Family Workshop #3 in the New MPR!

The third AVID Family Workshop was conducted in the new MPR (The Knights Hall) on February 6. Ninth-grade student emcees Alex T. and Patrick B. (above) welcomed over eighty participating students, parents, teachers, and friends. The emcees began the presentation with "the bad news" and "the good news" about college admissions. Ms. Pienta continued with information on such topics as in and out-of-state tuitioin, residency, gradution rates, and much more. AVID families received special inserts for their College Portfolios on these topics.

Departing ninth-grade AVID student Elisha H. gave her farewell address, and middle school AVID student Madeia C. read the departing words of Kierra N. Aica D. presented a baby gift from AVID students to departing AVID tutor Ms. Imlah.

Ms. Sibayan closed the workshop and thanked participants for their support and attendance. Everyone enjoyed many delicious cookies and juice afterwards.

Thank you to everyone who made this workshop a great success, especially Mr. Brown, Mr. Aevermann, Ms. Smith, Ms. Camuso, Ms. Lara, Ms. O'Connor, Elisa V., Miguel D., Patrick F., Tim F., tutors, counselors, administrators, students, and parents!
