, Ms. Allen, Ms. Carter, Mrs. Rhodes, Mrs. Lowsley or Mrs. Duus.  They will help you get more information.

C.R.R.E.W. Cards

posted Mar 2, 2018, 2:37 PM by tiffaney golden

P.B.I.S. (Positive Behavior Intervention System) is alive and flowing at the middle school.  Staff is encouraging our students to self-discipline themselves within an environment that promotes learning, creativity and character growth.  There are four traits that students can be recognized for: caring, responsible, respectful and effort.  If a student is recognized by a staff member for modeling the expected behavior, a C.R.R.E.W. card will be filled out for the student.  One copy is given to the student, another copy is displayed on our C.R.R.E.W. wall for everyone to see and the third copy is entered into our weekly drawing for prizes.  Students receiving C.R.R.E.W. cards for the week will be listed on the school's webpage and Facebook.
