General Announcements and Reminders
Student Ambassador Program
Avenues is looking for several Os Primeiros students to serve as representatives for the school at upcoming student and parent events! Student Ambassadors will be asked to join us at the Parent Information Center for evening social events for incoming 6th through 10th grade students in order to present their experience at Avenues so far and to answer students’ questions about the program. Kristen Ahye (firstname.lastname@example.org) will join us on Monday to present the program to students, and applications will be due on Wednesday, March 28th. Students will be expected to interview with the admissions team before being accepted as Student Ambassadors.
July-August Internship Opportunity for Os Primeiros Students
We are excited to announce an internship opportunity for students who will be in São Paulo for some or all of the winter. Students from the Os Primeiros program will be eligible to apply for an internship that will take place from July 16th to August 20th, with the expectation that students spend between 15 and 20 hours each week at our new campus helping us to prepare for the school opening! Students will serve as tour guides, help to host orientation, work as event hosts for our faculty professional development, and even participate in model classes based on their Os Primeiros experience. Applications will be available soon, and we would encourage any interested students to first apply as Student Ambassadors, which will help prepare them with the skills needed to succeed as an Avenues Intern. Please indicate your interest in summer internship opportunities on the Student Ambassador application form.
To avoid traffic on the streets during dismissal time, we strongly recommend to arrive at Civi-Co at 15h40.
Some I-20s have already been issued and are on the way to Brazil. Cristina Oliveira has been in contact with some of you in case documents are still missing. Please send them back as soon as possible. Time is flying!
