On July 19, 2009 several teachers and Administrators from West Chatham Middle School attended the week long AVID Summer Institute in Atlanta, GA.

The week was dedicated to training and educating school staff from across the world on implementing and supporting the AVID program.

AVID is designed to increase school wide learning and performance. The Mission of AVID is to ensure that all students and most especially the least served students in the middle become capable of completing a college preparatory path.

AVID Summer Institute is an opportunity for new and experienced site teams to learn more about AVID strategies and methodologies. Over the course of five days, participants take content specific training; spend time collaborating with their site teams to develop a site plan; and participate in special event activities, including guest speakers, special interest sessions and a luncheon highlighted by AVID student and teacher speakers.

A parent/ student Cake and Ice cream info night will be held Monday September 28, 2009 from 6-7p.m. in the WCMS cafeteria.
