Thank you to everyone who made our first AVID family night a big success. Out in the courtyard Lynn Lurvey grilled hundreds of burgers and hot dogs while families had a chance to mingle. Afterwards families rotated between three sessions dedicated to the fundamentals of AVID. For a change of pace the adults in Tutor Joy Cattledge’s session were the ones taking Cornell Notes. In Tutor Marc Woods’ session families had the chance to experience the teambuilding that we do in AVID. In mine students led tutorial while families peppered them with questions.
I overheard one long-time AVID parent say to her son, “Now I know what you’ve been talking about all this time.”
I learned a valuable lesson myself. I think that I might need to take a more active role with photography at the next event. After taking one picture of Lynn cooking, I handed my camera to a group of students who took the others. See what you think.
