At our Welcome Back Assembly we shared that grade level groups would be represented by the banners of various universities throughout California. In the first year we are going have The Little Roadrunners, TK/Kindergarten and 8th Grade represented by the UCLA Bruins. Our 2nd and 7th graders will be represented by the USC Trojans, Our 3rd and 6th Grades will be represented by the Fresno State Bulldogs, and the 1st, 4th, and 5th Grades will be represented by the CSUB Roadrunners.
Throughout the year assemblies will be held and there will be competitions under the banners of the universities.
The point of AVID is to promote college readiness and interest with our students. This is accomplished by working with all our students in the areas of writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading. Students are given strategies in these areas that will help with life long skills and will strengthen their skills moving forward in school until they are ready to attend colleges or universities. It is expected that these skills will make them more career ready as well.
