AVID Comes to Molokai High
By Ric Ornellas, MHS Teacher
There is good and bad news for Molokai teens. The bad news is summer vacation ends Aug. 3 with back to school classes at Molokai High School (MHS). The good news is AVID at MHS.
AVID – which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination – is an exciting program for all students in elementary, middle and high-school, for college and career preparation. Incoming MHS nineth graders will be able to sign up for an AVID class with Ms. Laura Peterson during period six. AVID activities are slated for classes of the seven AVID trained MHS teachers which will expand throughout the new school year. AVID is used at 57 Hawaii high schools and nationwide in 5,000 schools in 44 states and across 16 countries.
On Tuesday, Aug. 2, nineth graders can enroll for AVID, after meeting criteria, at Freshman Orientation or at the 6 p.m. Family Orientation, at MHS. If you’re really eager, come before Aug. 2 to the MHS registrar and check out the AVID program and change your period six class for AVID.
