AVID Program at NPSS

AVID is an elective for grade 10 and 11 students. Students will prepare for their post-secondary experience by working on skills and visiting different campuses in the spring. The focus is on collaboration, writing, reading and inquiry.  Organization is also a key element for AVID. Students participate in weekly tutorials where time is provided to work on their other courses. AVID also promotes student leadership through events like Relay for Life, snow shovelling for seniors, bake sales, Pitch in Day and Link Crew. Mr. Redford, Ms. Harrison, and Mr. Graham will be coming around to classes next week with more information.
