How Can You Help?

Ways to help you AVID student at home:
  • Talk to your son/daughter about school.
  • Be aware of your student’s classes and his/her performance in each. Praise your student’s strengths and help him/her find ways to improve in areas of weakness.
  • Ask to look at your son/daughter’s binder
  • Review your student’s tutorial request forms to see what kind of questions he/she is asking in class.
  • Know your son/daughter’s friends.
  • Be enthusiastic and supportive. Your son/daughter’s participation in AVID will keep him motivated and excited about reaching the goal of attending a four-year college or university.

Tutors Needed:

As part of AVID, students participate in a tutoring program to support these students as they challenge themselves to our accelerated and Advanced Placement course work. We are hoping that some of the students at from area colleges might be interested in tutoring our students as part of this program. In this program, tutors act more as guides and facilitate a small group of students with similar academic needs while the AVID elective teacher is present in the classroom. Both tutors and students are provided with training to make them more successful in this process. These tutors are essential to the success of our AVID students and their future success at schools like yours. Tutors will be needed daily from 12:30-2:05pm and will be paid $8/hour for their time. Tutors will need to be able to provide their own transportation. Please e-mail Carly Fortin for more information or call her at 860-584-7876.
