Why the AVID Binder?

  • The AVID binder is an organizational tool to help students maintain notes and school work in ONE place. Stu­dents are expected to maintain a binder, with the require materials. They are expected to keep it organized using the AVID methods they have been taught. EVERY student will use the AVID binder system at Heaton. 

    As part of our school philosophy in preparing students for the rigors of high school and college, we believe that keeping ALL student work in one location helps with the organizational issues that middle school students need to improve upon when entering middle school.
