College Research Project

Posted by Anna Centi on September 22, 2017 in Blogs |


This week, the A.V.I.D students began working on a research project. With a partner, they will create a presentation on a college or University of their choosing. The slideshow is due September 29th on Google Classroom. Students will also create a pennant and write a letter (independently) to the college they chose.

Students will present these to the class once completed so that they gain some experience with presenting and so that we can all learn about the options available at different schools! We are thinking FUTURE!

Got G.R.I.T.?

Posted by Anna Centi on September 6, 2017 in Blogs |

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! This week we will be getting back into the routine of the classroom and discussing, writing about and demonstrating our understanding of what it means to have G.R.I.T.

Let’s start the year strong with a fierce work ethic and a drive to succeed in all we do!

"Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day-in, day-out. Not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years. And working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint."- Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth

In 2nd and 7th hour, we have started to engage in a new creative writing experience during the week. Below are the first two picture prompts we responded to! This activity helps students use their imagination, improve their vocabulary and their use of descriptive details and imagery! Parents, ask your child to share theirs with you!

They have researched an animal and will help the class learn how they survive in the wild! We are using new vocabulary and expanding the knowledge we have gained through the texts explored in class!
