College Week!

This week, AVID would like help in spreading the college-going culture at Correia.  As the week goes on, we hope that you would be willing to share your educational choices and experiences with your students. Discussions about educational opportunities beyond high school can help all of our students see themselves as being college bound. There are many options for furthering one's education, though there will be an emphasis on 4-Year universities, please help students understand the variety of options available to them.

Week at a glance:

 Monday: Pencil distribution to all students during advisory. Announcement for students will be included in the pencil bag.

Tuesday: CalSoap presentation of College: Making It Happen, March 13, 6 p.m., Correia auditorium (see attached flyer)
This presentation is for Dana, Correia, and PLHS families. We would really like to encourage all Correia families to attend. Food will be available for purchase at 5 p.m. There will be approximately 20 students volunteering for the event. Staff volunteers would be welcomed.

Wednesday: College Wear Wednesdays.  Many schools support an ongoing college-going culture for their students by wearing college gear once a week.  Your participation makes it fun for the students and opens a dialogue about our educational choices. Raffle tickets will be given to student and teacher participants. The collection box is in the Main Office. Raffle winners will be announced Friday, 7th period, prizes can be picked up in the library after school.

Thursday: Take a Walk For Inspiration.  Take a walk on one of our three walking paths on campus, as you get some fresh air, read quotes that may inspire. If anyone was inspired to write or draw anything inappropriate, on any of the posted signs , please remove immediately. Call room 609 or send a student for a replacement.

Friday: College Fair in the Triangle Room. Please stop by and visit the College Fair any time during the day. History teachers will bring each of their classes for a 10-15 minute visit. A schedule and student worksheet will be sent by Thursday, contact me if there are any special circumstances that need to be addressed in the scheduling.
