Senior Mya Riley works the AVID table at curriculum night on to get more students involved. AVID stands for Advanced Via Individual Determination, and is a program that was brought into the North Kansas City School District to help students become more prepared for college. The district website explains AVID as “one period a day, students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and ask probing questions, get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college attainable.” Sophomore Alyssa George said that AVID coordinator, Todd Marcantonio, is extremely helpful to the students here at Winnetonka.

“I like him (Marcantonio) because he always makes sure that we are on top of our game and he give us the time we need to make sure we are succeeding in all of our other classes,” George said.
