    Additional Thoughts

  • We will meet in Advisory Every Day - (Tues - Friday) - but you will only meet in your other classes on your Cohort Days.
  • Mondays are reserved for Teacher Meetings, Training, etc.
  • Your teachers will explain more during this first week - and you will get into a routine.
  • You will have a schedule of classes for 9 weeks - these classes will give you a semester credit. At the end of 9 weeks - you will change to a new set of classes. We will repeat this process every 9 weeks. If a class is a "year long" class - you will have that class for two 9-week periods.
  • Feel free to ask your teachers any questions you might have.
  • Please have paper and pencil(or pen) ready for classes to take notes.
  • Work to develop a routine for class meetings and time to work.

  • We hope this information is helpful. We look forward to a great year.
