10 Tips to Succeed in High School

The Session from 2018

The 8th grade Module was off to a great start! Isabel Velarde, a sophomore studying Philosophy and Mathematics at Fordham University and an Avenue Alum, presented “10 Tips for High School” about study, organization, and leadership to use this school year and into high school. After the presentation, participants worked on formulating their own mission statement and learned about team-building through a TED Talk-inspired exercise: the marshmallow challenge.

We discussed our expectations for the Avenue year and went through the contents in the Avenue binder. Then, we delved into this month's topic: what is character and how to build it, headed by Unit I Leaders, Izzy Legaspi and Marita Montes. During the breakout session, we filled out a "Who-am-I" questionnaire to get to know our own characters.
