ADVISORY BLOCK DATES
Tuesday, November 19 - Day 2
Tuesday, January 28 - Day 7
Tuesday, March 17 - Day 2
The purpose of advisory is to foster a positive school culture and personalize all students’ learning experiences. One of the objectives of Advisory Block is to allow students time to figure out who they are, where they’re headed, and how they’re going to get there. Through advisory, each student has an additional teacher who knows them and can help them navigate high school so that they leave with a meaningful, personalized plan and are prepared for post secondary options.

Period 1 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM
Period 2 8:34 AM - 9:34 AM
