AVID

The AVID class at Laguna Middle School is doing a project about how we can help the community and the United States by researching about many different topics. For example, we are doing our projects on Littering, Homelessness, teen depression. The reason that AVID is doing this is because we want to make a difference in our community and also the United States. The AVID class has been working really hard. The group that is doing the littering project, they have been collecting trash around the school campus and they have collected some much trash because many people and students at Laguna Middle School litter and they don't care where they are or what problems littering their trash can cause. They have put some trash and recycling bins around the school campus to see if people throw their trash away in the trash and recycling bins instead of littering and some results were that there was a few trash that was in the trash bins and also recycling. There is a group also that is trying to help the homeless by trying to make backpacks and also they are trying to get peoplr to donate some things so that they can give away to the homelessness.   
AVID
The seventh and eighth grade AVID class in Laguna Middle School went on a school field trip to two colleges called Fresno State and Bakersfield University. The AVID class had to be at Laguna Middle School at 6:30 am and then at 7:00 am we left the school in a Charter bus. When we arrived at the first college which was Fresno State, we got there and we first went into a bookstore and many students bought many different things like shirts, and some snacks to eat on the way. Then we went to go eat lunch on campus and we had a few choices where to eat some of the choices were Taco Bell, Panda Express and  Subway. After we were done eating lunch then we went to go explore the campus with Mr. Schalde and Mr. Ou. There were so many college students that were on campus.
