Dear Lincoln Families
I wanted to share some exciting news about our school. We have introduced the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) system school-wide, and I'm genuinely thrilled about the positive impact it's making. AVID’s mission is to close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. AVID is not just another program; it's a unique opportunity that comes with some fantastic benefits:
College and Career Readiness: AVID is all about preparing students for success not just in school but also for college and beyond. It's instilling skills that are crucial for future endeavors.
Focused Learning Strategies: AVID emphasizes essential learning strategies like organization, critical thinking, and effective communication. This means that students at all levels are gaining valuable skills that will benefit them throughout their academic journey and beyond.
Inclusive and Supportive Environment: AVID fosters a positive and inclusive school environment. It's not just about individual success; it's about creating a supportive community where every student feels valued and encouraged.
Parental Involvement Opportunities: AVID encourages parents to actively participate in their child's education. I think this is fantastic as it means you can be more involved in your child’s learning journey and support the school's efforts.
Building a Culture of Lifelong Learners: AVID ensures our school is contributing to creating lifelong learners. It's not just about memorizing facts; it's about fostering a love for learning and critical thinking skills that will stay with us.
I'm genuinely excited about the positive changes I've already seen, and I believe this system will continue to make a significant impact on our education. I’m looking forward to sharing more about it with you!
