Dear Scholars and Parents:
Welcome to the AVID team! We are excited to get to know your scholar as they go through their school year here at Ridge Road Middle School. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. It is a program that prepares scholars who demonstrate the potential for success to enter a four-year college or university or the aspiration to go directly into the workforce. Our goal at RRMS is to provide the organizational and study skills necessary for all students to achieve academic success.
This year we will be implementing AVID WICOR(Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, Reading) strategies school wide. These strategies will be used in all content areas this year. To make sure we incorporate the AVID binder we have been using in previous years, our school will be using an eBinder to accommodate our new platform of learning.
The eBinders will be rolled out in all Social Studies classrooms during the first quarter, then all other contents will start the second quarter. With everyone working together on a common goal, we can assure that our children/scholars achieve at their highest level. We also believe open communication is an important aspect in education and we want to let you know that we are here by appointment whenever you need us.
Parents are a major part of the AVID Program. We advise you to please visit www.avidonline.org for more information about the program and how you can support your scholar. Please look forward to some pertinent information in the next week or so to explain how you can best support your scholar at home. You can also follow us on Instagram @rrmsavid.
Thank you again for entrusting us with the education of your child and we look forward to working with you.
