AVID Family Night

Students from our two AVID classes had the opportunity to show their families what AVID is all about Wednesday night.

AVIDFamilyNight1     AVIDFamily2      AVIDFamilyNight3     AVIDFamilyNight4     AVIDFamilyNight5     AVIDFamilyNight6

Instructors, Bill LaCombe and Kevin Edwards, are teaching the first full year of AVID at Stevenson High School.  AVID is a program that is found world-wide and has been around for 30 years.  The goal of AVID is to help students that have amazing potential reach their dreams of going to college.  Edwards and LaCombe are passionate about this class and have built a culture where students are learning the skills they need to be successful not only in high school, but prepare them to take the journey into college and the rest of their lives.  

 

Families got to see their student's AVID binder, an organizational tool that holds all their assignments from every class.  Many students even demonstrated the "shake test" proving that everything was well organized and would not fall out.  Students then had the opportunity to model an important component of the AVID class, the Tutorial.  This is a process, much like a college study group, where students learn to ask each other questions for problems in classwork to arrive at a solution.  Students worked with their families on the essential question: "How will we incorporate a college visit into our family vacation?"  Students were able to share with their families some of their dream colleges that they would like to see and problem solve how they would get there.

 

Mr. Edwards, Mr. LaCombe, and Principal Marino appreciate the family support that was evident.  We are excited to continue building this amazing program and see students reach their college goals!

End of Course Exams Retakes

End of Course (EOC) Exam Retakes are right around the corner.  Tuesday, January 14th will be the algebra exam and Thursday, January 16th will be the biology exam.  These are important exams that are require for graduation.  Students have as much as time as they need to complete the exam, although most are done within two hours.  Teachers are offering test review sessions by appointment.  Below are some helpful test-taking strategies:

  • Get a good night’s sleep several days before the exam.  Sleeping 12 hours the night before will make you groggy on exam day.
  • Eat breakfast with lots of protein and low in sugar so you do not crash.
  • Drink water, breath deeply, & stretch.  This helps get blood flowing back to the brain!
  • Read the instructions for each question carefully.
  • Mark the text and take notes .
  • Answer every question- it’s OK to guess.
  • Show your work.
  • Take your time & check everything at the end.
  • Use all resources available to you!
