March 09, 2015 8th grade AVID students came up to shadow the 9th and 10th grade AVID students to see what it’s like to be a high school AVID Student. The high school AVID teachers; Mrs. Debbie Okubo (9th grade), Mrs. Kehau Hedlund (10th, 11th & 12th grade), Ms. Fern white (Curriculum Coordinator) made it a goal to encourage the middle school students to become AVID students as they enter high school. During the time they were here the middle schoolers followed the 9th and 10th  graders around to their 5th, 6th, & 7th period. During 7th period (AVID class) and conducted a power building game, to show communication, collaboration, and reaction time. After 7th period the 8th graders returned to the middle school and the 9th and 10th graders wrote summaries about how it was to show them around.
