ADVISORY TODAY

Today in Advisory each grade level had specific activities around our themes of Enrollment, Employment and Enlistment also known as the 3 E's.


9th grade: These students had an opportunity to connect with their 11th/12th grade mentors as a check in on how they are doing at the midpoint of the year.


10th grade: These students recapped College and Career Day with their Advisors. Current Career Tech Students from each program were available in the Commons to answer questions that these students had about a program if interest. They were also given time to fill out a survey related to College and Career Day


11th grade: These students were given the opportunity to work through Naviance ACT test prep as the ACT given to all Juniors here at JHS is a little over a month away.


12th grade: These students worked through college and career questions regarding "what's next" with their Advisors.
