Our First Days will start at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 11 and Wednesday, August 12. Students will sign into their Advisory Zoom at 8:30 sharp. Then, Advisors will lead sessions with information about:

  • How to Zoom
  • How to use Schoology


Students will also reconnect with (or meet) their Advisory teachers and peers and engage in fun, community-building activities. See the document below for instructions on how to attend Advisory for our first days.
