Parents of students who will be in 7th grade next year (current 6th graders) at Nicollet Junior High are invited to attend a special information night on Thursday, Jan. 29 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will provide information about registering for classes and about Nicollet in general.
Then, starting at 7:30 p.m., there will be an informational meeting about the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program at Nicollet. The AVID program accelerates students who academically have test scores or grades in the middle range. AVID supports determined students to take honors level courses, which they may not otherwise qualify for, with a long term goal of preparing students on an accelerated path to college. AVID is a research based program with proven results. Students must apply to be in AVID.
