Teacher of the Year
CONGRATULATIONS TO MR. PEDRO ANZOLA , CMS TEACHER OF THE YEAR FOR THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR!! WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!!
Chatham Middle Goes AVID!!
Chatham Middle has implemented AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) this school year! We are VERY excited to be the first middle school in Chatham County to pilot the AVID program--SCHOOLWIDE! Help your kids keep their AVID binders updated and organized!!
It just a short few days another summer will come to an end and students will be returning to another school year. I hope the 2016-17 school year will be different and exciting for our students! For the first time in Chatham County Schools' history we will be implementing the first AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Middle School program. We are ready to embark on this adventure with our staff, students, and parents. AVID is a process that integrates organizational skills, best teaching practices, study skills, and focus college-readiness. We will implement AVID school-wide along with one AVID tutorial class at each grade level. At the end of the 2015-16 school year, students applied for AVID and students were chosen for the class. Even though students may not be in the AVID class, the AVID process will be implemented in every class.
Along with AVID, our 7th and 8th grade teachers will begin the practice of “looping” with their students. It is our hope that students entering 7th grade will have one less anxiety having to learn all new teachers in 8th grade. Also, teachers will have a better understanding of their students’ learning needs and help close the learning gaps.
Finally, we will expand our laptop 1:1 program to include 6th grade. This means we will be 1:1 at all grade levels. 6th grade will be using Chromebooks. This will be new for our school since we have been a Mac school for such a long time. Our students and staff will be able to transition easily to the new technology tool.
We look forward to working with our school community during the 2016-17 school year. It’s going to take our parents, students and staff working together to help our school succeed.
