Hi To All of You,

The After Action Report from Ms. Sibayan's AVID Middle Schoolers after the last Family Workshop:
"I think making the cookies was pretty fun. I kind of wish that I could have helped set up."
" I was happy to see a lot of people eating and enjoying our cookies. We should have been louder while we were doing our screen reading, but overall it was pretty good. I think it would be fun to make/decorate cookies again because it shows how dedicated we are toward AVID and family nights."
"The things I needed to do was pay extra attention to what was being said because my mom learned a lot. Because of family night, my mom won't buy me a car for college."
