Welcome to Advisory! I am so excited for another fun year!

Advisor's Role: The advisor is committed to developing a powerful relationship with each of his/her advisees.

Student's Role: Students' support of each other makes the classroom a safe place to try new concepts.

Parent's Role: Constant communication is necessary as a member of the "Learning Team." 

Five Purposes of Advisory

  • Academic Advising
  • Community Service
  • Community Conversations
  • Fun
  • Personal Development

Our theme for Advisory this year is: Where Am I Going?  We will be focusing on career exploration and college readiness.  For career exploration we will explore the following essential questions:

  • What are my interests?
  • How am I going to get there?
  • Who will help me get there?
  • What do I need to get there?

We will take an interest survey to find career matches and the students will come up with questions to ask during reverse job shadowing.  The students will choose a career from their interest survey and write a research report. 

For college readiness the students will view different college applications, create a time line of what needs to be done in order to meet their goals, learn about the ACT, and will present research on the college of their choice.
