Advisory

  • Homeroom is attached to 1st and 6th period and will not be reflected on student schedules. 

  • Students' Advisory classes consist of the same teachers and students as 6th period for 6th grade, 9th period for 7th grade, and 7th period for 8th grade.

  • All students will have a scheduled “lunch” period in their schedule (4th, 5th or 6th) in addition to the designated lunch times for teachers and students (11:40-12:40 T-F and 12:00-12:30 M). During your student’s scheduled “lunch” period, they should take a screen break, personal read, work on assignments, or get some fresh air.  Later in the quarter, this period will be used by teachers to check in with students, facilitate small groups, and preview/review lessons as needed. 

Genius Hour

 

Genius Hour on Mondays is a time that will allow YOU, the student, to decide what you want to learn, what activities you are going to engage in, and how you will demonstrate what you learned.

 

  • There will be 2 ways to approach Genius Hour

    • Genius Hour - You, the student, will choose a topic of interest. It could be a career goal, a hobby, a new passion, a solution to a problem, ANYTHING! You'll research, decide what activities you'll do, and choose how you would like to demonstrate your knowledge!

    • Choice Boards - If you want an opportunity to participate in activities that engage many different topics, you can create your own choice board or participate in 5 activities from one that is provided

  • Genius Hour will occur on Mondays while we are remote learning

    • 9/21, 9/28, 10/5, 10/19, 10/26

  • Multiple ways to demonstrate learning

    • Completing an interactive notebook

    • Advisory presentation virtually with peers and invited staff

    • Google Slideshow

    • Other ideas can be submitted as well
