This middle and high school Advisory program focuses on character
development and academic achievement for all students involved.
The Advisory provides the students with the structure, discipline,
and support; and attitudes, knowledge, and skills necessary to:
- Enhance their sense of self
- Develop empathy and respect for others
- Improve their academic performance
The Advisory is based on a 35-minute, daily Advisory period.
However, it can be adapted to accommodate other formats:
||Clap In to provide a ceremony
that enables the students to begin class as a single unit, creating
class cohesiveness and mutual respect between the students and
to develop focus, discipline, relaxation, and alertness in order
to physically and mentally prepare the students for learning.
||Light Physical Warm-Up Activities
to oxygenate the blood and develop focus, discipline, relaxation,
and alertness in order to physically and mentally prepare the
students for learning.
||General School Announcements.
||Student of the Day to
enhance self-esteem and create class cohesiveness and mutual
respect in order to improve overall behavior, including empathy

social behavior as well as increase overall effort.
||Clap Out, lead by the

to end class as a single unit, creating class cohesiveness,
respect for other classmates, and a sense of personal presence
