Curriculum Night Talk 2016

Allison F. Borchers, Principal

September 27, 2016

My main topic this evening is our Advisory Program pilot.   My goal is to provide you with some background about why we think an advisory program is important, what we are doing in order to create a strong one, and what you can expect in terms of communication and outreach related to the advisory program this year.  

Advisory programs are consistently recommended by policy guides and education advocates as a key component of a highly functional middle school.   Why?  Middle school is challenging from a developmental perspective.  Kids are changing on multiple fronts:  cognitively, physically, socially, and emotionally.  I’d like to take a moment to address each of these areas of change and challenge.
