Getting to Know Our Advisories:
Jeff, 9th grade Humanities

Meet Jeff’s advisory. He has 13 ninth grade students. Jeff loves being an advisor because it gives him an opportunity to connect with his students by discussing important topics outside of the academic classroom. Here’s what his advisees had to say:

“Our advisory is awesome. We get a voice in what happens, we get to discuss what we enjoy, and what we like and want for the future of the school.” – Valentina

“I just wish we had even more time for advisory!” – Carl

“My favorite part is the one on one time. It’s a valuable way to interact with your peers and advisor.” – Dyan

“Advisory is the calmest time of the day. Jeff is very accomodating and works with my introverted personality.” – Austin

What We’re Reading

Our tenth graders are currently analyzing “The Hero’s Journey” archetype by Joseph Campbell. This specific archetype is used as a tool to identify the hero’s in various literary pieces. Kids were also asked to make a physical representation of their own journey and how they are, or can be, the hero’s in their own causes for justice and peace.
