PSE and MCHS Host AVID Fair

Martin County High School seniors visited Port Salerno Elementary just before Winter Break to host an AVID-related Fair for fifth-grade students.

A.V.I.D. stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. Students in AVID classes are taught specific strategies to prepare them for college eligibility and success.

The MCHS seniors are enrolled in AVID. They created AVID-related activities to engage the elementary students and show them why the AVID strategies are useful in school and at home. Activities included matching mascots of Florida colleges to the correct university, organizing binders, focusing on what they can control v.s. can't control and more.

PSE is the only AVID elementary school in the Martin County School District, but AVID is available at all five middle schools and three high schools.

Watch the students have fun interacting with each other and playing the AVID-related games:
