We create academic groups of approximately 25 students. The academic groups are randomly assigned. Groups will include 7th and 8th graders.
Advisory time is created to maintain a “family” environment that provides social, emotional, and academic support. Students meet at the beginning of each day for both formal and informal check-in opportunities
Habits of Mind are skills sets that give students strategies to become powerful learners. Each advisory group works with the Habits of Minds.
Our priority is to ensure every family member feels welcomed, included and respected. This is the critical time for strong family involvement.
Our success as a school, and our children’s success as students, requires we all work together. When parents are actively involved in their children's education, their children do better in school.
Open communication is critical.
