This year, AVID did something new for Halloween. Many of the students are already aware of the fundraiser AVID had last week, but in case someone wasn’t, Boo Grams were sent out this year. They were a fun little gift that almost all students enjoyed, but most students don’t even know the reason behind them.

AVID sold these Boo Grams to raise money for future AVID field trips.

Boo Grams officially were sent out October 31st, Halloween. AVID hopes to have raised enough to help them get a field trip to Chapman University, and maybe even UC Santa Barbara. More…

Not too far from here, only a walking distance away, is the Goldenwest Community College. This is where our very own AVID program plans on taking a field trip. They are hoping for the chance to learn about what it would take to get into community college, and how to get through community college to a University.

Tuesday, October 10th, the AVID group will take a walking trip to Golden West College. It will be good for the students to see firsthand what college is like, and the tour will hopefully make the idea real to them.

Mrs.Valverde, an AVID teacher here at Stacey, believes that knowing ahead of time how to plan for the future is important. She says, “A dream without a plan, is just a wish.” More…

For AVID’s final field trip this third trimester, the 7th and 8th graders visited the University of San Diego. On Tuesday, May 30, AVID classes visited UCSD for a field trip.

From approximately 9:00 am to 10:40 am, the students had free time, having the ability to walk around and explore the school’s campus. At 11:00 am to 12:00 pm, the students received a tour around the campus. Afterward, the students were given extra time. The students stayed there for about 5 hours. More…

Stacey’s Glowintine Dance Thursday, Feb. 9 was a huge success, Cougars!

The black lights and glow sticks really made the event shine. Flowers were sold at the dance for a dollar and people were handing them out to their friends. Many students were also taking photos with friends in a room leadership had filled with balloons.

Student Ellie Atkins says, “The dance was fun, it was different from the others. They played good music.”

The event was the last dance sponsored by Leadership and AVID this year. The last dance for all grade levels will be in the spring and will be hosted by the PTSA.
