Graves Middle School of South Whittier School District was selected for the AVID Teacher Advocate Award which is awarded with a $10,000 grant from the AVID organization.
Graves Middle School is one of only five schools in the entire state of California that received this award.
"We were thrilled to be selected for this prestigious award from AVID,” Graves’ principal, Dr. Fraijo, stated. “We want to thank our AVID Site TEAM and our entire staff for all of the hard work they do to support our kids.”
This grant will go directly to the improvement of Graves’ already award winning AVID and AVID Excel programs.
