Middle School Students Take on New Challenges
The AVID students from Lawrence Cook Middle School in Santa Rosa joined 25 leadership students to take on the challenges of the Four Winds Ropes Course. With AVID’s emphasis on collaboration, this was a perfect opportunity to build the sense of community that would make AVID a success . . . the day-long experience helped students get acquainted with their new AVID classmates, raise self-esteem, and create a "can-do" attitude. Students engaged in trust-building and team-building activities throughout the day . . .
In reflecting on the day, students commented that they came home with new friends and a feeling of tremendous accomplishment. They remarked that they surprised themselves by taking such risks and they appreciated their classmates' support and encouragement.—Sonoma County Office of Education
