Advisory

WHAT IS ADVISORY?

Advisory is a year-long class and often acts as a student’s homeroom. The main purpose of the class is to help students build relationships on a more individual and personal basis and many school-wide and team theme activities are done through this class. In addition, daily all-school announcements are part of advisory.

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Advisory is used for intervention time (iTime). Teachers may require certain students to attend for extra help on specific items. Students may choose to go to intervention if there is room. Students who do not need intervention will participate in an extension activity/class. Students are notified each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of where they need to go.
