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, an 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.
